Here it mainly shows you an easy way to import and edit Canon EOS 5D Mark IV mov files in Final Cut Pro X on Mac by transcoding mov to Apple ProRes Codec.

Canon has released the 5D Mark IV DSLR which is an outstanding still photography option and an able 4K-capable video machine. This multimedia maven offers a newly developed 30.4MP full-frame CMOS sensor paired with the DIGIC 6+ image processor in order to balance fine detail and resolution with low-light performance and sensitivity. All of these are great, till you find it is a problem importing the recorded H.264 MOV footages to Final Cut Pro for X editing.

Q1: I’m hoping some folks can help me here as I’m stumped. I shot around 60 minutes of last evening with my Canon 5D Mark IV. But FCPX doesn’t like them, won’t import them and, in fact, I delete them. Not sure what use they were but they are of no use in FCPX now.

Q2: Hi, I know this is a pretty basic question, but I don’t feel like spending a lot of time on google. The way I thought was set it to 60fps and shutter at 125 in camera…then slow it by 50% in FCPX, but I’m not real happy with the results. Also, I saw a tutorial that used “Retiming” in Final Cut but I didn’t have any luck with that. Best way to get smooth Canon 5D Mark IV Slow-Motion in FCP X? Thanks!

Q3: I cant seem to figure out how to import converted Canon 5D Mark IV h.264 files to prores 4444 using compressor into FCPX. It doesnt seem to read the files? or if i import the Canon 5D Mark IV h.264 file straight into FCP X and make an optimized media copy so that its 422 it doesn’t read it in FCPX?
