I have download serveral mpg files , how can i import those files to final cut pro. i need help.
Final Cut Pro officially supports importing files in 3GP, AVI, MP4, MXF, QuickTime, AVCHD, DV, DVCPRO HD, H.264, HDV, Motion JPEG, MPEG IMX
You must keep you mpg file to be an FCP friendly format mentioned above.
Here i think you may try Handbrake to convert MPG into an mp4 format. please note Handbrake can only output mp4 and mkv files.
Or try some other third-party tool, like Appgeeker Video converter, check the guide.
How to convert MPG to QuickTime MOV
I haven't done this in a long while, so do some research if wont work.
Hope it works.
Actually, MPEG is a delivery format, not an editing format. What’s more, it is difficult for FCP to recognize and afford its video codec. As we all know, the most compatible video codec for FCP editing is Apple ProRes. So the simplest way for editing MPG file in FCP X is to find a third party program to tanscode the MPG videos.
