    XDCAM, introduced by Sony in 2003, has four different products lines – the XDCAM SD, XDCAM HD, XDCAM EX and XDCAM HD422, which differ in encoder, frame size, container and recording media. Designed for heavy-duty field acquisition, Sony XDCAM camcorders provide the excellent picture quality, operability and reliability. Besides that, Sony XDCAM camcorders offer a wide range of innovative features that maximize the benefits of nonlinear disc media.


    Sony XDCAM camcorders usually record MXF and MP4 format video, and it usually use MPEG2 codec, this codec is not good for editing in FCP X, and you will encounter importing and codec problems when you try to import Sony XDCAM footage to Final Cut Pro X.

    Import Sony XDCAM media to FCP X issues


    Q1. I just downloaded the trial version FinalCut X. I've tried to imort video both with XDCam browser, and straight from an external hard drive and gotten the same blank geen screen results. I really think I can work with this software if I could just find out what I am missing. Updated eveything when I downloaded the software. Can someone please help?


    Q2. Hi I'm a TV cameraman and I need to export my edited job from FCP X back to my sony XDCAM F800 camera. I could do this on FCP 6 and 7 back it doesn't seem to work on X does anybody how to do this or any plugins so I can export back to XDCAM.

    Q4. I'd like to import and edit .mxf video files in Final Cut Pro, what plug-in do I need to install? Log and Transfer doesn't work because .mxf files are gray out not allowing me to select it.


    Q5: I've been given some MXF files that were made by a Sony XDCAM camera. How do i import those files to FCP? I read a bit and I concluded to Calibrated. Is there another way, maybe a freeware utility?

    Import WMV to FCP X with the Best Quality


    Overview: WMV is a Microsoft Media Video features high definition quality. As a Mac user, you may often feel a headache to deal with WMV format, including importing WMV to FCP X for further editing with the best quality.


    **************************


    The .wmv (Windows Media Video) is the main format used in all videos processed and saved using the Windows system and its video tools such as Windows Movie Maker. It exists in every computer running a Windows operating system and stands today as one of the most used video formats. While the .wmv format is perfect for Windows Movie Maker, it's just inevitable to attempt using .wmv formats in other video editing software such as Final Cut Pro. Since .wmv videos are native to Windows, some Mac users may encounter problems when trying to import WMV to FCP X for editing with the best quality.


    Some questions are found in the WMV to FCP X forum:


    "I'm a newbie using FCP and have a .wmv file that I would like to add chapters to and want to know the best way to do it. I'm assuming I'd have to convert the .wmv file to a .mov or .avi file in order to work with it in FCP but I'm not sure what the best way is to convert the file in a format that'll work. I am not sure if compressor can help with that?"


    "I have tried a couple of different conversion programs to convert a .wmv file to .mov or .mp4, and all seem to result in a viewable mp4, but when I import into FCP and try to put the footage into my sequence, it won't render. The sound renders, but the video remains 'unrendered'. Does anyone know why this is happening and how can I import WMV to FCP X?"


    To do this, a Mac WMV to FCP X video converter is needed. Here Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac is highly recommended to convert WMV to FCP X friendly video format on Mac. Moreover, some video editing features such as trimming, cropping, rotating, merging, adding watermarks, etc. are provided to take your videos to the next level.

    How to import WMV to FCP X with the best quality?

    Step 2: Click the "Format" bar to get the drop-down menu and you can get "Final Cut Pro>>Apple ProRes codec", including ProRes 422, ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 422 (LT), ProRes 422 (Proxy) and ProRes 4444. Choose the proper one you want. Here, we suggest you to choose Apple ProRes 422 .mov as the best output format.


    Step 3: Press the "Settings" icon and you'd better set the video frame rate as 30fps, video size as 1920*1080 for editing WMV in FCP X easily.


    Step 4: Click the "Convert" button at the bottom right corner to start converting WMV to FCP X. Once the conversion completes, you are free to import WMV to FCP X for further editing!


    Conclusion: You don't need to wait around during the WMV to FCP X conversion. It does WMV to FCP X video conversion like a charm and the output files will maximally preserve the quality of your original WMV clips.
