Q: I got some Flash Video/YouTube video (*.flv, *.f4v) files and HD Video (*.tod, *.mod, *.mov, *.mts, *.m2t, *.m2ts, *.ts, *.tp, *.trp, *.evo, *.mkv, *.dv ), stored on my mac computer, and I wanna import them to video editor FCP for editing. But the editor seems that can not recognize these files. Who guys can give me some suggestion?
Mac users like to edit videos on Final Cut Pro, which is a powerful video editing, and it now import and edit AVCHD, H.264, AVC-Intra, DVCPRO HD, but it can’t import AVI, MKV, WMV, M4V videos, which is really a pain. So how to make it possible?
Yes! There are many ways, but from which we should pick one of the most simple.Take my own for an example. I am a video-editing lover, and I want to edit iTunes M4V movies, TV shows or music videos on Final Cut Pro.But as M4V is DRM protected by Apple’s FairPlay copyright policy, it is not supported by Final Cut Pro. So in order to import iTunes M4V to Final Cut Pro, we should firstly remove DRM from the M4V files and convert the M4V to Final Cut Pro supported formats, like .MOV. In this case, a professional Final Cut Pro Video Converter for Mac can be useful for those who can’t import iTunes m4V to FCP on Mac OS X.
