Does Canon EOS-1D X Mark III MP4 just go straight into FCP X, Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve? In this article, we will give you some tips to import and edit Canon H.265 MP4 files in editing software without problems.
The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is a professional digital SLR with a newly designed 20MP full-frame CMOS sensor and Digic X processor. It has an all-new 191-point AF system that uses ‘deep learning’ to track heads and faces. The Mark III can capture 5.5K/60p Raw video as well as UHD and DCI 4K at up to 60p (though AF is locked at that frame rate – a cropped DCI 4K/60p mode offers AF). When using Canon Log it can record 10-bit, 4:2:2 video internally. As one would expect, a mic and headphone socket are included.
FCP X, Premiere Pro and DaVinci Resolve is a good software to edit video clips from camcorder or camera on your Mac and it comes with the ability to stabilize shaky clips exported from your Canon, JVC, Sony, Panasonic, GoPro, Fujifilm camera or camcorder. Apple claims that FCP X supports most commonly-used video codecs, including H.265. However, all files aren’t equal when working in FCP X. If you are an experienced FCP 7 or FCP 6 user, you may learn that there is no way to import single H.265 file into Final Cut Pro that you have previously transferred from the camera to your computer unless you have used the Archive method which saves the whole file structure of the camera onto your computer.
Though you’ve followed the step-by-step instructions from DaVinci Resolve, sometimes you still get errors from DaVinci Resolve when importing H.265 to DaVinci Resolve, especially when importing some 4K H.265 video files. Your camcorder just cannot be recognized at all. Back to the point, if you’re attempting to edit Canon EOS-1D X Mark III H.265 clips with DaVinci Resolve, what’s the available workaround? As for Premiere Pro, it doesn’t supports H.265 video importing and editing at all.
Actually, it’s easy to get FCP X, Premiere Pro and DaVinci Resolve work well with Canon EOS-1D X Mark III 4K MP4 files. The best method to avoid any problems and save time is to transcode H.265 MP4 to FCP X/ Premiere Pro/ DaVinci Resolve native format. By using the professional app entitled Acrok Video Converter Ultimate for Mac (macOS Catalina is supported), you will accomplish the H.265 to FCP X/ Premiere Pro/ DaVinci Resolve conversion easily, with ultra fast speed and loss-less video quality. Below is a step-by-step guide for you.
