How can I get MPEG-2 video into Final Cut Pro X/7

It’s really a headache that Final Cut Pro(FCP 7, FCP X), such a great movie making software program, doesn’t accept MPEG-2, one of the most popular video compression format. When importing MPEG-2 to Final Cut Pro X/7, you may come across lots of problems as quoted below:

Q1: Import MPEG-2 to FCP 7 “I have several MPEG-2 video files on which I need to perform some edits.  When I tried to import the MPEG-2 files into Final Cut Pro 7, I learned that Final Cut Pro can’t import MPEG files.”

Q2: FCP X does not recognize MPEG-2 “I am trying to import MPEG-2 files into Final Cut Pro X. I have the raw files from a Sony Handicam HDR-SR5… These files were recorded as MPEG-2 files and copied from the camera hard drives to a local hard drive on my computer. Final Cut Pro X does not recognize the files and will not import them.”

As we all know, MPEG-2 is a popular compression format that reduces the size and data rate of video files. It is the standard used by DVD players. MPEG-2 reduces the files size by removing redundancy with-in frames and between groups of frames. It’s normally easy to playback but not for editing. If you’re in such a situation, there is an easy way to fix the issue.

Since Apple ProRes MOV is the most compatible video format for FCP editing, so you need to find a third party program to convert MPEG-2 to ProRes first before loading to FCP. Here Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac is highly recommended to help you achieve your goal.

Below is the detailed guide on converting MPEG-2 clips to Final Cut Pro X/7 friendly videos for smoothly playback and editing.
