Do you all have any experience of working DNxHD videos in FCP? I've got a Blackmagic Design Hyperdeck Shuttle. I recorded some uncompressed Quicktime clips and some MXF Clips that should be recorded using DNxHD 185 / 220. I'm trying to import DNxHD files to FCP but they show with a black screen on the thumbnails in the import tab. After imported, there is only black video and no sound once played. What could be causing that? How can i edit them?
