Summary: Looking for a professional tool to encode AVI format to ProRes? Below is how to.
"Is there anybody here meet problems while importing AVI videos into FCP? I have got some AVI files that I want to edit them in Final Cut Pro. Every time I try to import the AVI video to FCP it crashes. Do I need to convert videos into ProRes first before loading into FCP timeline?"
Apple ProRes is Apple's professional visually lossless video codec, which compresses video very mildly. It is a kind of intermediate Codec optimised for capturing and editing video especially with Final Cut Pro. Thus, if you wanna edit AVI videos in FCP, you'd better change AVI to ProRes first since AVI is merely a wrapper for many different codecs that FCP can not afford well.
Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac is a perfect video converting software for Mac users to transcode AVI videos to Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov), Apple ProRes 422(HQ) (*.mov), Apple ProRes 422(LT) (*.mov), Apple ProRes 422(Proxy) (*.mov), Apple ProRes 4444 (*.mov). Besides FCP ProRes codec, it also supplies other codecs for NLEs including MPEG-2 for Premiere, AIC for iMovie, DNxHD for Avid and more. Now, download the software on Mac and follow the guide below to start conversion.

Step 3: In the Profile "Settings" page, you can adjust the video and audio parameters including bitrate, video size, frame rate, channel and more.
Step 4: Tap the Convert button to start transcoding AVI formats to ProRes for FCP 6/7/X on Mac OS X.
