Nikon D5 import to FCP 7 - Edit Nikon D5 4K H.264 MOV files in Final Cut Pro X (El Capitan)

How to edit Nikon D5 4K/1080P H.264/mpeg-4, .MOV files in Final Cut Pro? This article is going to introduce a workable solution to help convert Nikon D5 video clips to ProRes for editing in FCP X/7/6 easily.

Nikon has kept the control layout of the D5 the same as the D4S, making it easy for existing users to upgrade or swap between the two cameras.

The ability to record 4K (3840×2160 pixel) video is pretty much taken as read these days with every new camera that’s announced, but one disappointment with the D5 is that it’s only capable of recording 3 mins of footage to an installed card. This may acceptable to anyone wanting to shoot snappy, dynamic clips, but there a lots of people who want to shoot for longer.

Video Frame Rates and Sizes

3,840 x 2,160 (4K): 29.97p, 25p or 23.976p.

1,920 x 1,080: 59.94p, 50p, 29.97p, 25p, 23.976p.

1,920 x 1,080 cropped-sensor; 59.94p, 50p, 29.97p, 25p, 23.976p.

1,280 x 720; 59.94p, 50p.

You can select high or normal quality at all these, except only normal at 4K.

H.264/MPEG-4, .MOV

After a relatively short shoot with the D5 it’s not possible to tell if its autofocus system is better than the D4S’s, but it’s clear that it is very good. Similarly, the D5’s image quality also appears to be very high at least with the standard sensitivity range.

However, when you attempt to import Nikon D5 4K/1080P videos to Final Cut Pro 7 or FCP X for some editing, you may encountered many problems, like import it slowly, and couldn't edit videos smoothly. The reason that you can't edit Nikon D5 4k H.264/mpeg-4 .mov files in FCP is simple: the Nikon DSLR uses the sophisticated H.264 compression method for recording video files to the camera’s memory card. This is an ideal file type for video capture in an SLR camera, delivering relatively compact file sizes with image quality noticeably superior to alternate video compressions (such as Motion JPEG). However, the H.264 compression format requires that files be transcoded into a format better suited to editing, effects, and color grading; this would usually be Apple ProRes codec, which ensures maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with Final Cut Pro 7 or FCP X.

So, the best method is to convert Nikon MOV to ProRes before loading Nikon D5 4K H.264 MOV to FCP 7 or FCP X. For this purpose, this article mainly shows you how to transcode Nikon D5 footage to ProRes 422 in details.

First download and install Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac. Why choose this video converter for Mac users? Basically, it does a good job in converting H.264 .mov files to MPEG-2 formats for Adobe Premiere editing in sync and without lossing quality. Does it convert MOV to .mpg fast? Based on our testing, it’s much faster than some other tools like Handbrake. If you are Windows users, please get the equivalent Windows version Brorsoft Video Converter. Download and you can follow the steps below.

Convert/Import Nikon D5 videos to Final Cut Pro for smoothly editing on Mac

Step 1: Load D5 footage to the software

Install and launch Nikon Video Converter for Mac, and then click "Add" button to browse to Nikon MOV footage either from cam HDD or SD card or drag the footage from your D5 camera to the program.

Step 2: Select output format

Click on "Format" bar set an Apple ProRes format. You are advised to "Follow Final Cut Pro" template and choose "Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)". If you prefer smaller file size, choose "Apple ProRes 422 (LT) (*.mov)" instead. The "Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy) (*.mov)" format offers file size at SD levels and is recommended for 480i/p and 576i/p shootings.

Tip: If you are a FCP 6 or former version user, you only can choose ProRes 422 and ProRes 422 HQ as the output format.

Step 3: Choose proper parameters in Settings

Click the "Settings" button and customize proper video/ audio parameters if necessary. E.g. Set video size to 1920*1080 or set smaller bitrate to further cut down export file size. You may skip this step as well.

Step 4: Start converting Nikon MOV to ProRes codec

Click "Convert" to start encoding Nikon D5 4K MOV to Apple ProRes 422 codec for Final Cut Pro X or FCP 7. The conversion process may take long time but it will not bother to render in FCP. After conversion just click the "Open" button to locate converted Nikon D5 footage for FCP post-production.

Additional Tips:

1. If you are also a FCP X user, before you try to do the conversion, don’t forget to make sure that you have installed the Apple ProRes Codec manually since the FCP X asks users to install it by themselves.

2. If you want to edit Nikon D5 mov in iMovie or Final Cut Express, you just need to choose the “iMovie and Final Cut Express -> Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC) (*.mov)" in the second step.

3. If you want to batch conversion, the professional iMedia Converter for Mac is the best choice for you.

How to Convert Zoom Q3 HD MOV to AVI for Pinnacle Studio

Install and launch the Video Converter, and then click "Add Files" button to import your Zoom Q3 MOV files to the software. 

Tip: If you wanna combine mov video clips into one file, you can click the "Merge into one" box. 


Step 2: Select Pinnacle Studio friendly format as output format 

Click "Format" bar to determine output format. Here we choose "HD Video" -> "AVI HD Video (*.avi)" as output, which seems to be the best one due to the great video quality but small size. Of course, MPG, WMV are also the proper formats for Pinnacle. 


Step 3: Determine you video resolution, bit rate, frame rate, etc. 

Click "Settings" button if you'd like to customize advanced audio and video parameters like Video Codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, Audio codec, sample rate, audio channels. Notice that you can not "convert up" video quality. If you selected HD Video in Step 2, we advise you to adjust the A/V parameters to be the same with source MOV footage so as to bear least quality loss at proper file size. To cut down file size, you may set down video bit rate, the lower bit rate you set the smaller file size you get. Do not forget to click "OK" to confirm your settings. Then type in a desired output location in the "Output" box. 


Step 4: Convert H.264 MOV to Pinnacle Studio Ultimate friendly video format. 

Click the convert button under the preview window, the converter will start encoding Zoom Q3 HD H.264 MOV for importing to Pinnacle Studio. Soon after the conversion is finished, just click "Open" button to get the generated files for edit in Pinnacle Studio 14/15/16 perfectly.

Edit HDC-TM300 in Pinnacle - Solve Panasonic TM300 files crash while importing to Pinnacle Studio 14/15/16/Ultimate

A step by step guide shows you how to convert Panasonic HDC-TM300 M2TS files to Pinnacle Studio on Mac (OS X 10.11 El Capitan included). So you can freely use your AVCHD videos on Pinnacle Studio 14/15/16/Ultimate.

Question: Panasonic Tm300 Crash When Trying To Import Mts Files to Pinnacle ?
"hello. I have updated Pinnacle to the latest version . I have Panasonic HDC-TM300 camcorder bought from Japan. When I open log and transfer window the clips appear there but when I am traing to preview them or import them Pinnacle Studio crashes. I have tryied from a hard drive too.
One more interesting thing - when I am previewing files (not playing them ) I can see the movie contents but the movie is under green layer. If I am trying to play preview Pinnacle crashes.

can you help me somehow ?"

Okay, although, it claims that Pinnacle Studio can support AVCHD files, there are so many limits you are facing like the System Requirements: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.66 gHz or higher required for 1920x1080 AVCHD editing, 2GB system memory required for AVCHD and more. If you can't meet these requirements, you will get troubles when importing .mts/.m2ts files to Pinnacle Studio for editing.

If you’re in such a situation, there is an easy way to fix the issue. Get a MTS Converter and transcode .mts, .m2ts files to MPG, which will save you both time and trouble, and all you need is to drag the result videos for prompt editing. For this purpose, this article will show you how to convert Panasonic HDC-TM300 MTS to MPEG-2 in detail for Pinnacle Studio editing smoothly.

How to Convert Panasonic TM300 AVCHD for Editing in Pinnacle Studio smoothly

Step 1: Download, install and run Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter, and then click the “Add” button to load the .mov videos.

The program is an easy-to-use MTS converter for you, which can help you change MTS/M2TS into a different format like MPEG-2, AVI with least quality loss. You should then be able to import the new file into Pinnacle Studio with smooth editing without any trouble. It will ensure a perfect QuickTime file importing, playing and editing workflow with Pinnacle Studio 9/11/12/14/16.

Step 2: Click “Format” bar and choose "Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas > MPEG-2 (*.mpg)” as output format on the drop-down menu. Of course, you can also choose AVI, MP4, WMV from “Common Video” as the output format.

Tip: Click the Settings icon to adjust video and audio parameters on the Profile Setting as you need to get the best quality video.

Step 3: Simply click the "Convert" button to start converting and everything else will be automated. If you have added quite a bunch of video files, it would take some time to convert. In such case, you can click Option and tick the box “Shut down the computer after conversion”.

You're done. Now your Panasonic HDC-TM300 MTS/M2TS files will be converted into MPG files ready to be imported to Pinnacle Studio beautifully.
