Transcode Canon 60D H.264 MOV to Apple ProRes for FCP without rendering
  • Released in September, 2010, The Canon EOS 60D is in many ways a great camera: fast, feature-packed, and with excellent photo and video quality. Offering photographers the freedom to go beyond stills, the Canon 60D captures 1920x1080p HD video with a variety of user-selectable frame rates, including 30, 25 and 24fps, as well as 720p video at 60 and 50fps. Movie Crop mode is also available, recording with the central 640x480 pixel area of the sensor to create an effective magnification of approximately seven times the focal length of the lens.
  • If you own a Canon EOS 60D, you can use it to capture some interesting videos in daily life or in some important occasions. You would like to edit the Canon 60D Videos with Final Cut Pro 6 or Final Cut Pro 7, but failed. As we know, the videos shot by Canon 60D are in QuickTime MOV format with H.264/MPEG-4 Video Codec and uncompressed PCM audio Codec. FCP doesn’t support Canon EOS 60D H.264 .mov videos naturally.
