There’s a problem that troubled me for days. I’m trying to import Yuneec Q500 Typhoon 4K into Final Cut Pro
. But the result let me down- FCP won’t work the 4K clips from Q500 Typhoon CGO3-GB camera. Digging around the net, we found that more than one Q500 users are stuck in the issue. I feel like there's a workaround that I'm not seeing. So I have scoured the internet furtherly, tried everything I could find, and have had a decent solution yet.
Actually, Apple’s Final Cut Pro especially FCP 7 won’t deal with 4K
videos instantly. The easy workaround I have worked out is to use a third-party video app to convert Yuneec Q500 Typhoon 4K to ProRes for FCP direct editing. Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac
