The Canon EOS 5D Mark III has been released for a long time, but the old 5D Mark II is still popular for users. With the 35mm full-frame CMOS Sensor, it can record files featuring a remarkable 21.1 million effective pixels for a maximum recorded resolution of 5616 x 3744 pixels. It also features the Canon's latest DIGIC 4 Image Processor, which transforms data from the large CMOS sensor at extremely high speed for photos of exceptional quality and definition. Besides, like other professional Digital camera, the 5DM2 has a big 3-inch screen and supports Full 1080p HD recording.

As far as I know it is an excellent camera with many pros. Of course, there's nothing is perfect. You may got some troubles with recorded 1080p H.264 MOV videos in Final Cut Pro X. For example "The following clip encountered an error during import and is still referencing media on the camera:" My workflow:copy files, with folder structure from 5DMKII to external HD.use the "new" (but crappy) import tool in FCPX.get error while importing..."

From googling, I found many users met the similar troubles. And you? Do you know the incompatible reason? In fact the recorded H.264 MOV by EOS 5D Mark 2 is a long GOP format, which is highly compressed. Many Mac softwares can't work well with it if your computer lost something. To avoid the issue, I advice you to transcode the recorded video to FCP' native format Apple ProRes. But some conversions may lost the original video quality. So to keep the HD qaulity, you'd better choose the professional Video Converter for Mac, which can help you quickly transform Canon EOS 5D Mark III 1080p MOV to ProRes for FCP X and other video format as you want without quality loss.


Step 1: Run the superb Video Converter as the best H.264 MOV to FCP X Converter, then pls imputing the clips from Canon EOS 5D to it. You are advised to use USB cable to connect Canon 5D Mark II to iMac/MacBook Pro in order to keep the whole information of your footages. Click the Add button to upload .mov files from camcorder to Mac application.

Tip: The function"Merge into one" can combine some clips together without quality loss.

Step 2: Select Apple ProRes 422(*.mov) as output format for FCP X.
Please click on the dropdown menu of Format , and then follow Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422(*.mov) as the output format.

Step 3: Choose the proper parameters in Settings you want.
Click Settings button, then you will enter the following interface, on which you are allowed to customize size, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, and audio channel, etc.

Tip: Video Size: 1920*1080 & Frame Rate:30fps(NTSC) or 25fps(PAL)

Step 4: Click the Arrow button on the main interference to start conversion.
When the conversion is finished, you can click Open button to get the final output files for FCP X, now you can easily edit Canon 5D Mark III HD recordings with FCP X.
