Aunsoft Video Converter: converting Canon 7D H.264 to ProRes FCP 7

KDE - Jan 13 2014
not answered
Question:In order to edit smoothly in FCP 7, I need to convert my Canon 7D footage-which renders to disk as H.264 into, supposedly, Pro Res. Every time I do this however my 720P file size increases 3 times as large. I can't do that and I don't see how having gigantic files like that is going to make my workflow any better. So I need a workable solution to convert Canon clips 720p H.264 to ProRes.

Some guy suggests me Adobe Premier CS6 for editing natively. Some guy tells me FCP X is superior for a nice built in features and transitions and templates that CS6 just lacks. But X has a learning curve. And it requires certain hardware that I lack. CS6 also requires hefty processor cards too for much of its performance. So another one tell me use ProRes LT for FCP 7 for it takes less work for the CPU to process and play my ProRes video than to play the H.264s. However, I’m not satisfied with the quality of LT and I'm prefer to ProRes 422 or 422 HQ. Finally, I turn to Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac. It's really excellent. And it successfully transcode 59.94fps H.264 into ProRes with the original size and the video quality is almost the same with the original one. Besides, it is versatile, which can also convert H.264 or other video formats to Avid MOV, QuickTime MOV, AIC MOV, etc.

Below is a step-to-step tutorial of converting Canon 7D video clips H.264 to FCP7 without size enlargement. Hope it is also helpful for you.

Step 1: Import

Click "add video" or "add folder" to load 720p 59.94fps H.264 clips. You can also directly drag files to the program. The program supports batch conversion and allows you capture images.

Step 2: Select export format

Click the "format" and choose the "Final Cut Pro -> Apple ProRes 422 HQ (*.mov)" ProRes 422 HQ is recommended here for offering even greater headroom to preserve the quality of even the most demanding.

Step 3: Choose file size for output file

Click the "Settings" button to set file size; you can set it as original or 720P so that the output ProRes MOV will keep the same size and quality. Here your can also adjust audio and video bitrates, encode, frame rate, resolution, aspect ratio, sample rate, audio channels, etc.

Step 4: Conversion

Click "Conversion" icon and the import all Canon 7D video content H.264 to FCP will run at ultrafast speed. With just a click on "Open output folder", you can locate the export ProRes MOV easily.

Tip: Import 720p 59.94fps H.264 MOV to FCP 7

To import the transcoded files into Final Cut Pro 7, simply navigate to File > Import > Files and select the converted clips. Alternately you can simply drag and drop the files into your "Bin." Note that this process using Compresor replaces the need to "Log and Transfer" as you would with typical camcorders.

This conversion program can be easily found via Google with keywords "Aunsoft Video Converter Mac".
