This is a total newbie question but I don't have alot of experience with transcoding footage. I have a D7000 and I want to make the footage usable in Final Cut Pro. I have Compressor; what do I need to do to get this into Pro Res format, what settings should I use to get it into Final Cut so its looks best?
ADVANCED FORMAT CONVERSIONS...ProRes for Progressive. But skip the HIGH QUALITY setting, that's for 10-bit formats...your footage is 8-bit. It will still convert it to 10-bit ProRes, but have a smaller file size. HQ is meant for other formats.
