File Conversion / Dealing with Non-supported Codecs in FCPX
on Apr 3, 2018 at 1:32:59 am

I've recently been given a bunch of AVI files that were created on a PC using either Huffyuv or Lagarith lossless codecs. On a PC the files play fine, but If I try to open on my mac I get sound but no picture and FCPX will not import the file.

I did try converting with handbrake and it made an mpeg file that played back in quicktime, however I need to do some editing and processing so I prefer uncompressed lossless files to work with in FCP.

Does anyone have experience doing conversions of these to a format acceptable for FCP? Wondering what software I might be able to use for the conversion and to what format I should convert.

Thanks in advance!

If you have ffmpeg you can transcode from the Huffyuv and Lagarith codecs to the v210 uncompressed codec in a QuickTime wrapper, eg:
ffmpeg -i input -c:v v210 -c:a copy output.

Edited to add ".mov"
ffmpeg -i input -c:v v210 -c:a copy output.mov

Great so v210 uncompressed should be good for editing in FCP as well as for archiving then. Sounds perfect, I'll give it a shot. Thank you!
