Which video formats does FCP accept?
on Jul 29, 2011 at 12:41:46 am

So I've looked up several posts, and the most popular response is to look it up in the Final Cut Pro menu.
The problem is that I don't have FCP, but I'm sending my file to someone who does.
I would really appreciate your help.

Thanks,

Michael

ProRes 422
ProRes LT
ProRes HQ
ProRes 4444
DVCPRO HD
HDV
XDCAM HD
XDCAM EX

The problem with the above formats is that you can only encode to them if you have FCP. Now...

Uncompressed 8-bit (SD and HD)
Uncompressed 10-bit (SD and HD)
DV/NTSC
DV50 (also called DVCPRO 50)
IMX NTSC
OFFLINE RT (low quality offline codec)
Apple Intermediate Codec.

What is this file you have? Where does it originate from? What do you have at your disposal to do the conversion? MPEG STREAMCLIP is a good option.

So I use Adobe Premier Pro CS5 to compile the JPEG images I rendered on Maya 2010.
Thanks for help

[Michael Bale] "So I use Adobe Premier Pro CS5 to compile the JPEG images I rendered on Maya 2010."

That's probably unnecessary.

Quicktime Pro, which comes with FCP, can open image sequences and export a Quicktime movie in the appropriate frame rate. A second way to skin this cat: FCP itself can import image sequences.

I would have made a PNG image sequence instead of a JPEG sequence, but that's just me.
