Nikon D7000 vs settings for Final Cut Pro
on Oct 24, 2011 at 12:15:15 am

I just bought a Nikon 7000 camera and completed a video shoot with the same camera. It is now time to get editing, but I am not sure as to what settings to use in Final Cut Pro? I have tried HDV-1080p25, which seems to be good until you playback the timeline and the indicator says "Dropped frame". I then I changed the settings to DV NTSC 48 kHz - 24 and lost the talent in the picture because it wasn't 16:9 anymore. Not sure what to do? Can anyone advise me how to set the correct settings for this camera. Thanks

Convert the footage to ProRes 422...1920x1080. Then use those sequence settings. DO NOT edit the native footage that comes from the camera. FCP will choke on it.

Use Compressor or MPEG Streamclip to convert to ProRes.

Ok, I did what you said, but now I am left with a choice of 1920x1080 (16:9) or 1920x1080 (unscaled). What is the difference? Both options are available undder "Apple ProRes 422.
