Tips on how to import video into final cut pro:
As a professional non-linear editing software application, Final Cut Pro is the first choice of professional editors. Whether you're working solo or collaborating with a team, Final Cut Pro gives you more creative options and technical control.
In Final Cut Pro 7 we choose File>Log and Transfer to ingest/load HD footage from a digital camcorder. In Final Cut Pro X the thing is different, because there’s no Log and Transfer option. To load a tapeless recording media from camcorder, you need to follow File>Import From Camera… instead. Apple has added a page for user to check whether their cameras are supported by FCP X, which is helpful.
Though Final Cut Pro is able to import and edit any QuickTime compatible video format, camera-native formats, even Apple ProRes, there is still limitation in importing AVI, WMV, MP4, YouTube video to Final Cut Express/Pro, let alone to edit those kind of video formats.
