"I am a professional photographer so can talk about f/stops and shutter speeds and ISO all day long but Video Codec and fps are all something very new. Please excuse my novice status but I would like help in preparing my first big video project shoot on a Nikon D7000. I would like to use the camera's highest setting which is: Full HD 1,920 x 1,080 pixel 24p (23.976 fps). How would I prepare my files before importing them into Final Cut? I am having trouble deciphering the discussions. Some say just import the file right from my card reader and others say the file needs to be converted from the native H.264 to Apple ProRes."
