How can I edit Olympus E-P2 AVI video in FCP smoothly? With ProRes?
Summary: Follow the guide below you will get the easy way to transcode Olympus E-P2 AVI to Prores .MOV for editing in FCP
Olympus has announced the E-P2 just five months after the launch of its first Micro Four-Thirds camera, the E-P1. It's a minor upgrade with the addition of a port for a new high resolution electronic viewfinder (or external microphone), two new Art filters and a pearlescent black finish.
The E-P2 manual movie mode (30fps and 720p) allows for independent control of aperture and shutter for expanded creative control. This fine control allows you to express your vision exactly how you want in your HD videos. Switch to shooting with Art Filters in Movie Mode for additional creative effects.
If you have got the E-P2 and often use it to record 1080P video, you may have the need to edit E-P2 AVI in Final Cut Pro on Mac.
