Canon announced the EOS-1D C - a digital SLR camera targeting the motion picture, television and high-resolution production industries. The highlight? It supports in-camera 4K (4,096 x 2,160) video recording with 4:2:2 colour sampling. This 4K video is recorded using 8-bit Motion JPEG compression at 24p, and Full HD (1920 x 1080) video capture is available at frame rates up to 1080/60p.
I am a mac user , and I like editing video files shot by HD camcorders in Final Cut Pro. FCP is a powerful video editing software, it provides non-linear, non-destructive editing of any QuickTime compatible video format including DV, HDV, P2 MXF (DVCProHD), XDCAM, 2K, film formats. However , it doesn't allow us to import the Canon EOS 1D C H.264 MOV files if we want to edit Canon EOS-1D C recording 1080P video on FCP as it can't support Canon EOS-1D C H.264 MOV footages well.
Since the most compatible video codec with FCP is Apple ProRes 422(*.mov) , so we need to use a practical Mac MOV to FCP converter to convert Canon EOS 1D-C 60p/50p H.264 MOV to Apple ProRes ,then these Full HD MOV files supported by FCP will be easily achieved.
