“I am having trouble editing my Canon EOS-1D X Mark II 4K MOV files in FCP 7. I shot it on my camera. I am converting but it converts all pixilated. I haven’t had trouble transcoding before in 1080P but this is the first time I’ve tried 4K and it doesn’t look good at all. I am worried because this footage is from a fairly large budget music clip and editing in Final Cut Pro needs to be started immediately. – Bruce Robb
