Why I can’t import my Samsung NX1 H.265 footage to FCP X for best editing? Due to my work needs, I record some H.265 files by using Samsung NX1, and I need to add some subtitles into those NX1 H.265 videos, so I decided to import them into FCP X to do some change. However, I found I can’t edit Samsung NX1 H.265 footage smoothly in FCP X. I want to know what’s wrong with it? How can I solve the problems, I was so worried, help me, very thanks!
Samsung has been pretty inventive in the digital camera world. It was the first to offer an really extensive Wi-Fi system (which continues to this day), Android-based cameras (though Nikon launched a model at about the same time), and arguably the first dedicated ‘selfie cams’ with its DualView models. With 4K video, 15fps burst shooting, and class-leading autofocus tracking and speed, the NX1 is not just a respectable entry into the high-end mirrorless camera segment – it may be the camera to beat.The Samsung NX1 is not just the best camera Samsung has ever produced, it’s one of the best cameras you can buy in this price range.
High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), also known as H.265, is a new video compression standard, developed by the Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding (JCT-VC). HEVC was developed with the goal of providing twice the compression efficiency of the previous standard, H.264 / AVC. However, smoothly import H.265 videos into FCP X for editing is impossible, because FCP X doesn’t support editing H.265 codec files. As we know, from the official website, the best supported format for FCP X is Apple ProRes. To solve those problems, the quick workaround is to encode Samsung NX1 H.265 footage to FPC X natively supported formats via a H.265 Video Converter. Acrok Video Converter is highly recommended to you. Along with some help from the H.265 Video Converter, it can be done effortlessly.
