How can I edit Leica Q 1080P MP4 video in Final Cut Pro? Last month, my foreign friends come to visit my family, I took them to play the city’s famous tourist attractions, I borrowed a Leica Q from my best friend for out viewfinder with colleague, to commemorate those unforgettable moments, I use Leica Q shoot some 1080p MP4 videos. Recently, I want to edit these MP4 files in FCP for further editing then share with my friends, but I found it is a trouble for me when I try to import my MP4 footage into FCP and I can’t edit MP4 recordings in FCP 7 smoothly. So who can help me to solve these problems?

Leica Camera AG launched a new feature classic focal length fixed focus lens, and a full-frame sensor with high sensitivity, high-speed compact digital camera Q series cameras on June 10, 2015.

Many professional photographers are expected to have this excellent camera, and they prefer to edit the HD videos in FCP (FCP X, FCP 7, FCP 6).

However, to our regrettable, editing Leica Q MP4 files in FCP directly is difficult to achieve currently, because FCP can’t recognize the AVCHD recordings from Leica Q. From FCP Official website, we can know FCP X is imcompatible with AVCHD format from Leica Q still far. That’s why Leica Q fails to import 1080P AVCHD files to FCP. So to ensure a smooth workflow, you need to transcode Leica Q 1080P MPEG-4 footage to FCP natively support codec. It is recommended Apple ProRes (422/4444) video as the best FCP editing format.
