Enable WMV medias work with Final Cut Pro smoothly
Summary: In this article, you're learnt how to easily convert WMV to ProRes, so that you are able to edit WMV video files with Final Cut Pro X/7/6 natively on Mac.
WMV (Windows Media Video) is a compressed video format developed by Microsoft and widely used in Windows (Windows 10 compatible). While the .wmv format is perfect for Windows Movie Maker, it's just inevitable to attempt employing WMV video files in other video editing software such as Final Cut Pro. However, since .wmv videos are native to Windows only, FCP, a wonderful Mac video editing tool, seems to be unfriendly with them.
On this occasion, if you are stick to importing WMV video files into Final Cut Pro for further editing, you'd better convert WMV to ProRes codec, which ensures the maximum editing efficiency and quality when working with FCP 6, FCP 7 or FCP X. To be frankly with you, it's not as hard as you imagine as long as you have a common WMV to FCP converter like Borosoft Video Converter for Mac at hand.
Above all, it is a specially designed for Mac users to convert WMV as well as other popular video formats including MKV, MTS, FLV, MOV, MP4... to FCP preferred video format, with just a few clicks while retaining its excellent quality. Please keep in mind, more than FCP, there are existing many other export options available like Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Apple TV, iPhone, Samsung Tab... to meet your different demands.
