If you have some 4K files from Sony F5, F55, AX1, X1000V, etc and import these Sony 4K to Final Cut Pro for making a home movie, it probably turned out to be a huge letdown.

Q: “I have some Sony 4K movies, and when I import them to Final Cut Pro(FCP 7), it does not display. Any solution will be appreciated.”

As far as I know until FCPX 10.1 can supports 4K; while, FCPX 10.0.9 and older version including Final Cut Pro 6/7 still use 1080p as primary delivery format and will continue to do so for a long time. If you want to have a smooth 4K video and FCP workflow, you are advised to convert Sony 4K video to ProRes for further editing in FCP 6/7/X.

First all of, get a 4K video converter and transcode 4K files to ProRes for Final Cut Pro(1080p is the optimal setting), which will save you both time and trouble, and all you need is to drag the result videos for prompt editing. For this purpose, this article will show you how to convert SONY 4K to ProRes MOV on Mac(Yosemite, Mavericks, Mountain Lion) in detail.
