Sony F65 4K in Final Cut-Editing Sony F65 4K/HD recording with FCP 7/X on Mac (Yosemite)

Trying to pull in footage shot with a Sony F65 (4k, mxf) and get ingest errors/failure with both Final Cut Pro 7 and FCP X. Perhaps there is some transcode step I am missing? No worries, here show you the best solution to importing Sony F65 4K MXF footage into Final Cut Pro 7/X on Mac OS X (Yosemite included).

The F65 is a top-end motion picture camera. It features a true step-change in sensor technology, using a 20 Mega pixel 8K CMOS sensor. The F65 runs up to 120Fps, creates HD/2K or genuine 4K resolution images with a huge colour gamut, outstanding dynamic range, and high sensitivity. With the SKC-4065 live camera adaptor, the F65 integrates seamlessly into the 4K live production environment, offering enhanced 4K, high quality HD cut-out and 2x High Frame Rate (HFR) 4K/HD recording capabilities.

FCP X is said to have the ability to tackle the 4K footage; however, this well-known editor fails to work well with the 4K MXF Raw footage as expected. The reason is that 4K Raw footage is usually in large size which needs a computer equipped with high quality configurations, or, the process will be time and processor-heavy, making the conversion fairly taxing. Moreover, MXF itself is not an ideal video format for FCP to afford. So, what's the solutions ? Any way to import Sony F65 4K videos to FCP editing?

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.
