MPG/MPEG to FCE-Import MPEG-1, MPEG-2 into Final Cut Express

Editing MPG files on Final Cut Express on Mac? MPG to Final Cut Express Video Converter for Mac can help you convert MPG/MPEG to FCE on Mac OS X (Yosemite).

The .mpg format is used for any video or MPEG animation using the MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 codec, both of which were designed for lossy compression of audio and video. The .mpg files encoded using the MPEG-1 codec have been around for quite a long time, as the codec had been designed to compress raw digital video, typically of VHS quality and audio of CD quality to about 1.5 million bits per second. The MPEG-2 codec, on the other hand, is inclined on handling interlaced images with bit rates of more than four million bits per second. It has been used for digital television broadcasting and DVDs. This brought the release of MPEG-2 players which are also capable of playing media encoded using the MPEG-1. This is the reason why any DVD player that you may have at home can play your VCDs just as it would flawlessly play your DVDs.

Final Cut Express is a flexible video editing tool; when combined with a Macintosh computer and FireWire, Final Cut Express can be used to capture footage from nearly any DV camcorder. Final Cut Express is also a standard QuickTime application, so you can import and export a wide variety of video, audio, graphics, and animation file types. But it also has the video format limitation: for instant, MPG/MPEG is not supported by Final Cut Express.
