How to import and edit Canon VIXIA GX10 4K video in FCP X/7/6?
Camping in the mountain is great fun. I had a lot of fun with my friends last week. We sang, danced, drank beer, and lived in the mountains. Although the tent is not as comfortable as a bed, it is an unforgettable night. I'm very glad that I took this interesting experience with my Canon VIXIA GX10 camera. But I can't edit the 4K MP4 videos in FCP X smoothly. What should I do?
Canon has made some creative decisions with the consumer VIXIA line to maintain relevance in a difficult camcorder market. The VIXIA GX10 is Canon's first 4K UHD consumer camcorder. Featuring a 1.0-inch 4K UHD CMOS image sensor and dual DIGIC DV 6 Image Processors, the VIXIA GX10 records in MP4 format to dual SD card slots.
