“Final Cut Pro won’t Open Fujifilm X-H2S 6.2K MOV files”- such kind of things might happen to almost every Final Cut Pro user who wants to import MOV to FCP for editing. In this article, we will offer solutions to you.
The Fujifilm X-H2S is an incredibly powerful mirrorless camera for sports and action shooters who shoot lots of video. We can record MPEG-4, H.264, H.265 videos with Fujifilm X-H2S. The camera creates video files in the internationally standardized MOV, wrapping video and audio with metadata in a single file that maintains access to critical information throughout the production process. The video Internal 4:2:2 10-bit recording is possible in both DCI/UHD 4K at up to 120p and Full HD at up to 240p as well as an open-gate 3:2 6.2K setting that’s suitable for anamorphic applications.
Can we import and edit Fujifilm X-H2S 6.2K and 4K MOV files in Final Cut Pro smoothly? As you know, the native import of some flavors of MOV wasn’t supported until Final Cut Pro 10.6.3. In addition, based on our testing, some MOV files will import into Final Cut Pro without QuickTime perfectly, whereas other MOV files absolutely require QuickTime. And some MOV recordings from cameras like Fujifilm X-H2S, DJI Mavic 3, Olympus OM-1 also can’t supported by Final Cut Pro natively. The reason of the error mostly lays in the video format codec parameters. Not all MOV files are supported by Final Cut Pro, but some special .mov, such as .mov (H.265 video codec, Linear PCM audio codec) videos.
The low configuration of the computer or the low version of the Final Cut Pro may prevent you from importing Fujifilm X-H2S 6.2K MOV videos into the editing software.
Since it’s the codec problem, you can try to install some codecs. Whereas, it’s not easy to install just proper codecs you need, all kinds of components would be installed blindly in usual, and many of which are not compatible with each other. To get rid of the issue, converting Fujifilm X-H2S MOV to Final Cut Pro compatible video like Apple ProRes MOV is an alternative solution – it seems to be much easier and more effective.
