Best Camera 2016: Edit Panasonic Lumix LX100(4/18) MP4 Files in FCP X

The black Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX100 Digital Camera is an advanced point-and-shoot with manual controls designed to enable and inspire creativity. It features a large multi-aspect 16.8MP 4/3″ MOS sensor to produce 12.8MP still images (4:3) and 4K Ultra HD video at 30 and 24 fps. You also have the ability to extract high-resolution 8MP images from the 4K video, letting you capture entire scenes without missing a shot.

Take advantage of 4K Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 video recording at 30 or 24 fps in MP4 format. 4K video can be recorded for up to 15 minutes, and requires an SD card rated at UHS-I Speed Class 3. The camera also records Full HD 1080p video at 60 or 30 fps in MP4 or AVCHD formats.

As you see, the Panasonic DMC-LX100 gains great respect for its 4K ability- it can record 4K videos in MP4. While, you will find it’s a painful experience to import and edit Panasonic LX100 4K in FCP. Although FCP X supports 4K, while most editing programs including Final Cut Pro 6/7 still use 1080p as primary delivery format and will continue to do so for a long time.

In order to convert the 4K MP4/AVCHD taken with Panasonic LX100 to Apple ProRes codec, you’ll need Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac(read the review), a professional high-definition video converter that converts Panasonic DMC-LX100 footage as well as HD videos of other various formats to editable and playable video and audio formats. You may download a trial of the software to try it out.
