Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.
You have to convert them to MOV (Quicktime) to import them to FCPX.
You can use MPEG Stream Clip --> http://www.squared5.com/
or Handbrak ---> https://handbrake.fr/
There are also many paid premium converters out there like iSkysoft Converter, ImToo Converter etc. Try the above ones and let me know if it doesn't work.
Those are free apps and limited in functionality. Can you try iSkysoft converter ? Get it from here --> http://www.iskysoft.com/video-converter-mac.html
Use the trial version. Are you able to convert with it ?
I can't see the video. Can I connect to your Mac and take a look ?
Don't buy it yet. You have to select correct format otherwise the output will be distorted. I will download it on my Mac and let you know the correct settings.
I was able to convert the video using iSkysoft in color. Can you try again please ?
Open iSkysoft. Drag your MP4 video to it. At the bottom, select Editing. Select FCP X and convert. Let me know the results please
Seems correct. Can you hit Convert and see what happens ?
The only difference is mine is showing a thumbnail at top left.
Can you try this converter ? http://www.imtoo.com/video-converter-mac.html
Can you send me a sample video clip that you are having issues with, so I will check it on my Mac ?
Sorry for the delay. You can upload the file to www.wikisend.com
Then send me the link or File ID you get after uploading it
I will check and let you know
I downloaded it, but can't play it on my Mac and PC. From where did you get these videos ?
