‘You know, it is cool that Olympus Stylus SH-2 is equipped with Advanced Movie Modes for powerful video recording functions, including Full HD 1080p captured at up to 60 frames per second for smooth motion playback of fast action footage. I always use it to record some exciting moments in order to share them online with many net friends. Unfortunately, it would be a little hard for us to edit them in FCP X due to the limited video codec you know.’

I have met the similar questions before, I shot the recordings also encoded by MOV from my Nikon D5500, while for editing D5500 MOV in FCP X, something wrong happened as usual. In this case, we need a professional FCP X video encoder to work this job well. The Stylus SH-2 records video files in H.264 codec, which is a codec suitable for capture and delivery, but not quite proper for editing. Seeking for a faster and easier way to remove the troubles? Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac could be such a nice one for us to convert the Olympus Stylus SH-2 1080 60p MOV to ProRes MOV for FCP X. Let’s enjoy more details below:
