Final Cut Pro 6 Video Tutorial – Editing Basics 09: Importing Video (6) – MP4






Over the next several days, we are going to release several or up to a dozen video tutorials for Apple’s Final Cut Pro 6. This series is intended for those who have just started using Final Cut Pro 6 without prior experience in digital video editing and need some guidance. We, MacHouse, edit more than 200 videos each year, using Apple Final Cut Pro. So we can help you.

This Final Cut Pro 6 video tutorial series is for offline editing. That is, we assume that all video clips are stored on a hard disk drive. So we don’t import videos from video cameras.

The most popular multimedia container for Mac is MOV. There are other media containers. One another popular video container is AVI. WMV is another one, which we covered in the last tutorial.

MP4 is also a multimedia format. This video container is exclusively supported by Apple, Inc. MP4 can contain MPEG-4-compressed (Part 2, Part 10) video and MPEG-4-compresed audio (AAC, Apple Lossless…).

In the 9th tutorial of the Final Cut Pro 6 Editing Basics video tutorials, we are going to deal with another video format. This time, it’s MP4. We are going to import an MP4-formatted video file to Final Cut Pro.

The original video comes from Internet Archive. The producer of this movie is shown as tertone prod. The rights of use is defined by Creative Commons and set to ‘No Rights Reserved.’
