Most of you love to use your Android to shoot videos and like to edit them before uploading to YouTube or posting them on Facebook. If you use Final Cut Pro 7, FCP 6 or FCP X to edit the Android videos, you will always have render problems whenever you import them. So what's the available workaround to fix the Android videos and FCP incompatibility issues? Check out the solution here.
Basically the problem is that the native record format that the Android tablet or smartphone uses isn't a codec that plays well together with FCP. Codecs are a complicated subject, and FCP tries to be helpful by automatically changing the sequence settings to match the clip. But when it comes to the Android, things don't work out so well. To solve this dilemma, you need to take a little up front time and set up a workflow that will convert your Android video into a format that FCP likes.
