DSLR Best Conversions for Final Cut Pro X

->> Hey everyone, I know we'd prefer to discuss shooting the Super Bowl for free and getting credentials for shooting Blanco's dog, but I have a conversion question.

~

I finally upgrade my laptop and got FCP and want to get the best quality out of my Nikon D600 video.

In FCE, I was using Streamclip to convert the RAW footage to Apple Intermediate Codec and then editing, now that I have 16gb of RAM and more options, what is the best video conversions to import into FCP?

Thanks in advance.

~ Nic

->> Just import directly into FCP. I think the early version of Final Cut Pro X didn't like the native Nikon video files, but now it does.

->> For previous versions of FCP, ProRes was the way to go. One of the big selling points of FCPX is the ability to handle multiple formats with no need to convert.

->> Don't use AIC. Ever. That is the worst (from a proprietary standpoint) codec that Apple ever foisted on the public. Not only is it Mac only, it didn't even work with FCP, Apples own sister product. Essentially preventing amateur filmmakers from handing off products to a pro for finishing. Horrible.

ProRes (if staying on Apple from end to end in post, or Avid's DNxHD if there might be potential to go to PCs or Unix based editors or color suites.

I wonder if FCPx finally fixes the color/gamma bug from FCP1-7.
