How to Import 4K into FCPX?

Steven P. Denny

Recommended Posts

I have some b-roll that was recorded in 4K on a micro SD Card. It was produced from the Mavic Pro drone camera.


When I try to ingest it to my FCPX, I get the alert "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer" with options to "ignore", "eject" and "initialize". I haven't hit the initialize tab for fear of it wiping the card clean. The other two options provide no solution.


How can I convert this footage to be imported into my FCPX workflow for edit?


In the future, should I make sure the client records in 1080p setting?


I hope someone can assist me on this matter.


Thank you.
