Summary: Shoot some 4K videos with Blackmagic? The files are too large and it takes a long time for operating. Here, this article will tell you how to downscale Blackmagic 4K ProRes to 1080p ProRes for FCP 7/X editing.

blackmagic Downscale Blackmagic 4K ProRes to 1080p ProRes for FCP 7/X Editing

I have been using the Blackmagic USRA EF camera for about 3 months now. Overall this camera is good for the money. Internally, URSA can record in the two formats. The first is 12-bit CinemaDNG RAW, the second is Apple ProRes 422 (HQ), a debayered codec for easier playback and editing in a wide range of video editing applications. But I’m having trouble figuring out how to import Blackmagic URSA 4K to Final Cut Pro with a smooth workflow.

Learn from Apple official site, I got know that FCP X 10.1 can support editing and monitoring 4K video, including 4K ProRes, Sony XAVC and REDCODE RAW. But the point here is, FCP old version and FCP 7 still uses 1080p as primary delivery format and will continue to do so for a long time. So how to import and edit Blackmagic URSA 4K clips in FCP 7/X (in old version) smoothly? Searching further online, I was advised to convert and downscale 4K to 1080p from Blackmagic for Final Cut Pro before editing.

Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac is highly recommended here. Developed with the most advanced converting technology, it fully supports input and output videos at up to 4K resolution.
