Does Nikon D7000 MOV workable in FCP 6?


MOV format with Prores codec is FCP 6preferred video. So a program which has prores codec output is greatly helpful.As far as I know, two apps can export Prores codec video. One is Clipwrap andanother is Video Converter released by Pavtube. Clipwrap can not achieve yourtask because it only supports AVCHD videos. So please test Pavtube VideoConverter to check if it is helpful. It provides free trial version in Pavtubesite.http://www.pavtube.com/video-converter-mac/
