  1. Thanks for this really informative FCPX video Chris!
    I’m a complete newb at this video editing game and am wondering if you might advise as to how I might transcode H.265 footage to Apple ProRes 422 so I can edit the footage? I’m using a 2015 MacBook Pro 15″ Retina running OS 19.12.6 (Sierra). H.265 footage was shot on a Samsung NX1.
    Thanks for your advice!
