YI 4K Action Camera reaches new heights. Packing professional performance into a compact, streamlined body, the black YI 4K Action Camera makes capturing all of your adventures at resolutions up to UHD 4K fast, fun, and easy. And if you plan to get the YI 4K camera, you’d better read on to learn YI 4K to FCP workflow, which ensures you handle YI 4K recordings in Final Cut Pro simply and smoothly.

From its specs, we know YI 4K Action Camera can capture 4K videos in MP4 format with H.264 codec. But the problem is, H.264 MP4 file format from YI 4K is beyond the compatibility of Final Cut Pro(FCP X, FCP 7/6). Something else, FCP X can (usually) handle 4K files without much problem, but it is extremely hardware intensive. In most cases, editing 4K in FCP is very taxing on your computer. In order to work YI 4K footage in FCP X/7/6 smoothly, a better way is to transcode YI 4K video to a more editable codec and 1080p would be the best settings. The following paragraphs show you how to edit YI 4K MP4 files with FCP X/7/6 without bogging down your computer.

Well, with the help of UFUWare Video Converter for Mac, the process is surprisingly easy and can be done.
