“Hello, recently I bought the Nikon DSLR D850 and have used it recorded some 4K UHD videos and 1080p MOV videos, the image quality is very excellent. Today I need to import Nikon D850 UHD 4K MOV videos to FCP and edit the footages with FCP, but after I loaded the 4K MOV videos, I find the Final Cut Pro can’t edit Nikon D850 files smoothly, what’s the reason? Are Nikon D850 4K videos not well supported by FCP? Any suggestion is appreciated, thanks!”
