MVI stands for Musical Video Interactive, a DVD-based means of packing audio, video and interactive visual content (for example lyrics) onto one disk. The first commercial disc released with this technology was Snakes & Arrows by Rush on May 15, 2007.The audio content is provided in multiple formats, including a high-definition version (a minimum of 24-bit at 48kHz sampling) and an MP3 version for copying to portable audio players. The video content is compatible with DVD video, and can also optionally include high-definition video. Maybe you have got some MVI videos and wanted to import MVI to FCP X/7/6 for editing on Mac, since the MVI video codec is not well supported by FCP X/7/6, the best way to edit MVI in FCP X/7/6 on Mac is to convert MVI to Apple ProRes 422 codec.
Apple ProRes 422 is a standard-definition and high-definition lossy video compression format developed by Apple Inc. for use in post production. It was introduced in 2007 with Final Cut Studio 2 and is comparable to Avid’s DNxHD codec which has the same purpose and uses similar bit rates. Both are DCT basedintra-frame-only codecs, and are therefore simpler to decode than distribution oriented formats like H.264. FCP 6/7, FCP X is Mac based editing software which supports transcoding MVI videos to Apple ProRes for further editing.
