  • You are seriously LOST!  FCP is an Apple product supported by Apple:
    http://www.apple.com/finalcutpro/
      According to the information poated on the Apple website @
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/final-cut-pro/id424389933?mt=12 FCP is an Apple OS only application.  There is no Windows 7 version.

    This is a Microsoft forum and FCP is not a Microsoft product.

  • What do you not understand about this not being an Apple forum?

    This is a Microsoft Windows 7 forum for the discussion of issues directly related to Microsoft Windows 7.

    Anything and everything you post here about Apple products is a total waste of time because it is totally irrelevent!!

  • MP4 is a final delivery lossy video format which is not suitable for editing in non-destructive video editing software like Final Cut Pro.

    Apple ProRes is an ideal format for Final Cut Pro.

    I use iDealshare VideoGo which can easily convert all kinds of MP4 videos to FCP, FCE supported Apple ProRes, MOV or DV.

    Besides converting MP4 to FCP format, iDealshare VideoGo also helps to convert other video formats like MOV, WMV, AVI, MKV, VOB, AVCHD, MXF, MOD, TOD, RMVB, 3GP, FLV, ASF, SWF and etc to Final Cut Pro supported video format.

  • iTunes movies are protected with <g class="gr_ gr_13 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" data-gr-id="13" id="13">DRm</g> protection. In order to edit iTunes movies on final cut pro, you need to get rid of the DRM and then convert the video formats. I have done that before. it is easy as long as you have the iTunes video converter.
