Summary: Failed to import DivX encoded files to Final Cut Pro for smooth editing? Fortunately, there is an easy way to fix the issue. Let's find it out here.
I've got an .avi files in DIVX format. What do I need to edit this DivX video in Final Cut Pro directly? Whenever I've tried to do this kind of thing before (using Flip4Mac as I remember) I've run into issues, for example FCP requiring me to render sound for the clips I drop into the timeline. I've already tried Flip4Mac, Perian and the regular DIVX codec and although some will allow me to play the movies with sound in QuickTime Player, none of them so far will allow Final Cut Pro to recognize the DivX files. The only workable way would be to convert DivX to ProRes, which is the best codec with best results when working with Final Cut Pro.
The quick and effective way I’ve worked out is to use the easy-to-use yet professional app Brorosft Video Converter for Mac which can be used as a DivX to Final Cut Pro Converter under OS X Leopard (10.5), Snow Leopard (10.6), Lion (10.7), Mountain Lion (10.8), Mavericks (10.9). With it, you can effortlessly transcode 720p/1080p DivX files to Apple ProRes video for FCP 6/7 and Final Cut Pro X, and it works well and converts flawlessly. Meanwhile, the Mac Video Conversion tool can create files compatible with various non-linear editing systems like Avid Media Composer, FCE, iMovie, Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Premiere Elements, etc.
