These are the specs on a video file on my computer recorded off of a JVC GY-HM 100U. I can't get it to import into FCPX, and it wont' import into Compressor.


What is apple's official stance on what to do with these files?


What is the easiest way to get this into FCPX? Is there any way of doing this without having to use a third party program? I find it insane that a professional editing system such as FCPX and Compressor would not be enough to handle a file as common as an MP4.


(ps i'm well aware that the JVC camera is capable of recording the file as a .MOV, but i wasn't the one who shot the footage).
