Why downconvert 4K MXF to ProRes 1080P?
4K is more and more popular, as 1080P is great for web video but not for traditional moviemaking. But it requires a massive amount of GPU processing to handle 4K Raw files.Even though FCPX can handle 4K content (even 4K HFR up to 60P), it only works well as long as your machine is not doing the heavy lifting. So when you edit C500 4K Raw in FCPX, most of the time it is very taxing on your Mac. In order to smoothly edit 4K MXF files in FCP, you'd better downconvert the 4K MXF video to Apple ProRes 1080P.
