Click the “Convert” icon under the preview window, and the Mac Video to ProRes Converter will start transcoding Canon XA25 1080p 50p/60p MTS and MP4 files to Prores MOV for FCP(X) on Mac.

1. If you are also a FCP X user, before you try to do the conversion, don’t forget to make sure that you have installed the Apple ProRes Codec manually since the FCP X asks users to install it by themselves.
