This tutorial shows how to convert (Halloween) Blu-Ray movies to Apple ProRes 422 MOV for editing on Final Cut Pro via a top Blu-Ray to FCP Converter for Mac.
Do you, like me, gather many Blu-ray movies and would like to make your own version with the help of Final Cut Pro so that you could share with family members and friends on the coming Halloween? You may wonder how to make it work since Final Cut Pro only accepts DV, HDV, P2 MXF (DVCProHD), XDCAM, and 2K film formats, and the Blu-ray compatibility is not available so far.
