Capturing the video on the camera is just the first step. Once you have filmed everything, you will probably want to edit it before sharing with others. If you’ve tried to put videos taken with iPhone into FCP for editing, sometimes you will find the video clips will not appear. However, there is an easy way to make iPhone 7 videos compatible with FCP. You just need to use a third-party program to make that happen.

As is known, the iPhones (including iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 4S, etc.) record videos in .mov and .mp4 format.
