H.264 to ProRes Conversion-Convert/Edit Nikon D7000 H.264 recordings to Final Cut Pro X( FCP X) on Mac

Nikon D7000 captures Full HD 1080p at 24fps with support for autofocus while filming, all full 1080p HD videos are recorded in MOV format, which is perfect for viewing but not supported by FCP X. As we all know, the ideal acceptable format for Final Cut Pro X is Apple ProRes 422 Codec(*.mov), so the best solution is to transcode our H.264 mov video clips to ProRes, which will simply make our footages editable and ready for Final Cut.

There are multiple formats of the Apple ProRes 422 family. They range from Low, Medium, and High - higher bitrates constitute for larger file sizes. For Final Cut Pro X, "ProRes 422 LT" or "ProRes 422" is the most appropriate setting for the D7000 as the camera records at 25 mb/s. Choosing anything higher will give unecessary large file sizes. OK, what's the best program to realize it?
