Recently switched to Mac. Is it possible to fanedit?

Title says it all. I’m not even sure where to start. I’ve been doing this for years on a windows pc but without virtualdub and eac3to.exe I’m kinda lost on how to get a .mkv into a working file format for Final Cut Pro. Is it possible or should I just install a windows VM and convert with that?

Thanks,

Use ffmpeg to change the container. You can install it with your favorite package manager or direct from their website, and then just do

ffmpeg -I path/to/input.mkv -c:v copy -c:a copy path/to/output.mov

If the streams are compatible, and they probably are, your QuickTime MOV file should import cleanly into FCPX.
