How to Import AVI to FCP X/7 for editing on Mac?

Final Cut Pro is a professional editing software developed by Macromedia Inc and Apple Inc. It is a wonderful tool to help you put your videos such as AVI videos into professional eye-catching movies.
However, not all AVI files can be accepted by FCP X/7. 

That is to say, if your AVI video files are not imported, that's maybe because the AVI file codec is not recognized by Final Cut Pro. Therefore, sometimes you may find it a painful experience to import AVI files into Final Cut Pro X/7 for further editing, and you may encounter some problems as below: 
“I'm trying to import a number of small .avi files into FCP X but each time I try I get the message "No importable files - None of the selected files or folders can be imported. Change the selection and try again.”
“Though I successfully import Blackmagic Cinema Camera recorded AVI footage to Final Cut Pro 7, it only gets audio in its full length, but video is all blank.”
Faced with those situations, you’d better change AVI to FCP X/7 more friendly format like MOV. Don't worry! For most AVI video files, you only need a powerful tool like iFastime Video Converter Ultimate for Mac to make AVI(DivX, Xvid, H.264 etc. codecs) file compatible with Final Cut Pro X/7, which is fully compatible with all major Mac OS X operating systems like Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan, Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.7 Lion, 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.5 Leopard. The professional converter also helps to convert H.265/XAVC/MTS/MXF/AVI/MP4/FLV/WMV/MPG etc.
