You may had tried to edit Nikon D800 recorded footage in FCP X. According to my own experience, it will take a long time for rendering. Nikon D800 shoot movies in MOV format, full HD videos up to 30p. These HD mov video files is quite different from common MOV files. You might have learned that, with the introduction of FCP, Apple produced the most suitable codec for FCP editing. Which are called Apple ProRes family.
