A very strange and annoying but happens when importing a screen recording into iMovie or Final Cut Pro X. After taking a screen recording using QuickTime, when I try to import it into iMovie or Final Cut Pro X, the entire clip is covered with this red tint.
There is an easy fix. Before importing the video into iMovie or Final Cut Pro, right click on the file and select “Encode Selected Video Files”. For me its under the “Services” menu.
Choose your preferred settings
Now wait a few seconds or minutes, depending on how long your video is. It will make a new version that can now be imported without any red tint or filter. So easy!
