Final Cut Pro is a powerful video editing software developed by Apple. It supports editing background audio by using built-in tools and dozens of bundled plug-ins, which are the very important parts of processing a professional video. However, the audio, from mainstream music platforms like Spotify, cannot be freely added to Final Cut Pro due to its restriction. So the question is how can we add Spotify music to Final Cut Pro as background audio without limitation?
As we all know, Spotify music is one of the most popular music platforms in the world. It comes with 100 million songs in the music library for the user to listen to. But these songs are protected from transferring to other programs to prevent unauthorized use. That’s why video editors and Spotify music lovers have to find a way to sort out this annoying restriction so that they can more freely edit and enjoy Spotify songs. Here we have a powerful third-party tool named NoteBurner Spotify Music Converter, the following tutorials will show you how to use it to convert Spotify music and import them to Final Cut Pro without limitation.
