Import/Load Canon VIXIA HF S100 MTS to FCP X on Mac OS X

Have got a Canon VIXIA HF S100 and have issues with importing movies from HF S100 into FCP X? Is there any solution? Just convert MTS video to Prores for FCP editing on Mac.

Canon Vixia HF S100 goes beyond home movies with features specially included for the aspiring film-maker. The camera has microphone and headphone terminals and a Mini Advanced Accessory shoe for holding external lights and mics. Not only that, but 24p Cinema mode gives your video a film-look while 30p Progressive mode is ideal for action or sports footage. The VIXIA HF S100 allows you to record at up to 24Mbps, the highest bit rate in AVCHD format, for the highest quality image.

My Sister Jane is a user of Canon VIXIA HF S100, she likes it very much as it can shot 1080p 60p HD movies smoothly for her , which make her gain a stanout experience of hdcamcorder, and currently she uses the FCP X for editing, she told me while she is trying to drag and import the avchd files from S100 to FCP X timeline, they immediately need rendering, and the timeline becomes extremely sluggish for scan or preview.


Actually, as we all know, AVCHD is not the favorable format for all the non-linear editing software like Final Cut Pro, FCE, iMovie, including Adobe Premiere Pro.
