Re-encode Sony FS700 AVCHD to ProRes for freely importing in FCP

Sony FS700 users often meet the problem that they cannot edit AVCHD MTS files made by Sony high definition camcorder in FCP. The following will tell how to use FCP to edit Sony FS700 AVCHD MTS, which is not a Mac friendly format.

I've just got a bunch of CF cards in from a shoot from yesterday. I believe the camera used for the interview was a Sony FS700 On the CF cards, I have 2 folders: }CLP{ and then a }STT{ file, but FCP L&T doesn't like that structure so I can't use that. The files here are QT movs (M-PEG2) and I need to convert to ProRes 422. Not using MPEG since they don't keep source TC, so I'm using Compressor but it's taking EXTREMELY long, even for a 2 minute clip. Is there a quicker way to do these batches because I have to get all this footage over to the editor, but fear at this rate it will take all day!

The FS700 shoots AVCHD. And with any tapeless workflow, you need to copy the ENTIRE card structure to a hard drive. (refer to the guide). If you don't like the complex workflow as above, here hands down the best and easiest way we've found, that is to convert to Prores from a FS700 for importing. You should know that the FCP's native format is Apple ProRes, so after converting you can avoid the headache "FS700 and FCP incompatibility importing problem". Here is a simple tip for you how to make Sony FS700 AVCHD editable in FCP.

If you are planning to edit FS700 MTS clips with FCP, you'd better give the app a try. Here Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac is recommended. It is an easy-to-use MTS to FCP Converter for Mac program with clean interface. And it is good at converting Sony FS700 MTS files to Mac native format for editing. You can try the free trial version to test the functions at first.

Step 3. Click on "Format" bar, you will see the "Final Cut Pro" menu. The menu has several formats for choosing as the best output format. You'd better choose Apple proRes 422(HQ)(*.mov) to keep the original video qaulity.

Tip: If your source file is 1080p, you'd better keep the video frame rate as 30fps, video size as 1920*1080.

How to get iMovie to work with Canon Vixia HF G30 60p mts video?

Here is a simple guide for you to convert Canon Vixia HF G30 60p mts video to AIC for iMovie editing.

When I try to manually import the AVCHD footage from the SD card, iMovie says there are no recognizable files, although the AVCHD files are definitely there (this is consistent with all my recordings and not just on one SD card). I wrote Canon and they have no idea why this occurring, claiming it's an Apple issue. Any idea what's going on and how I can solve it?

For imovie editing workflow, the first clip you add to the project has a different frame rate from the project, iMovie prompts you to adjust the project frame rate to match. Therefore, the video clip from your Panasonic 1080 50p or 1080 60p camcorder doesn't match the project frame rate and as a result, imovie will not support my 1080/50p mts footage by my Panasonic V707.

If you have the same problem with importing Panasonic HC-V707 1080/50p AVCHD to iMovie, you can follow the step-by-step guide below to transcode 1080/50p Slow Motion Video from the  HC-V707 (MTS-File) to  MOV-File with AIC codec to use in iMovie.
