I am a Sony HDR-CX760 user, and I want to import CX760 1080p AVCHD files to FCP 7 for editing on my Mac, it is pity that the AVCHD recordings can't be recognized by Final Cut Pro. Then I went to Google and foud the best way to sovle my importing issue about unknow video format. Are you meeting the similar trouble? In this article, I will share the easy solution with you.

Why the AVCHD .mts/m2ts format is not recognized by FCP?

As far as we know, the perfectly supported codec for FCP 7 is Apple ProRes 422 while the Sony HDR-CX760 camera/camcorder AVCHD files in H.264, we need convert the H.264 AVCHD videos to FCP editable format in ProRes codec.

How to Convert Sony CX760 AVCHD .mts/m2ts shootings to FCP 7?

Firstly, you need a top third AVCHD Converter Tool to help you convert HDR-CX760 1080p MTS footages to FCP 7 on Mac OS X. I used Brorsoft's MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac, which helped me to transcode Sony CX760 H.264 .mts/m2ts to Apple ProRes 422 for FCP 7 quickly and easyly. Besides, the best AVCHD to FCP Converter for Mac (as far as I know) is developed with some useful editing tools, such as merging several clips into one, splitting long video into small clips, rotating your videos, raising the volume, replacing audios, deinterlacing 1080i files, etc.


Then, please follow the guide on making Sony HDR-CX760 1080p AVCHD editable in FCP by the AVCHD Converter Tool for FCP 7.

Step 1: Download MTS to ProRes Converter for FCP and load your AVCHD recordings by clicking the Add button, either directly from the HDR-CX760 or the HDD if you have copy the MTS files to Mac.

1. If you want to combines several AVCHD clips as one, please tick "Merge into one" box to merge the files into one single file.
2. If you intend to split long video for uploading to website, such as YouTube, please select the Split.

Step 2: Click the Format box and select Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) (.*mov) as output if you mainly forcus on the HQ quality. But you should know that the AVCHD file is a highly compressed and the AVCHD to ProRes conversion will make the imported files bigger than the originals. If you want a smaller ingested file, ProRes 422(Proxy) and ProRes 422(LT) are the right options for 480i/p and 576i/p shootings.

Tip: If you prefer a smaller size, please make sure that your FCP 7 is the latest version (7.0.3). Otherwise, ProRes(LT) and ProRes(Proxy) are not the recognizable codecs for your FCP 7.


Step 3: Customize video/ audio parameters based on your needs by clicking the Settings button on the main interface. You can the bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channel according to your needs and optimize the output file quality in the Profile Settings.

1. If you want a HD converted video in a relatively smaller size, you can set the video size as 1440*1080 or 1280*720.
2. If the original files are shot in 60p, please choose 30 fps as frame rate while 25 fps for 50p files.


Step 4: Click "Convert" to start transcoding AVCHD to ProRes 422 for FCP on Mac. Although the time that the conversion process takes depends on your Mac and the size of your loaded files, the AVCHD Converter for Mac is faster than other converting tool and will save you from the long waiting for rendering.

When the AVCHD to ProRes codec transcoding process is completed, you can copy/get the converted files to FCP for editing on Mac OS X without any problem.
