AVCHD Progressive is a very popular format for us, it is the upgrade of AVCHD(MTS/M2TS). It is not a standard format for many non-linear editors including Final Cut Pro 7. It menas that if you have shot some 60p AVCHD progressive recordings and try to import to FCP 7 with Log and Transfer, you will see nothing clip in L&T window. Because L&T plaugin doesn't support to transcode or directly import the 60p AVCHD to Final Cut Pro for editing. Then what is the best solution to importing Canon VIXIA HF R40/HF R42/HF R400 AVCHD progressive video to FCP 7?
As we all know FCP's native video format is Apple ProRes, if we reformat AVCHD to ProRes, we will can easily transfer it to FCP7 without any plugin. To convert Canon VIXIA HF R 60p AVCHD o ProRes, we have to use a top AVCHD Converter for Mac to do the conversion. Here I show you the Brorsoft AVCHD to ProRes Converter. It can help you transcode MTS/M2TS videos at 28Mbps, 24Mbps, 17Mbps, 5Mbps, ect on Mac OS X. Below is the easy guide on converting Canon VIXIA HF R40/HF R42/HF R400 .mts/.m2ts files.
Step 1: Launch the sofware to load your 1080 60p MTS to it for converting.
Step 2: Click the format bar, and move the mouse pointer to Final Cut Pro profile, you will see several Apple ProRes formats like Apple ProRes 422, Apple ProRes 422 HQ, which are the proper choices.
Step 3: You can click the “Settings” icon to freely set video resolution, frame rate, bitrate, etc freely. Since you got 1080 60p AVCHD file, you need to change the frame rate to 30fps.
Step 4: After the settings, please click Convert button to start transcoding MTS to ProRes .mov for Final Cut Pro 7 on Mac OS X.
