January 13, 2015

In this article I share the best way how to import and edit the Sony FS700 1080 50/60P AVCHD MTS in Final Cut Pro on Mac OS X Yosemite with you.

Source From:Convert FS700 50/60 fps AVCHD clip to Final Cut X/7

Sony FS700 is a great camcorder that has won lots of users. The camera initially offers 1080p video, switchable between 50Hz and 60Hz frame rates (including 60p, 50p, 60i and 24p). A later upgrade will enable 4k capture and Raw output from its built-in 3G-SDI connector. It is also able to capture slow-motion footage, shooting at up to 960 fps at reduced resolution (240fps in Full HD). However, if you want to edit Sony FS700 MTS in Final Cut Pro on Mac OS X, you will meet some problems.


After widely searching and further test, we found that the problems mainly lie in that Final Cut Pro, (FCP 6/7 and FCP X) cannot support the native 1080 60p/50p AVCHD footages from FS700. So the first problem you have to solve is how to transcode Sony FS700 MTS to ProRes, the codec which is specially designed for editing with Final Cut Pro.

Here we recommend the best MTS to ProRes Converter. Its great performance and all the FCP compatible formats included(Apple ProRes 422 HQ, Apple ProRes 422, Apple ProRes 422 LT, etc) make it easier for you to import 1080 50p/60p MTS to Final Cut Pro. Besides, the Mac video converter can convert MTS footage(from JVC, Panasonic, Sony and Cannon) for editing in almost all the editing programs like Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, iMovie, Avid MC, Adobe Premiere Pro etc. Just download it and follow the guide on converting Sony FS700 MTS to ProRes 422 below.

Simple steps to convert Sony FS700 AVCHD to Apple ProRes MOV for FCP

Step 1. Install and launch Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac to dag and drop Sony AVCHD videos to this software. Or, you can click the Add button to load your MTS footage to the program.

Tip: If you want to join the files together, please tick the box “Merge into one” on the main interface.

Step 2. Press the Format box and select one of the Apple ProRes codecs on the dropdown list. You are advised to choose “Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)”or “Apple ProRes 422 HQ (*.mov)” as the export.



Step 3. Click the “Settings” icon and you’d better set the video size as 1920*1080, video frame rate as 30fps for importing Sony NEX-FS700 1080p MTS to FCP with the best quality.



Step 4. Hit he button for “Convert” and start converting Sony FS700 MTS clips to FCP ProRes 422 .mov video on Mac OS X (Mountain Lion, Yosemite) immediately.

Once the 1080p AVCHD to Apple ProRes conversion finished, you can run the Final Cut Pro and click File —> Import —> Files to import the converted files and edit them in Final Cut Pro 6/7/X without any rendering or incompatibility problem.

Editor’s Notes: The most important thing to remember with any digital card format is to copy the entire card, as this will maintain the folder/file structure that a lot of non-linear editing applications need to work with the files.
