The Sony NEX-5N users will be glad to find that they can record their memories at 1080/60p, which convey twice the information that 1080/60i. But almost at the same time, they will be disappointed with the incompatibility of the Sony NEX-5N 1080p 60p MTS files and FCP. Even with the lastest update of FCP X, we have not seen the expected support for 50/60p AVCHD MTS. So how to import Sony Nex-5N AVCHD videos into Final Cut Pro for smoothly editing on Mac?
