Convert/Import Sony A77 1080p 60p AVCHD to Final Cut Pro for editing smoothly
As one of the most fascinating DSLR camera introductions of 2011, the Sony SLT A77 is able to shoot up to 12 fps at full 24.3-megapixel resolution with continuous auto focus. An unforgettable feature is the Full HD 1080/60p recording with autofocus, which help all its users to record their beautiful memories clearly and vividly. You can shoot Full HD videos in AVCHD format with Sony A77, but the HD experience also brings a problem to the users who want to edit Sony A77 AVCHD 1080p 60p footages in Final Cut Pro. Even with the lastest update of FCP X, we have not seen the expected support for 60p AVCHD MTS.
So how to import Sony A77 AVCHD 60p videos into Final Cut Pro for editing smoothly on Mac? Since the FCP native/best support format is ProRes, the best method to solve this problem is to transcode Sony A77 1080 60p AVCHD to Apple ProRes for Final Cut Pro. Obviously, we need some help from the third-party software. Here I recommend you check out Pavtube's MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac, which is designed as a top Sony AVCHD 60P MTS Converter.
