Sony FS700 AVCHD to Premiere Pro CS5 and 50% OFF Create MTS to DVD on Mac 10.8

Summary: In this article, we will describe two workflows for Sony FS700 AVCHD on Mac. One is about how to transcode Sony FS700 AVCHD 1080/60p MTS to MOV for using within Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 Mac version and the other is about how to create Sony FS700 AVCHD to DVDs on Mac OS X with 50% OFF at 2012 Pavtube Halloween Promotion Discount.

If you just have a Sony NEX-FS700 camera on hand, you may have issues when loading its AVCHD .MTS footage to Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 Mac version to do post-production. See a user question, "I have just got my new Sony FS700 and it created some AVCHD 1080/60p videos. I currently use Premiere Pro 5.5.2 on a Mac Pro and OS 10.7.3. I have seen that there is no define answer on how to import .mts files from my Sony NEX-FS700 to Premiere Pro CS5.5. I got 'The file has an unsupported compression type' message. I was told AVCHD support is native to Pro, and I need to copy the entire folder from the camera to my video hard drive and import from there. I tried that, and still no luck. I bought the camera mainly for the HD, so help soon would be greatly appreciated!"

To answer the question in short, most non-linear video editing apps do not have well support for AVCHD 1080p50/60 videos, the Premiere Pro is without exception. To make your Sony FS700 workflow in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 smoothly, it's highly recommended converting Sony FS700 mts clips to MOV for Premiere Pro CS5 editing use. Here comes Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac to do so.
