Import Sony NEX-5N AVCHD to Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer 6

Summary: Follow this guide you will know how to Import Sony NEX-5N AVCHD to Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer 6.

Sony NEX-5N is one of the excellent compact cameras which has the ability to capture HD video at 1080/60p. This makes for smooth motion. With the recent update of Final Cut Pro X and AMC 6, I was hoping both software would add support for 60P/50P AVCHD; however, seems it did not. As a result, working with video from cameras shooting 60p AVCHD 2.0 footage (like the Sony NEX-5N) brings a bit of a problem when importing the files from your camera.

The quick workaround is to rewrap the Sony NEX-5N AVCHD 1080/60p files. As to keep the HD video quality and avoid rendering, I would like to use the Apple ProRes codec in FCP and DNxHD codec in AMC. The two codecs are the best codec for each editing software, so the best way is to convert Sony NEX-5N AVCHD to ProRes for FCP or Transcode AVCHD to DNxHD MOV for Avid Media Composer on Mac.

Now I will start with the step-by-step guide on how to convert Sony NEX-5N AVCHD 1080/60p MTS/M2TS to ProRes 422/DNxHD and then import the converted videos for editing.
