"I downloaded a client's .mts files off their Panasonic HD disk camera thinking that I could easily convert them to something easily read by FCP.
As this is going onto SD DVD, the workflow is to downconvert all the rushes to work in DV-PAL Widescreen format. I have tried Voltaic, but I am not getting smooth movements. Procoder on the PC is ok, but whenever a red/orange colour comes on screen, other colours start 'pulsing' like a hunting auto white balance. (This is not on the original files so not a camera issue).
The client has taken the camera off to the other side of the world now so I can't play out via component, which is what I should have done in the first place. Can anyone advise on the next course of action? Thanks." from forums.creativecow

Have you tried importing mts to Final Cut Pro X?
Keep in mind that we also can't import .mts files directly from the Finder. If you navigate to them from the Import dialog, it will have them grayed out. FCPX doesn't work with them directly, you must import MTS files directly from the camera, from a memory card (with the original file structure in place), or from a camera archive. But having to use camera archives is stupid.
If you want to edit AVCHD in Final Cut Pro/FCPX or add AVCHD footage in Final Cut. Then you need a AVCHD Converter to convert AVCHD to FCP supported formats.
