When I import the footage into Avid, I found the Media Composer 6.5 cannot handle the AVCHD files well, and some the footage looks washed out and the preview is loggy. Is there anyway to solve the problem? Thanks!"
As the Avid can't import Sony FS700 recorded 1080 50/60p AVCHD video, the frame rate is so high and the codec is not friendly to AMC for editing, on Avid official website, it recommends DNxHD or XDCAM codec for editing, and DNxHD codec is the first choice. So if you want to edit your Sony FS700 recording MTS in Avid smoothly, you should transcode MTS to Avid DNXHD MOV, which is best supported by Avid.
