I am trying to import media from a Sony HDR-CX760V camera, but FCP X (updated today) can’t ingest the AVCHD clips. It recognizes that an unknown camera is attached, and will not import the movie. Any ideas on how to get the files into FCP X?

If you have got the Sony HDR-CX760V and often use it to record 1080P video, you may have the need to edit Sony CX760V AVCHD in Final Cut Pro on Mac, but as the user stated above, FCP X best supported video format is Apple ProRes 422 codec MOV format, so FCP X doesn’t support Sony CX760V AVCHD footages well.
