I've been importing some 24fps AVCHD footage into FCP 7 with no problem using the prescribed method (copying the entire contents of a card and then selecting "import from camera"), but when I do the same thing with Sony NEX-EA50EH 60fps AVCHD footage, I get error messages. So how to solve this kind of problem. Here I recommend the best Converter for Sony NEX-EA50EH AVCHD to FCP 7 on Mac OS X.
For making Sony NEX-EA50EH 1080p AVCHD footages editable in FCP 7 easily, you need to find the outstanding AVCHD converter to install on your Mac OS X.

1. If you want, you can merge several AVCHD clips by ticking “Merge into one” box.
2. Pls do not imput so many cilps to the software one time in that the software needs more space to run while converting. If the imputed file is 1GB, then memory space should be up to 40GB.
Step 2: Click "Format" bar to choose the output format. Click and choose "Final Cut Pro-Apple ProRes 422(*.mov)" as the best output format for FCP.
Tip: FCP 6 or ealier version only can support ProRes 422 or ProRes 422(HQ). FCP 7 or above can support Pro Res 422(LT), Pro Res 444Pro and Res 422(Proxy).
Step 3: Tap "settings" icon to customize the output parameters, adjust the resolution, bitrate as you want. Set video size as 1920*1080.
Tip: Sony NEX-EA50EH is a professional camcorder that must have two version, NTSC or PAL. For NTSC users, frame rate 30fps is the best choice for them, while for PAL users 25fps is the best for them.
