Convert Sony NEX-FS100 AVCHD to ProRes for FCP 7/FCP X

Postby jacknjchn » Thu Sep 20, 2012 8:24 am

Sony NEX-FS100 with the high sensitivity, large format CMOS sensor is capable of producing full 1920 x 1080 progressive images with shallow depth of field similar to that of a film camera. Do you have the wedding videos shot by it? Do you want to further edit the wedding videos with video editor like Final Cut Pro to give your friend one meaning gift? Well, some Sony NEX-FS100 users have had attempt, but frustratingly they met some troubles when importing Sony NEX-FS100 AVCHD files to FCP 7/FCP X on Mac.

Well, in fact, it’s not a “fresh” problem we’ve met when getting 1080 60p/50p AVCHD clips into FCP. 1080p50/1080p60 is unsupported in FCP 7 and even the new FCP X, because it is a very non-standard format. Plus, AVCHD is not a good edit format for Final Cut Pro, but Apple ProRes is. So, you’d better convert Sony NEX-FS100 AVCHD files to ProRes no matter for FCP 7 or FCP X. Below is the detailed guide, please go through it.

1. Go to download and install Brorsoft Sony FS100 AVCHD to FCP Converter Mac to make the transcoding task without quality loss, which offers you particular Apple ProRes profiles for Final Cut Pro. Then launch the software to import your AVCHD clips to it.

2. Click on the Format box to select Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422(*.mov) as the output format. If you want to get the best video quality for editing in FCP, you can choose ProRes 422 (HQ) (*.mov).

3. You can click the Settings icon to do some audio/video settings before transcoding Sony FS100 AVCHD to Apple ProRes MOV. We recommend 1920*1080 as video size and 30fps as video bitrate for easier editing in Final Cut Pro. If you are in PAL(50p) area, you are recommended 25fps as video bitrate.
4. Hit the Convert button; it will convert Sony NEX-FS100 AVCHD to ProRes for Final Cut Pro on Mac immediately.
When the conversion process shows in 100% with the top AVCHD to ProRes Converter Mac, you can edit the converted Sony NEX-FS100 AVCHD videos in FCP 7/FCP X without any problems.
