Experience the new Sony NEX FS700 Digital Camcorder and after recording some 1080 60p AVCHD footage, I wanna get the videos to Avid Media Composer on my Mac OS X. But frustratingly I met the importing problems 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 Avid MC for editing, on Avid official website, it recommends DNxHD or XDCAM codec for editing, and DNxHD codec is the first choice.

So, to edit your Sony FS700 MTS in Avid smoothly, the best solution is to transcode MTS format to DNXHD codec, which is best supported by Avid.
