Superb Canon EOS C100 MTS converter shows you how to transcode AVCHD clips from Canon EOS C100 to Apple ProRes for FCP X editing.


Canon EOS C100 is a new Cinema Camcorder who brings true cinema quality to independent event videographers and video production organizations. It is also the latest addition to the Cinema EOS family, bringing together the renowned technology of Canon CMOS sensors, DIGIC DV III Image Processor, and EF lens compatibility in a smaller, lighter body. It features the Super 35mm Canon CMOS Sensor and Canon DIGIC DV III Image Processor of the C300.

I just bought a new Canon EOS C100 camcorder because I read that it would be compatible with my Mac and FCP. However, I cannot get FCP to recognize the video on the device. When I connect my camcorder via USB cord, my Mac recognizes the drive, but I just can't get FCP to recognize any video files or anything. I don't know much about computers or camcorders but I really need to figure this out for work. Can any one give me some help?

It is a pity that the EOS C100 does not surpport 720p recordings. It only captures 1920 x 1080 or 1440 x 1080 file at 60i. By default, the output video file is 1080 60i .mts. Many users can't copy the footages to Final Cut Pro X for further editing, most of them will see "the file is unsupported" message like the above user. The want to know why. In fact the main reason is that FCP's native codec is ProRes instead of AVCHD.

As we all know, Apple ProRes 422 is the most compatible codec for FCP X. On the contrary, the codec of Canon EOS C100 is AVCHD(MPEG-4 AVC/H.264). So you'd better install a AVCHD Converter for working for yor FCP X. Here I suggest you to use Brorsoft AVCHD to FCP X Converter on your Mac OS X computer. With it, you can easily and quickly transcode AVCHD to the best format ProRes for copying to FCP X.
