Edit Canon EOS C100 AVCHD MTS to FCP 6/7/X on Mac

Postby stevenjoen » Wed Mar 13, 2013 4:41 pm

The Canon EOS C100 is the little brother of Canon’s popular C300; employing the same Super 35mm Canon CMOS Sensor and Canon DIGIC DV III Image Processor, the C100 records full HD at 24Mbps to SDHC/SDXC cards using an AVCHD codec. Dual memory card slots allow users the advanced option of recording to two memory cards simultaneously, or recording HD footage to one slot while at the same time recording SD footage to the other. Other features include uncompressed HDMI output (with time code), impressive low light sensitivity and built in ND filters.

So if you use Canon EOS C100 for the 1920×1080 AVCHD recording and want to edit the 1080i/1080p mts files on Mac with FCP 6/7/X, you could find that Canon C100′s recording AVCHD MTS files are not the preferred format for Final Cut Studio. So if you want to edit Canon C100 AVCHD video with high quality on Mac with Final Cut Pro 6/7/Final Cut Pro X, you can convert Canon C100 AVCHD to FCP 6/7/X ProRes or H.264 MOV before editing.

Here is the step-by-step guide for you to import and edit Canon EOS C100 MTS to Final Cut Pro 6/7/X on iMac/MacBook Pro with Mac OS X like Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion.

Step1. Load Canon EOS C100 AVCHD videos to AVCHD Converter for Mac.

After transferring .mts files from Canon EOS C100, run UFUSoft AVCHD Converter for Mac as the best Canon EOS C100 AVCHD to MOV converter, and click the “Add” button to load .mts videos.

Step2. Choose Apple ProRes (*.mov) or HD QuickTime Video (*.mov) output format.

Click the “Format” option, choose the Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 video (*.mov) or HD video > HD QuickTime Video (*.mov) as output format. Import Canon EOS C100 AVCHD format to Final Cut Pro 6/7/X without rendering for editing.


Step3. Merge Canon EOS C100 1080i/1080p AVCHD files. (Optional)

Select the files in the filelist and click Merge, and the Canon EOS C100 1920×1080 AVCHD converter will join and combine the video clips into a single file as output.

Step4. Convert Canon EOS C100 MTS to Apple ProRes or HD H.264 MO for Final Cut.

Click the convert button under the preview window, the Mac Canon C100 1080i/1080p AVCHD converter starts converting Canon EOS C100 1080i/1080p MTS videos to Apple ProRes MOV or H.264 MOV, and joining the MTS files for editing in Final Cut Studio.

After converting and merging the Canon EOS C100 AVCHD files, just import the output files to Final Cut Studio like Final Cut Pro 6/7/X and the video is in HD 1920×1080. You can also import the output videos to Final Cut Express (FCE) 4 or iMovie for editing in full HD.

Transcode Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX75 AVCHD Lite MTS to Avid, Premiere, Sony Vegas, Pinnacle

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX75 is a powerful compact digicam featuring a 3.0-inch intelligent touchscreen LCD, capturing videos in 720p HD with a separate video recording button that keeps the camera always ready to record. With Lumix DMC-FX75 you are allowed to shoot kids videos in an AVCHD Lite model, and would like to upload the AVCHD Lite files to your PC, and put it into video editing programs like Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere, Sony Vegas, Pinnacle Studio for editing. However, most video editing programs does not recognize the AVCHD Lite video footage, and that’s why we need to convert MTS to editable formats before editing.
