Have you got JVC’s new line of “WiFi-enabled” Everio GZ-VX700 camcorder? The VX700 isn’t the cheapest of JVC’s 2012 Everio camcorders, but it comes with a modest $499 price tag that makes it a bit cheaper than the competition. To keep the costs down, however, JVC included no internal memory on the GZ-VX700, so you need to add in the cost of memory cards to your total package price. The performance of the camcorder, as well as its cheap construction, also didn’t leave us that impressed— but that’s what we’ve come to expect from mid-range JVC models.
GZ-VX700 uses the most popular recording format AVCHD(MTS/M2TS), which can up to 1920 x 1080p/60 fps. As we all know AVCHD features almost twice the recording time in HD quality than the conventional Motion JPEG, so some GZ-VX700 users that are new to AVCHD are likey to meet some troubles for playing and editing on Mac OS X. From Googling, I found many users couldn't get AVCHD .mts files to Final Cut Pro(x) for editing. Here, I will take JVC GZ-VX700 video as an example and share the best way to transfer JVC GZ-VX700 1080p MTS files to FCP
In fact, you'd better transform MTS to FCP's native format- Apple ProRes first, thus you can put videos to FCP without rendering and incompatible problems. To keep the original video quality for editing, you need a top Mac AVCHD Converter to transcode footage with best video and audio settings. Below is the perfect way to help you do that.
How to chnage AVCHD to ProRes keeping best quality
Step 1: Import MTS/M2TS to the MTS to ProRes Converter.
Tip: If you have several JVC GZ-VX700 AVCHD files and want to combine them to be one file, you can click the “Merge into one” box so that you can play these files without interruption.
Step 2: Select an output format for FCP X and set the output folder. Click on the “Format” and get the dropdown menu, then move you pointer to “Final Cut Pro”. Under the sub list are there a few formats which are all compatible with FCP. Then you can set the output folder by clicking “Browse” icon as you need.
Note: If you want the files to be in smaller size, you can follow Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422(LT)(*mov)/Apple ProRes 422(*mov) option.
Step 3: Adjust audio and video parameters in Profile Settings. You can change the default codec, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channel according to your needs and optimize the output file quality.
1. Recommend: Video Size:1920*1080 & Frame Rate:30 fps(NTSC) or 25fps(PAL)
2. If your file is 1080i, you can click Edit and select "deinterlacing" in the Effect to deinterlace 1080i files.
Step 4: Tap the Green Arrow button on the main interface to start converting JVC GZ-VX700 1080p MTS video. After the conversion, plaease click "Open" to find the converted video.
Copy video to FCP without Log and Transfer
Now, the video is natively playable for FCP. Run FCP and click "File> Import> files" to directly ingest clips to the editing software. You will directly and quickly import the file to FCP without rendering time and any error. Have a good time on waching and editing JVC GZ-VX700 videos.
