Canon MPEG 2 to FCP- How to edit LEGRIA FS406 MPEG2 in FCP X on Mac OS Mountain Lion?

Canon LEGRIA FS406 is a high definition camcorder, its stylish design, brings a unique look to the HD market. The FS406 records in MPEG2 format, which is the standard for high definition camcorders.

I like easy editing with Final Cut Pro X for family movies like interesting events, cats, building a snowman and so on. Although some people indicates that FCP X supports loading MPEG2 videos, but it doesn't support well. I still could not edit FS406 MPEG2 in FCP X. Finally I found Pavtube Video Converter for Mac which is the best FS406 MPG Converter to transcode FS406 MPEG2 Videos to Apple ProRes 422 perfectly compatible with FCP X.
