Sony FS700 to FCP - Edit FS700 1080P AVCHD in Final Cut Pro 7, FCP X (El Capitan)

Couldn’t load Sony FS700 1080-60p AVCHD footage to FCP X for editing, what to do? This post is going to give a solution to this question.

Very similar to the Sony FS100, the Sony FS700 professional camcorder shoots video recordings to AVCHD format. It can film at up to 960 frames per second, and has a 4K sensor (11.6 Mega Pixel).

Video Format HD: HD MPEG-4 AVCHD format compatible +1080/60p original format)
SD: MPEG-2 PS (Same as DVD)

Currently 1080/60p footage is a very non-standard format and it’s unsupported by most editing programs. Plus, if you got some single MTS clips from Sony FS700, the NLEs even won’t recognize your files without the intact folder structure.



FCP should read the mts videos if the AVCHD volume structure is kept as unaltered. Otherwise, Final Cut Pro would not read the .mts files directly. If you only saved some loose .mts videos without keeping an entire AVCHD file structure, you need to use an MTS to FCP Converter program on Mac to do format conversion before editing. The recommended solution is Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac, you can run it as an MTS to ProRes Converter.

For Windows users, please get MTS/M2TS Converter. Download the software and learn how to convert Sony FS700 AVCHD to MOV on Mac OS X in detail.

2. Go to “Format” bar and choose “Final Cut Pro> Apple PreRes 422″ or “Apple ProRes 422 HQ” or “Apple ProRes 4444″ as the output format. If you are a FCP 6 or previous user, “Final Cut Pro> Apple PreRes 422″ is the only output format that you can choose.



Tip: If you want to customize the output profile parameters, you can click settings button to adjust video size, bitrate, framerate, channels .etc.

Sony A77 II Workflow within Final Cut Pro X/7/6 on Mac OS X ( El Capitan)

Read following I will show you how to transcode Sony A77 Mark II MTS Footage to ProRes MOV for Final Cut Pro in detail. 

The a77 II is a fantastic sports, action and wildlife camera and one of only a handful of cameras that can successfully use continuous AF during video capture. Its high speed shooting and continuous AF capabilities are on par with far more expensive, pro-level bodies, though it has some limitations. 

As many users get the Sony A77 Mark II , more problems are coming up: some of them have the need to import 60p AVCHD from Sony A77 II to FCP for editing on Mac OS X, but they always meet the importing and editing issues on Mac OS X(Yosemite & El Capitan included). 

Well, in fact, it’s not a "fresh" problem we've met when getting 1080 60p/50p AVCHD clips into FCP. The reason that you can't successfully ingest those recorded AVCHD footages on 1080 60P format to Final Cut Pro is limited by the FCP itself. Currently 1080/60p or 1080/50p footage is a very non-standard format and it's unsupported in FCP X. In order to import Sony A77 II media to Final Cut Pro for smoothly editing, you can use 3rd-party software to re-wrap and convert 60p/50p MTS footage to ProRes encoded .mov format first, which is a native format for FCP. It's a great way to achieve your goal smoothly. 

 

Here we recommend Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac. It supports transcoding all Sony A77 II AVCHD MTS files to Apple ProRes, so that you can easily import the AVCHD raw footage to Final Cut Pro X, Final Cut Pro 6/7 for editing on Mac. This will help you import the file correctly and saving the rendering time. Besides, more output formats like AIC for iMovie/FCE, DNxHD for Avid MC, MPEG-2 for Adobe Premiere Pro, etc are also supported. If you just have the problem about editing Sony A77 Mark II videos in Final Cut Pro, download the Mac MTS Converter and check out the brief guide below. 

 (Note: Click here for OS X 10.5) 

How to transcode Sony A77 II AVCHD to Apple ProRes 

Step 1. Load Sony 1080p/60 MTS files 

Launch the MTS to ProRes Converter on Mac, and click the "Add" button to load the .mts videos. You can also use the drag-and-drop method to load the 1080p .mts files to the application UI. 

 

Step 2. Choose output format 

Press "Format" option and navigate the mouse cursor to choose "Format > Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)" as the best codec for Final Cut Pro 6/7 and FCP X. 

 

Step 3. Advanced Video/Audio Settings 

Click the "Settings" button and customize proper video/audio parameters if necessary. Video size, bitrate and fame rate can be adjusted as you like. Usually 1920*1080 video size and 30fps video frame rate are recommended for FCP editing. 

 

Tip: By clicking "Edit" button, you can trim, crop the video, or add watermark and adjust effect to the videos which you will convert. 

Step 4: Start the MTS to ProRes conversion 

As soon as all things are finished, click the "Convert" icon under the preview window, and the Mac MTS Converter will start transcode Sony A77 II 1080p 50p/60p MTS to Prores MOV for FCP(X) on Mac.
