Guide & Tips: How to import Panasonic HC-X800 AVCHD footages to Final Cut Pro

Post  MayKelly on Fri Nov 01, 2013 12:21 am

Essentially the same as the HC-X900, Panasonic's HC-X800 is capable of 1080/60p (50p) recording (Full-HD, 1,920 x 1,080, 60 (50) progressive recording), which conveys about twice the information of 1080i (interlace) recording, thus gives you more vivid videos. While you are so satified with the amazing quality of your recordings, are you disappointed to find that all the AVCHD footages in your SD card are greyed out in FCP import window, even when you try to ingest these MTS files via Log & Transfer? It seems that you get the Final Cut Pro import problem with Panasonic HC-X800.

Let me start to explain the problem with the friendly video format of FCP. Whether you are familiar with FCP or not, you should firstly know that the most friendly video codec for FCP, including FCP 6/7 and FCP X, is Apple ProRes. You may sometimes find it possible to import other formats, like AVI/MP4/MOV, etc. to FCP, but you will soon find it inevitable and time-consuming to render the imported clips every time you want to add some effects. The reason for all these importing and editing problems of FCP is that you don't have the right and most suitable video codec for FCP. So Final Cut Pro will simply reject these files or render them agian and again. If you want to transfer AVCHD footages to FCP for editing without any rendering, you need to get your AVCHD files converted to ProRes 422.

Since you have got the main reason for the importing problem, the key to it should be a top and professional MTS to ProRes Converter, which is great in converting AVCHD to ProRes 422 with original video quality at fast conversion speed. aPubsoft's MTS/M2TS Converter, highly recommended by Mac users and proved to be compatible with the new Mac OS X Mountain Lion, can totally meet up with the two points.

Guide & Tips: How to import AVCHD footages to Final Cut Pro

Step 1: Launch the free trial version of MTS Converter on Mac, connect your Panasonic HC-X800 camcorder to Mac or insert the SD card, and load the AVCHD files in CAM_SD --> PRIVATE --> AVCHD --> BDMV --> STREAM.

Tip: If you click the button for importing from folder, please click STREAM and then Choose it, then all the files in the foler will be added to the MTS Converter.

Step 2: Click Format box and you will get five Apple ProRes options in Final Cut Pro.

If you attach great importance to quality, “Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)”or “Apple ProRes 422 HQ (*.mov)” will be your favorite options. But if you want to get a smaller MOV files for easy importing and exporting, please choose “Apple ProRes 422 (LT) (*.mov)” instead. Besides, the “Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy) (*.mov)” format offers file size at SD levels and is recommended for 480i/p and 576i/p shootings.

Step 3: Adjust video and audio parameters in Profile Settings, where you can get by clicking Settings on the main interface.

Tip: For FCP users, 1920*1080 as video size, 30fps as video bitrate and pcm-s16le as audio codec are the most suitable settings.

Step 4: Click the arrow button and start converting AVCHD footages for importing to FCP immediately.

Other features of the Mac MTS Converter:

1. Joining files: Select all files and click "Merge".

2. Preview: Double click on the file and you can get a preview on the converter.

3. Auto shutdown: Click Option and tick the box “Shut down the computer after conversion” before conversion starts.

4. 3D conversion. The Red-Blue/Red-Green 3D conversions are supported.

5. Crop: Edit --> Crop and you can get the imported videos cropped as you want.

After the MTS to ProRes conversion is 100% completed, you can easily put and edit Panasonic HC-X800 recordins in Final Cut Pro without any rendering. In addition, the versatile Mac AVCHD Converter is also effective in getting MTS/M2TS files editable in iMovie, Final Cut Express, Avid Composer Media, Adobe Premiere Pro, etc. You can go to the aPubsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac page to get more info.

Transfer MKV/AVI/Tivo/VOB/M4V/WMV/MPG/FLV to iPad Air

Description: How to easily and quickly sync MKV, AVI, VOB, WMV, MPG, Tivo, MTS, M4V, Flash videos to iPad Air, the best iPad Air Video Converter and this guide will tell you.

Hey mates, the super light iPad Air is coming next week, have you planed to reorder one? The Retina Display with 2048 x1536 pixels, 9.7 inches, no doubt adds more fun to your digital entertainment.

No doubt, watching videos on iPad Air with Retina display would be so great.

You may happen to have videos in MKV, AVI, VOB, WMV, MPG, M4V, Flash video(FLV/F4V), camera videos(MTS/MOV/MXF) or you like recording TV shows by Tivo, and want to transfer them to iPad Air to kill time on board. However, the problem is that not all these formats are supported by iPad Air; even iTunes will not allow you to sync MKV, AVI, VOB, MPG, Tivo and FLV files.

iPad Air supported video format:
H.264 video up to 1080p, 60 frames per second, High Profile level 4.2 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; MPEG-4 video up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format

Obviously, the most compatible video format for iPad Air is MP4/MOV files encoded with MPEG-4 or H.264. The most effective way is to convert MKV, AVI, VOB, WMV, MPG, Tivo, M4V, FLV to MP4 with best video settings for iPad Air.
