Summary: Have some1080/50p AVCHD from Panasonic Lumix GH3 but got error when importing to Avid Media Composer? In this article, we quickly walk you through the most effective way for getting Panasonic GH3 footage into Avid.

The Panasonic Lumix GH3 once again focuses on video as much as photo performance. From the specs we can see that the new Lumix DSLR records at much higher bitrate video. AVCHD capture is now at up to 1080/50p. While enjoying the stunning HD image quality, many folks are having problems when importing GH3 1080 50p AVCHD footage to Avid Media Composer(even with the latest MC 6//6.5/7). If you’re in such a situation, you can read on the article to learn more, which mainly shows you how to get Panasonic GH3 1080 50P footage and Avid Media Composer to work beautifully.

I’m also the GH3 owner and wanna get the output 50p videos to Avid Media Composer on my Mac OS X. But frustratingly, the Avid can't import the recorded 1080 50P AVCHD video, the frame rate is so high and the codec is not friendly to Avid MC for editing. On Avid official website, it recommends DNxHD or XDCAM codec for editing, and DNxHD codec is the first choice.

To edit 1080 50p MTS clips in Avid Media Composer smoothly, what I’ve figured out is that the best solution is to transcode MTS format to DNxHD codec, which ensures maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with Avid Media Composer. For this purpose, this article will show you how to convert Panasonic Lumix GH3 AVCHD to DNxHD .mov in detail.
