Final Cut Pro X offers an abundance of new editing features designed to let you add and connect clips throughout your project, streamline complex segments of your timeline, refine edits, and test out alternate takes.
Final Cut Pro X supported Video formats:Apple Animation codec, Apple Intermediate codec, Apple ProRes (all versions), AVC-Intra, AVCHD (including AVCCAM, AVCHD Lite, and NXCAM), DV(including DVCAM, DVCPRO, and DVCPRO50), DVCPRO HD, H.264, HDV, iFrame, Motion JPEG (OpenDML only), MPEG IMX (D-10), Uncompressed 10-bit 4:2:2, Uncompressed 8-bit 4:2:2, XDCAM HD/EX/HD422, QuickTime formats
MTS format is a high-definition MPEG, AVC, H.264 transport stream video file format which commonly used by HD camcorders such as Sony, Canon, Panasonic. Camcorders make use of MTS in the form of AVCHD, a recording format made specifically for camcorders. and these files are also present on Blu-ray disc compilations.
FCPX claims 'Native AVCHD Support'. What does this mean?
In the older version before FCPX it uses the way to convert AVCHD to ProRes for editing on FCP.
This time, Final Cut Pro X will still not import a stand-alone AVCHD video file. But importing AVCHD still requires access to the original AVCHD camcorder, or a valid Camera Archive disk structure.
If you navigate to them from the Import dialog, it will have them grayed out. FCPX doesn't work with them directly, you must import MTS files directly from the camera, from a memory card (with the original file structure in place), or from a camera archive. But having to use camera archives is stupid.
A efficient way to import MTS to Final Cut Pro X converter is just need an additional software and no use camera archives method. So the AVCHD Converter for mac is recommended for you. It's designed directly to convert AVCHD.MTS (1080p60/50 included)to FCPX supported formats MP4, MOV, DV. So no matter the AVCHD files are single .MTS files or directly from your camera, you can transfer it to FCPX compatible formats and directly import it to FCPX.
You can do as bellow to finish the final cut pro x mts conversion:
Step 1: Clicking "Add File" to import MTS to Final cut pro x x Converter.
Step 2: Set the FCPX output format, i.e. MOV.
Step 3: Click "Start" to begin the conversion and you will get the destination files in the default folder.
Step 4: Choose the "Import" and "Files" options from under the File command at the top of the Final Cut Pro X window.
Besides, with this software, you can define cropping areas to remove unwanted parts and adjust video brightness, contrast and saturation. Get favoriate segments from avchd files and do avchd video settings to change video resolution.
