If you’re familiar with Sony’s NEX-5 and NEX-3 digital cameras, then you will be familiar with the same Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor found in the NEX-VG10. Not only that, another added advantage is its compatibility with the entire range of “A-mount” interchangeable lenses used by Sony’s existing a DSLR camera lineup thanks to a mount adapter which is sold separately. The NEX-VG10 keeps up with the times, capturing full 1920×1080 high definition video at up to 24Mbps, making it perfect if you want to come up with your own Blu-ray discs for family and friends.

While there is a great deal to appreciate about the VG10, and it fulfills its primary brief of shooting video with a large sensor and interchangeable lenses at an attractive price point, there is a lot about the VG10 to be critical of. For example,  SONY NEX VG 10 camera that records in AVCHD high profile, and some Sony NEX-VG10 users intend to edit Sony NEX-VG10 AVCHD in FCP 7 on Mac, but they get frustrated as FCP 7 can not support importing AVCHD files, which make AVCHD flies can not be ingested natively into Final Cut Pro 7 for editing.

Follow this page , you will find the best solution here! Below I would like to provide a full guide to help you relize it. It won't cost you a long time and it is fairly easy to operation.

You should be able to use Log and Transfer in FCP if you kept the original folder structure intact. If not, just convert Sony NEX-VG10 AVCHD to FCP 7 most compatible format Apple ProRes. Here I recommended Brorsoft AVCHD to FCP Converter for you to make the transcoding task without quality loss, which offers you particular profiles for Final Cut Pro.

Step 1: Download and install the Brorsoft Mac MTS/M2TS Converter for FCP 7 on your computer, and then launch the program to add 1080/60i MTS/M2TS files to it.
Tip: You can select the “Merge into one” box to merge multiple MTS/M2TS video clips for easy editing in FCP 7.

Step 2: Click on the Format icon and here we recommend Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) (.*mov) as the output format for Final Cut Pro 7 with the most compatible video codec.

Step 3: You can click the Settings icon to do some audio/video settings. We recommend 1920*1080 as video size and 30fps as video bitrate to keep the best quality.
NOTE: Before start the conversion, you’d better to deinterlace 1080i AVCHD files for editing in FCP or other non-linear video editing software including iMovie, Final Cut Express, etc.

Step 4: Click Convert button; it will transcode Sony NEX-VG10 MTS to Apple ProRes for FCP 7 immediately. Follow the conversion process in the “Conversion” interface.
