Convert HDC-SD800 AVCHD MTS/M2TS video to ProRes for FCP X editing on Mac OS X
The HDC-SD800 is a high definition camcorder, its stylish design, brings a unique look to the HD market. The SD800 records in AVCHD format, which is the standard for high definition camcorders.
I like easy editing with Final Cut Pro X for family movies like interesting events, cats, building a snowman and so on. Although some people indicates that FCP X supports loading AVCHD videos, but it doesn't support well. I still could not edit SD800 AVCHD MTS/M2TS in FCP X. Finally I found Pavtube Video Converter for Mac which is the best SD800 MTS/M2TS Converter to transcode SD800 AVCHD Videos to Apple ProRes 422 perfectly compatible with FCP X.
