How to Edit Panasonic 1920x1080/50p AVCHD in Final Cut Pro 6/7/X

Final Cut Pro is almost the most popular video editing software at present. More and more video enthusiasts, editors, and even film makers prefer Final Cut Pro out of its powerful performance and compatibility. It supports a great number of simultaneously composited video tracks, unlimited audio tracks and multi-camera editing for combining video, as well as standard ripple, roll, slip, slide, scrub, razor blade and time remapping edit functions and so on.

Although Final Cut Pro has countless well-known formidable functions, it is also “nitpicking” to importing formats of videos. For example, as we all know, most camcorders output AVCHD files, but it is not allowed to directly edit AVCHD in Final Cut Pro. Before the postproduction, I should convert Panasonic AVCHD to ProRes for Final Cut Pro. Here I would recommend you a piece of fantastic converter which I have used for one year without making any mistakes – Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac.


Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac features in converting MTS and M2TS files perfectly and some basic editing functions during the conversion.
It mainly supports MTS/M2TS to AVI, MP4, MOV, SWF, Apple ProRes and many other common formats.

This software also converts MTS/M2TS to Final Cut Pro etc with Native Codec and turns MTS/M2TS into Apple ProRes so that it can be compatible to iMovie, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, Avid Media Composer Sony Vegas and lots of other editing software and players.


Here I would give an example of I converting Panasonic 1920x1080/50p AVCHD to Final Cut Pro.
Step one. Get Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac stalled. (Click here to try the windows version).

Step two. Add or Drag AVCHD files to the interface.
You can add or drag the file or the folder directly to it without worrying about it can’t recognize the AVCHD file.


Step three. Select Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)

There are many other formats also compatible to FCP. If you want more, you just need to follow the instructions to select them. Step four. Adjust the “setting” to finish your specific selections.


I want to turn the frame rate to 50. This function perfectly satisfied me! Even the unskilled person like me can operate it very easily.

Step five. Click the “yellow arrow” icon to start converting Panasonic 1920×1080/50p AVCHD to Final Cut Pro 6/7/X.
