Did you encounter any program when try to edit Sony Handycam HDR-CX405 AVCHD videos on Mac FCP 7, FCP X, or iMovie? This is a tutorial which tells you how to import HD camcorder videos to FCP/iMovie for editing on Mac OS X.

Sony Handycam HDR-CX405

With the Handycam HDR-CX405, Sony’s aim is to use technology to help make a camera that makes creativity and real-world movie making easy. The image quality is great even in dim conditions as the image sensor is a Back Illuminated 1/5.8 type (3.1mm) Exmor R CMOS sensor. This type has twice the sensitivity of a standard sensor type for better low light performance. Fantastic movies are the result when used with the camera’s BIONZ X processor which is capable of producing extra smooth footage at XAVC S bit rate of 50Mbps (or AVCHD). You can easily view your movies and stills on the 2.7-inch (6.7cm) Clear Photo LCD monitor which has 230,400 dots and 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio.

Well, AVCHD is a great format for playing but not a comfortable format for editing with Mac(Almost Mac tools are designed to support MOV format). And as far as I know 1080 60p AVCHD Progressive is a nonstandard format, iMovie won’t support it natively, and we can not successfully transfer AVCHD footages on 1080 60p/50p format to Final Cut Pro is limited by the FCP itself.. To bring MTS clips Sony CX405/B Handycam into iMovie for further editing without error again, we advice you to reformat AVCHD to a compatible format, such as iMovie's Apple Intermediate Codec, FCP's ProRes Codec, before importing and editing.



I have been using the professional Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac to encode my Sony HDR-CX405 AVCHD .mts footage to AIC .mov with the best befitting settings. With this software, you can aslo effortlessly transcode MTS to Apple ProRes 422, ProRes 422 HD, ProRes 422 LT, ProRes 4444 for FCP, MPEG-2 for Premiere Pro, DNxHD .mov for Avid MC, etc., and it works well and converts flawlessly. Below is the detailed guide for you.

Step 1. Launch the software and click Add File icon to load your 1080p MTS file(s) to it.



Step 2. Click on the pull down menu of “Format” and select “iMovie and Final Cut Express > Apple Intermediate Codec(AIC) (*.mov)” as the output format.



Choose ProRes as output format

This MTS to ProRes Converter offers optimized format presets for Final Cut Pro, “Final Cut Pro -> Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)”, “Final Cut Pro -> Apple ProRes 422 HQ (*.mov)”, etc. Choose a one you need.



Step 3. Press the “Settings” icon to freely set video resolution, frame rate, bitrate, etc freely. Since you got 1080 60p AVCHD file, you need to change the frame rate to 30fps for easy editing in iMovie 8/9/11.



Step 4. Click "Convert" button to transcode AVCHD to mov with the best MTS to FCP/iMovie Converter.

When the conversion is over, you can click "open" to get the converted video. Then you can easily get Sony HDR-CX405/B footage to Final Cut Pro, iMovie for easier editing.

Canon EOS 5DS/5DS R and FCP 7/X-Convert Canon 5DS/5DSR MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 MOV to Final Cut Pro X, FCP 7

In this article we will share the way to convert Canon EOS 5DS/5DS R recorded MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 MOV files to supported format of Final Cut Pro X, FCP 7, and then you can import the converted videos to FCP for editing smoothly.

Canon has added to its EOS 5D range with the launch of two 50MP cameras, the 5DS and the 5DS R. Both cameras are high-resolution full frame models, primarily aimed at stills photographers. The only difference between the models is that the 'S' has an optical low-pass filter, while the 'S R' has a self-cancelling filter (the same relationship as Nikon's D800 and D800E models shared).

The two cameras will exist alongside the EOD 5D Mark III, acting as dedicated high-resolution cameras primarily intended for studio, landscape and wedding shoots, rather than the all-round capability offered by the existing model. The Mark III still trumps the S and S R in terms of maximum ISO and continuous shooting speed.

Canon EOS 5DS / SR key features

50MP CMOS sensor
5fps continuous shooting
ISO 100-6400 (Extends to 12,800)
61-point AF module with input from 150k pixel metering sensor
Dual Digic 6 processors
3.0" 1.04m dot LCD
CF & SD slots (UHS-I compatible)
1080/30p video
M-Raw and S-Raw down-sampled formats

Weighing only about 2.8 kg(main unit), the AJ-PX800G is the world's lightest shoulder-type, 2/3-type, three sensor camera-recorder equipped with three MOS image sensors for broadcasting applications. It also supports several AVC-ULTRA codecs - the picture quality and recorded data rate can be selected from one of the AVC-ULTRA family of codec's (AVC-Intra/AVC-LongG) according to the application.

Many photographers are very interested in the Panasonic AJ-PX800 but they have the same confusion how does AVC-Intra/AVC-LongG work with Final Cut Pro?As we all know, FCP 6/7/X does not currently support AVC-Intra native timelines, so all such source footage will still have to be re-rendered within the timeline. The upside with AVC-Intra native editing is that AVC-Intra clips are re-packaged into Quicktimes within the project capture scratch folder thereby creatinga new master copy of the files. AVC-Intra is listed as one of the many supported formats of FCPX, but there are still many importing and editing issues unresolved.

In one word, AVC-Intra/AVC-LongG and Final Cut Pro 6/7/X are not compatible fully. Although, Apple has tried their best to make FCP ingest the AVC-Intra P2 files effortlessly, it need a long time for rendering and some other problems still exist. Plus, the Panasonic’s 10-bit AVC-Intra codecs are very demanding on your computer’s processor. So, to make it easier for editing Panasonic AJ-PX800G P2 AVC-Intra MXF videos on FCP 6/7/X, the most effective solution is to transcode P2 AVC-Intra/AVC-LongG to ProRes on your Mac. It helps you convert P2 AVC-Intra100/AVC-Intra50/AVC-LongG50/AVC-LongG25/ AVC-LongG12 MXF to Apple ProRes 422(HQ), the appropriate format for AVC-Intra/AVC-LongG footages.
