Default Import Panasonic AF100 AVCHD Files to Final Cut Pro 7

Get FCP 7 to read MTS files from Panasonic AF100 uccessfully

Summary: Facing the issue that you can't load MTS files from Panasonic AF100 into FCP? In this article, we will give you the tips how to import and edit AVCHD MTS files in Final Cut Pro with Apple Prores LT codec on Mac without problems.

"I have mac osx 10.6.8 with final cut 7. I want to convert avchd mts files to Prores (LT). I have the mts free version but it looks like both converters work with mts and they're almost the same price. Which one do i want?Lately I've been editing other's people shots with my Final Cut 7. I can handle AVCHD from panasonic AF100 if the file structure is still there but sometimes I get orphaned mts files I can't read. I have also been getting footage from a Canon Vixia and a LUMiX GH3 shooting 60p that I can't read."

The AF100 records video to the AVCHD format, in either 1080 (24p, 25p, 30p, 50i, 60i) or 720 (24p, 25p, 30p, 50p, 60p). This AVCHD format is a surprisingly good and well-rounded option that does the AF100 justice. It delivers a very crisp, clean image that suffered from none of the macroblocking you would see in an older prosumer codec like HDV. But if want to edit the 1080p mts files from AF100 on Mac with FCP 6/7, you could find that Panasonic AF100's recording AVCHD MTS files are not the preferred format for Final Cut Studio.

If you want to edit Panasonic AF100 AVCHD video with high quality on Mac with Final Cut Pro 7, you can convert AVCHD to FCP compatibel Prores .MOV before editing. Here is the step-by-step guide for you to import and edit Panasonic AF100 MTS to Final Cut Pro 7 on iMac/MacBook Pro with Mac OS X like Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion.

Step 1: Free Download and install Panasonic MTS to FCP Converter to your Mac. It's excellent Panasonic AVCHD Converter which can convert nearly all Panasonic camcorder videos to any formats you need, such as Apple Prores 422 MOV, Apple InterMediate Codec MOV, QuickTime MOV, etc. Then import your AVCHD files from AF100.

Breaking news: Pavtube has started the 2013 Thanksgiving Crazy Discount, if you get MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac, you can get FLV/F4V Converter for Mac free which can help you to burn mts footage to DVD on Mac with ease. In addition, you can also get more Discount at this promotion page. Take a look now and grasp this opportunity before Dec.10, 2013. Never miss!

Step 2: Click the format bar, and move mouse cursor to "Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422(LT) (*.mov)" as output format for editing in Final Cut Pro 7. This format will give smaller file size.

Tips: To get high quality, please choose "Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) (*.mov)" instead. The Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) codec offers the utmost possible quality for 4:2:2 or 4:2:0 sources (without an alpha channel) and provides the following:

* Target data rate of approximately 220 Mbps (1920 x 1080 at 60i)
* Higher quality than Apple ProRes 422

Learn more Apple ProRes, please refer to Types of Apple ProRes Codecs

Step 3. Click "Convert" button to start transcoding Panasonic AF100 AVCHD videos to FCP 7 on Mac OS.

After a shot conversion, you will be able to import/load Panasonic AF100 mts videos into Final Cut Pro 7 for editing without rendering. With it, you can also get the mts video (especially the 60p .mts shooting) from your Canon Vixia and LUMiX GH3 to recognized by FCP 7. Just have a try. Good luck!

Default How to edit Blu-ray/DVD movie in Avid Media Composer?

Rip BD/DVD to high-quality DNxHD file for Avid Media Composer on Mac

Description: Best DVD/BD to high-quality DNxHD solution, so you can edit DVD/BD movies in Avid Media Composer on Mac with least quality loss.

"Hi I'm an amateur video editor who wants to make some trailer or mash-up to improve my skills. I do own hundreds of Blu-ray and DVD discs but want to extract some clips out to Avid Media Composer for editing; high-quality video is my first choice. Is there any good software for this? Many thanks!"

To extract clips from Blu-ray and DVD disc is much different from playing back directly. Firstly, commercial DVD and Blu-ray are protected from copying, so you have to roll off disc protection firstly; then the format and quality issue.

The workflow seems to be complicated. However, with Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac I'm running, it can't be easier to get high quality DNxHD file from BD/DVD. Pavtube ByteCopy is the "All in one" Blu-ray ripping software, simple and easy to use with lot's of presets which I can change. Which I like most is the DVD/Blu-ray decoder, I don't care about protections, Pavtube take card about everything. As long as your disc has been downloaded, it's decrypted. So make sure your Internet connection is ok. And it provides multi-track MP4/MOV/ProRes presets in which I can isolate dialogue and music in one movie if I want.

Free trial download link: ********

How to use Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac to rip BD/DVD to high quality DNxHD

1. First of all, get this BD/DVD to DNxHD Converter installed and insert DVD to Mac. Btw, Mac cannot read Blu-rays directly, if you want to rip Blu-ray, plug-in your external Blu-ray drive to Mac and read Blu-ray there.

Now click the first disc-like icon on the top, click your disc name to load. Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac will detect the main title automatically, unless you wan to rip the extras, do not touch it.

2. The next step, click "Format" drop-down list and choose "Avid Media Composer>Avid DNxHD(*.mov)".

3. Now the most important step to get DNxHD file in best quality.

Click the "Settings" icon (next to "Format"), set bitrate to "High quality". The higher bitrate you choose, the larger file size and better video quality will be. Also you can free change other settings like frame rate, audio sample rate, channels, etc. here.

4. Well it's all set now. Back to main UI, hit the big red "Convert" to start ripping Blu-ray/DVD to DNxHD in best quality for Avid Media Composer on Mac. Wait for moments, hit "Open output folder" or "Open" to quick find the converted files.
