Default Import Sony NEX-7 AVCHD to Apple Aperture 3 on Mac Mountain Lion

Transcode Sony AVCHD to Apple Aperture 3 best codec on Mac

Summary: Follow this article you will know how to transcode Sony NEX-7 AVCHD to Apple Aperture 3 best format on Mac Mountain.

"I upgraded to Apple Aperture 3.3, but I still do not see my AVCHD files when I try to import them (Sony AVCHD files). I tried changing the file extension, but no luck. I use NEX-7 camera, any ideas?"

This maybe an issue of AVCHD and AVCHD 2.0, AVCHD 2.0 Is 1080p 50fps and 60fps and 3D (stereoscopic). If you shoot any AVCHD 2.0 formats it won't appear in Aperture for import. (this is the same for FCP and iMovie). The Sony Nex 7 does shot AVCHD 2.0 so I would suggest test shooting in all the formats and sizes then import to see what ones are supported and what ones aren't. I would expect you will see all the AVCHD but the 1080p at 60 and 50fps.

Aperture 3.3 supports AVCHD clips in the following formats: 1080p30, 1080p25, 720p60, 720p50, 720p30, 720p25. (********

I have tested videos recorded by Sony and Panasonic in 60fps, but it still is disappointing not to have that in Aperture. So clips formatted at 1080p50 and 1080p60 are not supported, and are not visible in the Aperture Import window.

The easy way to import and edit Sony NEX-7 1080P 50/60p AVCHD in Apple Aperture 3.

As the Apple Aperture 3 can't support 1080P 50/60P video footages, and Sony NEX-7 AVCHD video format is not friendly for Apple Aperture 3, it's a good choice to convert Sony AVCHD to Apple Aperture 3 best supported video formats, such as MOV. Or convert NEX-7 1080 60P to 1080 50P, and then you can edit the NEX-7 video in Apple Aperture 3 smoothly. You can follow the easy steps below.

Step1: Download Pavtube AVCHD to MOV Converter for Apple Aperture 3 and import your Sony NEX-7 AVCHD file.

Step2: Click format column and choose the output format. You are recommended to choose Final Cut Pro -> Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov), it's great for editing in FCP, iMovie and Apple Aperture 3.

Step3: Click settings button to adjust the output video's parameters, such as bitrate, resolution, etc.

Step4: Start converting Sony NEX-7 1080/60p MTS videos to Apple Aperture 3.

After converting, you can load Sony NEX-7 video to Apple Aperture 3 for editing as you want, now you can have a try.
