Default Easy to Transcode Panasonic AG-HMC40 AVCHD to AIC on Mac OS X for FCE editing

sponsored links

The [b]Panasonic AG-HMC40[/b] is a camcorder designed to record in high definition on standard Secure Digital (SD) and SDHC memory cards. In between the larger HMC 150 and the TM 700, the HMC 40 is a mid-range camera. Good image quality, fair low-light, good built in microphone. No XLR inputs without an optional unit. Are you Panasonic AG-HMC40 MTS users?Have you met some troubles while you trying to [b]edit Panasonic AG-HMC40 AVCHD in FCE[/b] on Mac without any glitches?

[b]I am a Panasonic AG-HMC40 user, I got the Panasonic Ag HMC 40 AVCHD camcorder. I would like to run Final cut Express to do some edit work with its AVHCD videos. But trouble occurs when I import the AVCHD to it, the videos are with glitches. And I spent effort to transfer AVCHD to my iMac, got final MTS files. This time, the Final cut Express cannot recognize the video at all! Can anybody help me in this matter?[/b]

This issue is from a Panasonic AG-HMC40 user. In fact, the old version Final Cut Express can only edit in two codecs DV and AIC (Apple Intermediate Codec). The recent version FCE 4 only allows for transcoding AVCHD to Apple Intermediate Codec (AIC) provided that the camera is actually attached to the computer - it cannot convert AVCHD files stored elsewhere and is currently for Intel processors only. So, if you wanna to edit Panasonic AG-HMC40 AVCHD on Final Cut Express on Mac, you’d better [b][url=***********]convert AG-HMC40 AVCHD to AIC for Final Cut Express [/b] first.

[b]Below, I would like to share the steps about how to transcode HMC40 MTS to AIC on Mac OS X Lion for FCE editing .[/b]
