Export Panasonic HS700 1080/60p AVCHD Videos to Mac Compatible ProRes 422(HQ) for Final Cut Pro
Do you face any problem when trying to import the 1080/60p or 180/50p AVCHD videos from Panasonic HDC-HS700 to Final Cut Studio? In the Panasonic HS700 camera manual, you may find the page 129 of the instruction manual says 1080/60p cannot be imported to a mac. Not to say to log and transfer the 1080/60p files to FCP.
Apple ProRes 422 will be the intermediate codec for FCP to transcode from the supported 1080i videos. However, for the unsupported 1080/60p or 1080/50p AVCHD videos, it would be perfect to get Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) for Final Cut Pro. Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac is the recommended AVCHD to 1080/60p ProRes 422 (HQ) converter on Mac OS X to edit videos in highest quality like uncompressed and lossless videos.

Below is the simple step-by-step guide for camcorder and camera users about how to keep and maintain 1080p 60fps/50fps from Panasonic HS700 to ProRes 422 (HQ) for FCP.
Step 1. Download HS700 files to Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac.
Run Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac as the best Panasonic HS700 AVCHD videos to Apple ProRes 422 converter, click the "Add" button to import .mts files from the camcorder folder like AVCHD > BDMV > STREAM.
Step 2. Choose ProRes 422 (HQ) codec.
Click the "Format" option, and navigate to Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422(HQ) (*.mov) as output format. The Mac 1080/60p video converter will transcode AVCHD .mts files to ProRes 422 (HQ) .mov.

As the AVCHD 1080/60p video is with high data rate, it is recommended to use Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) as output codec, instead of Apple ProRes 422 (LT), Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy). The alternative codec is Apple ProRes 422, which includes lower data rate than the HQ codec.
Step 3. Choose 1080p size with 60 or 50fps.
Click the "Settings" button and choose 1920*1080 from the video size drop-down box to keep the original HD resolution. Click the drop-down box for frame rate, and choose 60fps or 50fps as output video frame rate. The frame rate option depends on your source videos in NTSC or PAL model. Click the OK button to save the changes and the Mac AVCHD video converter will convert 1080/60p AVCHD videos to Mac FCP compatible 1080/60p ProRes 422 native format.

Step 4. Convert HS700 1080/60p to ProRes 422 HQ on Mac for FCP.
Click the convert button under the preview window, and the Mac HS700 AVCHD to FCP native format converter will start converting HD 1080 to 1080/60p for FCP on Mac Non-linear editing.
