Default Working with Canon C100 Mark II AVCHD in FCP X

Working with Canon C100 Mark II AVCHD in FCP X

Summary: What's the best way to work with Canon C100 Mark II AVCHD in FCP X? This article aims to give you an easy solution to edit C100 Mark II AVCHD in FCP X on Mac OS X (Yosemite included) without hassle.


Canon C100 Mark II camcorder is unveiled not long ago, now many users have bought this camcorder. The C100 mark II uses super 35mm canon cmos sensor and a digic dv 4 processor, which are very excellent on the market. With this equipment, this camcorder can offer you better image quality. Besides, it also has many useful features.

However, due to different reasons, people sometimes may encounter incompatibility issues one or another while importing and editing Canon C100 Mark II footage in FCP X. "Not long ago, I purchased the C100 Mark II camcorder. This device has helped me to record a lot of videos since I got it. Today I need to edit few of the videos in FCP X on Mac, so I tried to import the footages into FCP X, but it is disappointed to find that FCP X can't recognize the AVCHD MTS files recorded by C100 Mark II. It is said the video format is not supported."

The Canon C100 Mark II is able to records 1080p videos with dual codec capability in AVCHD and MP4 container format. As we know AVCHD MTS format is great for recording footage from the camera, but it can be a challenge for editing. Although FCP X now has the ability to support MTS videos natively, it doesn't mean you can edit MTS in FCP smoothly all the time. To solve those problems, the quick workaround is to convert Canon C100 Mark II AVCHD to FCP X best accepted format.


Some main files formats recommended for Final Cut Pro:
Video Formats: Apple Animation codec, Apple Intermediate codec, Apple ProRes(all versions), AVC-intra, AVCHD (including AVCCAM, AVCHD Lite, and NXCAM), DV (including DVCAM, DVCPRO, and DVCPRO50), DVCPRO HD, H.264, HDV, iFrame, Motion JPEG(OpenDML only), MPEG IMX(D-10), REDCODE RAW (R3D), Uncompressed 10-bit 4:2:2, Uncompressed 8-bit 4:2:2, XAVC, XDCAM HD/EX/HD422, QuickTime formats.

Container Format: 3GP, AVI, MP4, MXF, QuickTime

According to the information above, Apple ProRes codec, natively supported by FCP X, is highly recommended. Along with some help from third-party software to convert AVCHD MTS to ProRes, editing Canon C100 Mark II AVCHD in FCP X can be done effortlessly. The utility applied here is the professional Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac which can be used as a top MTS/M2TS to ProRes Converter under OS X Yosemite. With it, you can effortlessly transcode AVCHD MTS/M2TS files to ProRes 422 encoded MOV for Final Cut Pro X, and it works well and converts flawlessly. Meanwhile, the Mac MTS conversion tool can create files compatible with various non-linear editing systems including Avid Media Composer, iMovie/FCE, and Adobe Premiere Pro, Premiere Elements, After Effects, etc.

Step 3: Click "Settings" button to customize the output video and audio settings by yourself. But if you are not good at it, you'd better use the default parameters, they will ensure you a good balance between file size and image quality basically.
