Mac Import Lumix GF2 1080i/720p MTS to ProRes 422 HQ for Final Cut/Final Cut Studio

The Lumix DMC-GF2 is Panasonic's second 'pocketable' compact to employ the Micro Four Thirds standard it co-developed with Olympus. Announced in November 2010, it's the successor to the popular Lumix GF1, and like that model packs a large sensor into a small body with a removable lens mount.

The Lumix GF2 offers 1080i at 60 or 50Hz for NTSC or PAL regions, or 720p at 60p or 50p, again for the same regions. In NTSC regions 1080i HD movies are output from the sensor at 30fps and encoded at 60i, and in PAL regions are output from the sensor at 25fps and encoded at 50i. 720p AVCHD movies are output from the sensor at 30fps and encoded at 60p, in PAL regions they're output at 25fps and encoded at 50p.

If you like this camera and want to use Final Cut to edit videos from GF2 and make some projects, you will come across Final Cut Studio does not import the DMC-GF2 Lumix AVCHD HD Videos. Via Google, I find that Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac is the recommended program to convert Lumix DMC-GF2 MTS to ProRes 422 HQ MOV for Final Cut Studio.

Here is the step-by-step guide for you to import and edit Panasonic DMC-GF2 Lumix MTS to Final Cut with Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac on iMac/MacBook Pro with Mac OS X like Snow Leopard.

Step1. Capture and import 1080i or 720p video files directly from Panasonic Lumix GF2 to Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac.
Click “Wizard” and all footages of your camcorder will be showed on the Camcorder window. Then click Next button and choose Import instead of Backup to import Panasonic GF2 MTS files to Final Mate for Mac more quickly. After this, imported footages will be lying in camcorder tab.

Step2. Create a Movie for converting Panasonic GF2 1080i or 720p MTS files to ProRes.
There are two ways for you to create a Movie for converting imported 1080i or 720p MTS files. –The easiest one is dragging and dropping displayed MTS files from Camcorder Tab area to a single Movie.

-Another way is clicking the drop-down button of “Add Movie” icon and choose “For Conversion” to create a blank movie. And then drag and drop the video clips from Camcorder Tab to the blank movie in Movies Tab. In this way, all video clips will be merged as one single movie for conversion.

Step3. Export ProRes video file for Final Cut Studio.
Click the Export button and choose “Export into Editor”. Follow Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 HQ (*.mov) to choose output format for editing in Final Cut. Finally click OK to start converting Panasonic 1080i/720p MTS files to ProRes.

After converting the MTS files, just import the output files to Final Cut Studio (Final Cut Pro and Final Cut Express(FCE) 4) and the video is in HD 1920×1080. You can also import the output videos to iMovie 8/9 for editing in full HD.
