Q1:"Good MTS to MOV file converter?
Is there a good .mts (AVCHD 1080 60p) converter that converts the format into a readable file for Final Cut Pro X?"
Q2:"What can I do to edit MTS videos from my Panasonic TM900 in 1080 60p in FCP X?
I am wondering what to do. I have several macs for editing - one is 10.6.11 and I I think one is 10.7 and I am trying to imput and edit footage into FCPX I have a lot of footages recorded by Panasonic Camera HDC TM900 which has MTS files and I shot on 1080/60P. What do I need to get to both be able to import them to FCP X for editing. Please let me know."
FCPX claims 'Native AVCHD Support'. The real meaning is Final Cut Pro X will still not import a stand-alone AVCHD video file. But importing AVCHD still requires access to the original AVCHD camcorder, or a valid Camera Archive disk structure.
As we know Final Cut Pro X has a highly reliable camera import feature that supports AVCHD files, you must import MTS files directly from the camera, from a memory card (with the original file structure in place), or from a camera archive. That to say Final Cut Pro X fully supports AVCHD. But it is not possible to import single .MTS files.
If you want to import your avchd video, You will have to back up the full contents of your SD card, with all directories and files and the use the import
from camera and then go to archive. That is necessary, because AVCDH is a stream and there's additional info saved on the card. Anyway: if you backup AVCDH, back up the full card with all directories.
Maybe you find it is not convinient to back up all the content, and you've already thrown everything aways and only kept the .mts files, and don't worry, you can convert the mts file to final cut pro x supported format.
