    Hi Noah (Photo Ninja),

     

    I was hoping you'd pop your head up again. I've been wanting to PM/Email you since last week, but your profile doesn't allow.

     

    From your original post, I made up that you had a TM-900, not a CX560V. Do you have both or was I mistaken?

    I've been wanting to ask you some questions regarding your 60p footage which is off topic of this thread.

     

    Would you be willing to talk via email or otherwise? My email should be visible from my profile page.

     

    I would appreciate any help you can offer.

     

    Thanks,

    Gene

    Hi Chris,

     

    I went back and read every single post of yours. I think you should get paid for the time you've put in here.

     

    Cheers

    I'm not sure I understand the 'unfortunately' part of your statement. Why would you not want to archive your source (MTS) files as they came out of the camera? Why would you want to work with these huge files directly? I see no image quality degradation in my output after transcoding and working with ProRes. I've output and reviewed my output in all formats with excellent results, although I will admit I've not yet tried BluRay.

    Your method worked for my Sony DSC-HX9V! Thanks, JONO!

    Can someone please post a link to the best .mts files converter, one that keeps the same image quality and does the conversion rapidly?

     

    Thanks,

    Meher

    Why do you need a .mts file converter? ClipWrap works well for rewrapping th media to QuickTime. Unless there is something different about your camera, standard AVCHD does not a conversion application to work with FCP.

    hi,

     

    Sorry if this has already been covered, but my Sony hdr-sr10 is not on the compatible devices list for Final Cut Pro X so it seems to me that there's no way I can import my AVCHD files unless I convert them through some software, is this correct before I make the purchase? Or have I missed something?

     

    Thanks!

  • Tom Wolsky Level 10 Level 10 (112,500 points)

    Not being on the list, simply means it's not been tested. It may well work as other similar cameras work.

    Hi there - I just spent hours I don't have trying to import my mts files off my Panasonic HDC-SD100 avchd camera into FCPX - nothing worked ie. greyed out files & didn't recognise the camera (it's not on the supported list).  I downloaded a converter pretty annoyed that I had to go through this workflow. However I decided to check FCPX  software updates. I found new ones & installed them & happy that now my camera files are recognised without going through conversion. Perhaps this will work for anybody unable to import files too. Good luck.

    1. if moving out the individual files from the AVCHD folder structure – once out of there, this will end up with useless MTS raw videos. FCP X doesn’t like MTS/M2TS at all.

     

    2. Even though you have the footage in its structure as it was in the camera, still FCP X did not accept some 1080P AVCHD videos. In fact, FCP X does not ingest AVCHD 1920×1080 50/60P AVCHD MTS recordings. It can only ingest 1080 50/60i or 1080 25/30P and everything below that. you can see my blog to know more.

    @vivianfrommadison:  You're not by any chance a troll for Aunsoft? 

     

    Some statements in your post are incorrect and misleading.  Isolated MTS files are not 'useless'.  They can be readily imported without transcoding into FCPX using ClipWrap or other tools.  Others have confirmed that FCPX will happily edit native 're-wrapped' 1920×1080 50/60P H264 AVCHD MTS recordings. 

     

    Your 'blog' is just a concealed 'advertorial' for Aunsoft.  It contains a number of misleading statements, statements that would confuse the naive reader.  It is incorrect to say that FCPX is not designed to work with MTS files.  FCPX works fine with the H264 files embedded within those MTS containers.  Prior transcoding is not required.  MTS files just need rewrapping, and that is quick and easy and can be done with a number of tools, of which ClipWrap has proven very suitable.  If it is advantageous to work on transcoded video, FCPX can do transcoding on the fly, and it's done to a very high quality at no extra cost.

     

    Aunsoft may provide a range tools for transcoding MTS files, and they may or may not be OK. I've not found any need for them.  In my opinion their aggressive and misleading marketing methods are unprofessional and do no credit to their products.

    In the meantime there were two solutions mentioned here to rewrap MTS files to MOV files. I rewrapped and imported a sample MTS file (55.9 MB) from my SONY HX9V (US model, 1080/60p/28mbps) to be able to compare the results:

     

    + ClipWrap ($50):

    Get Info:

    Size: 61.7 MB

    Codecs: Timecode, H.264, Linear PCM

    Color profile: HD (1-1-1)

    Total bit rate: 27,070

    Encoding software: (not specified)

     

    QT X Info:

    24 bit little endian

    60 FPS   (why 60 FPS?)

     

    FCP X Info:

    59.94 FPS, H.264, Linear PCM, 2 channels, 48kHz

     

    + Media Converter with re-wrap preset (free):

     

    Get Info:

    Size: 55,9 MB   (why smaller file?)

    Codecs: H.264, Linear PCM

    Color profile: (not specified)

    Total bit rate: 26,251

    Encoding software: Lavf53.0.3

     

    QT X Info:

    16 bit little-endian   (why 16 bit only?)

    59.94 FPS

     

    FCP X Info:

    59.94 FPS, H.264, Linear PCM, 2 channels, 48kHz

     

    I'm not sure if Media Converter is enough or if I should buy ClipWrap. After the import in FCP X I can't see a difference. Both previews play perfectly. Can anyone please explain the differences and possible consequences/problems in FCP X? Thanks.

    Thanks -- that's not what I was looking for, but for others (only Panasonic owners?) it might be an alternative to that RevolverHD.

  • emde Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)

    Nope. Works great with my cannon hfs200! It's actually very easy and only takes 2-3 mouse clicks. What's great is it allows you to import as if you had never deleted from the original sd card.
