Step 3: Click the “Convert” icon under the preview window, and the Mac MTS to ProRes Converter will start transcode Canon XA10 MTS to Prores MOV for FCP(X) on Mac.
After the conversion, click "Open" to locate the result videos and then launch FCP X, choose File > Import > Files…, and browse to where you save the converted AVCHD clips to. Choose the videos that you'd like to add. Now you can start fun away with editing Canon XA10 video in Final Cut Pro X or FCP 7/6 without problems.
1. If you are also a FCP X user, before you try to do the conversion, don’t forget to make sure that you have installed the Apple ProRes Codec manually since the FCP X asks users to install it by themselves.
2. If you want to edit AVCHD MTS in iMovie, you just need to choose the "iMovie and Final Cut Express -> Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC) (*.mov)" in the second step. For Avid Media Composer, choose "Avid Media Composer > Avid DNxHD(*.mov)" as output; For Adobe Premiere Pro or Vegas Pro, choose Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas> MPEG-2(*.mpg) as output.
