Step 2: Click on the Format box and select the FCP friendly format in dropdown-list. You are advised to choose “Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)”or “Apple ProRes 422 HQ (*.mov)” format. Due to the difference in the compresstion standard of AVCHD and ProRes 422, the converted files are significantly larger than the original ones. If you prefer smaller file size, please choose “Apple ProRes 422 (LT) (*.mov)” instead. The “Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy) (*.mov)” format offers file size at SD levels and is recommended for 480i/p and 576i/p shootings.
Step 3: Adjust audio and video parameters in Profile Settings. You can change the default codec, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channel according to your needs and optimize the output file quality.
Tip:Set video size as 1920*1080, video frame rate as 30fps. If the clips are recorded as 50p(PAL), then 25 frame rate is the best choice for you.
Step 4: Click the arrow button on the main interface to start converting 60p AVCHD to ProRes for editing in FCP X.
After converting and merging the MTS files, just directly drag adb drop the output files to Final Cut Pro X without rendering time.
