HELP to convert Sony NEX-7 60P .mts files for use in Final Cut Pro 7, FCP X

Fail to import Sony Sony NEX-7 60p footage to FCP/FCP X, get the best workflow of 1080 60p videos with FCP with the solutions offered below.

The Sony NEX-7 is several years old. But it is still my priority camera for all TechGuy SmartBuy photo & video needs.

Nex-7 still best!

Hi, I just went onto the Imaging Resource Compatator and compared the new Fuji x-pro2 with my old Nex-7 on the still life 100iso screen. the Nex shows more detail in the bottle label and where the Sony sees a red cloth with a pattern on it, the Fuji just sees a red cloth!

One thing that really makes the Sony Alpha NEX-7 stand out among competitors is the ability to capture HD video at 1080/60p (i.e., 59.94 progressive frames per second). While enjoying the stunning HD image quality, many folks are having problems when importing NEX-7 60p videos to FCP X or FCP 7/6.

If you’re in such a situation, you can read on the article to learn more, which mainly shows you how to get Sony NEX-7 1080 60P AVCHD footage and Final Cut Pro X/7/6 to work beautifully.

The reason that you can't successfully ingest those recorded AVCHD footages on 1080 60P format to Final Cut Pro is limited by the FCP itself. Currently 1080/60p footage is a very non-standard format and it's unsupported in FCP 6/7 even the lastest FCP X. In order to import NEX-7 60p AVCHD footage into FCP X for smoothly editing, you can use 3rd-party software to re-wrap and convert 60p MTS to Apple ProRes encoded mov format first, which is a native format for Final Cut Pro 6/7/X. It’s a great way to achieve your goal smoothly. For this purose, this article will show you how to transcode Sony NEX-7 AVCHD Footage to ProRes MOV in detail.

The quick workaround is to use the easy-to-use yet professional app called Brorosft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac which can be used as a Sony AVCHD MTS Converter under OS X Leopard (10.5), Snow Leopard (10.6), Lion (10.7), Mountain Lion (10.8), Mavericks (10.9), Yosemite (10.10) and El Capitan (10.11). It is cheap, clean and safe to install and use. With it, you can effortlessly transcode MTS to ProRes MOV for Final Cut Pro 6/7/X, and it works well and converts flawlessly. Below is how.

Converting Sony NEX-7 60p AVCHD to Apple ProRes MOV for Final Cut Pro X or FCP 7/6

Step 1: Load Sony NEX-7 1080p MTS to Mac MTS to ProRes Converter.

Use a card reader to copy and transfer the .mts files to iMac hard drive disk, run Mac Sony MTS Converter as the fast Mac MTS to ProRes Converter, and click the “Add” button to load the .mts videos. You can also use the drag-and-drop method to load the 1080p .mts files to the application UI.

Step 2. Choose outout format

Press “Format” option and navigate the mouse cursor to choose “Format > Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)” as the best codec for FCP 6/7 and FCP X on Mac. The Mac Sony MTS converter will transcode Sony NEX-7 MTS to FCP 6/7 or FCP X compatible MOV with ProRes as video codec in HD 1920×1080.

Step 3. You can click “settings” button in the main interface to customize the output video’s parameters, such as resolution, frame rate, etc.

Step 4. You can edit the MTS video before you convert NEX-7 MTS to ProRes MOV.

By clicking “Edit” button, you can trim, crop the video, or add watermark and adjust effect to the videos which you will convert.

Trim – Choose to reserve the part you need. Just choose the chapter which you need to trim, to set “start time” or “end time”, type the portion which you want to save.

Crop – Remove black edges of your video or just get the scale of this video you want.

Effect – Adjust the effects by adjusting the parameters, such as:

1) Deinterlacing – If there are some stripes on the picture, you can check this option to make a better picture effect. (Checked by default)

2) If you want to get 3D effect, just enable this fuction and do settings:

Step 5. Start the conversion

Click the “Convert” icon under the preview window, and the Mac MTS to ProRes Converter will start transcode Sony NEX-7 MTS to Prores MOV for FCP(X) on Mac.

After the conversion, click the “Open” button to locate converted files, then load ProRes .MOV files in FCP (X). Now you can successfully and easily import Sony NEX-7 60p videos to FCP 6/7 or FCP X for editing with best quality.

Additional Tips:

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 Sony 60p AVCHD footage in iMovie, you just need to choose the "iMovie and Final Cut Express -> Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC) (*.mov)" in the second step.

3. If you want to batch conversion, the professional iMedia Converter for Mac is the best choice for you.

Best 4K Video Playback Tips for DJI Phantom 3 and 3D Robotics Solo

DJI Phantom 3 Professional vs 3DR Solo Smart Drone

The DJI Phantom 3 quadcopter and 3DR Solo are two of the biggest names in the world of consumer drones. The DJI Phantom Series accounts for at least 80% of consumer drones sold, while the 3DR Solo accounts for...a lot less. The Phantom 3 Professional drone is the top variant of the P3 series, utilizing a 4K and 12 MP camera, linked to an auto-adjust three-axis gimbal. (By comparison, the 3DR does not include a camera.)

But which is better? We'll try to help you with your decision by listing the advantages that each drone has over the other. Look at the facts and decide for yourself!

DJI Phantom 3 Pro's over the 3dr solo:

Built-in 4K UHD Camera w/ 3-axis Gimbal
Apple and Android Support
Higher Gimbal & Camera Setup
Longer Range & Flight Time
GLONASS Support.
No "Fisheye" Camera Effect
Lighter Overall
Superior Hover Accuracy Vertical Hover Accuracy of +/- 10cm. No other quadcopter had this yet so for now its in the Pro's of the phantom 3. However this is probaly achieved close to the ground and not above 10 meters.
Indoor/Outdoor Hover-Lock

PRICE = $999

3DR Solo Pro's over the Phantom 3:

Option to Use Action Cam of Your Choice (Camera not included.)
No-Fault Warranty
Heaviness Aids Stability in Windy Environment
Faster than Phantom 3
Upgradable Antenna
Less Latency than Phantom 3

PRICE = $1,000 (with gimbal) + $400 GoPro Hero 4 = $1,400

Both the P3 and 3DR feature 720p live video streaming and wind resistance above 21.7 km/u. The Phantom 3 includes all essentials, such as camera and gimbal, while the 3DR doesn't. However, the P3's camera and gimbal are not detachable--you're stuck with them. The 3DR gives the pilot the option of selecting his camera, be it a GoPro or Sony ActionCam or whatever, and gimbal. That gives you the liberty to select what camera is right for you.

Perhaps the deciding factor is price. You can come away with a complete Phantom 3 Pro for just $999, while the 3DR Solo will run you at least $1,400 with camera and gimbal.

Hopefully that info helped you decide!

Tips and Tricks for DJI Phantom 3 Professional

As we mentioned above, DJI Phantom 3 4K camera builds 4K videos in MOV wrapper encoded with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, but it seems Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer does not like the way. The file type is a compressed format and not ideal for editing. Plus, the old version of Final Cut Pro like FCP 6/7, Adobe Premiere like Premiere Pro CS4/CS5/CS6, Avid Media Composer like Avid MC 4/5/6/7 can't support 4K video. An ultimate solution we found would be to transcode/compress DJI Phantom 3 4K files for FCP, Premiere, Avid.

Different from 720p/1080p videos, the conversion of 4K video is in a higher standard, a professional 4K Video Converter is what you need. Featured with the most advanced converting technology, Brorsoft 4K Video Converter for Mac is the optimal choice for you.

With it, you can easily convert DJI Phantom 3 4K to Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, Avid MC most compatible format in proper video settings. If you are working on Windows(Windows 8 included), please turn to Brorsoft Video Converter. Download the tool and start the 4K video conversion.

Tips and Tricks for 3D Robotics Solo Smart Drone

On-Board Recording

Vue Pro records 8-bit digital video in MJPEG or H.264 formats and 14-bit still imagery to a removable micro-SD card so you won’t lose any of your data to transmission loss. Imagery is saved to the micro-SD card and can be retrieved either from the card or by plugging the camera into a USB cable, where your computer will see it as a storage device.

H.264 is highly compressed. It is not designed as a format for editing. That's not where you want to start with editing for high quality results. Since iMovie most compatible format is Apple InterMediate Codec, the best way to edit H.264 videos from 3DR Solo in iMovie is to transcode all H.264 files to AIC .mov. A suggestion is to use Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac to get the work done.

Overall, it is the best H.264 to iMovie converter for Mac users. It offers optimized preset Apple InterMediate Codec .mov - ensuring maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with iMovie program. Besides, Apple ProRes, DNxHD, etc profiles are also provided to help you encode H.264 to FCP, H.264 to Avid Media Composer with the best quality. Now just download it and follow the steps below to finish the H.264 to AIC MOV conversion for using in iMovie under Mac OS X.
