    Default Using Final Cut Pro 7 with Sony Alpha NEX-F3

    I have several video clips from my new Sony Alpha NEX-F3, which are in the MTS format. I am using Final Cut Pro 7 (I have FCPX but it is hopeless), and when I bring the AVCHD clips into FCP 7, they appear grayed out in Log & Transfer and I can't select them. This happens from both NEX-F3 and NEX5N camera….

    If you're trying to ingesting Sony NEX footage in FCP but to no avail, or find some of the audio from the mts clips is missing, a best solution is encoding H.264/AVC video to Apple ProRes 422 before importing the Sony NEX footage to Final Cut Pro.

    Why convert H.264 to Apple ProRes Codec: ProRes is a line of intermediate codecs developed by Apple Inc, especially for use in post production of Final Cut Studio. For Final Cut Pro, Prores is simpler to decode than distribution oriented formats like H.264. Media files not optimized for Final Cut Pro are suggested to encode to Apple Prores codec before ingesting.

    Hi, I am also a Sony NEX F3 user. I could't import my avchd footages to FCP sometimes. Now, I have a way from Google to easily solve the trouble. My FCP has no any wrong message. Click the link How to Ingest Sony Alpha NEX-F3 1080p MTS to Final Cut Pro 7 on Mac to have a try.

    I also try to encode H.264/AVC video to Apple ProRes 422 with Pavtube HD Video Converter. It works well in convertering to Prores codec and then I import my Sony NEX footage in FCP efortlessly. Thanks for you sharing.
