I have have been using FCPX for several months. Basically I must use the media import command to ingest the footage (Canon C100 Mark II MTS videos ), which sometimes will make the FCP X jerk. I’ve read that some editors rewrap using Clip Wrap and other programs before importing Canon C100 Mark II MTS videos to FCP. That sounds fair.
The only reason I can see the need for re-wrapping is to make the editing process smooth. After testing almost all kind of third party programs online including Clip Wrap, I finnally got a powerful but simple program for you-Brorsoft MTS Converter for Mac.

With it, you effortlessly encode/re-encode AVCHD MTS footage shot from Canon C100 , C100 Mark II to FCP highly compatible ProRes MOV, ensuring maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with Final Cut Pro X or FCP 7. Besides, its also exports the optimized codecs for NLEs like AIC for iMovie, DNxHD for Avid, MPEG-2 for Premiere, .etc. The most important thing is that its Windows version also offers Apple ProRes codec. Now, download the software on computer and follow the guide below to start conversion.
