Freely Transfer Panasonic AG-DVX200 MTS videos to FCP 7/X

How to load Panasonic AG-DVX200 AVCHD .mts to FCP 7 and FCP X on macOS High Sierra? This article offers you a simple way to edit Panasonic MTS videos in Final Cut Pro.


Recorded an hour long clip on my Panasonic AG-DVX200 recently. When importing the AVCHD clip to FCP X, I get the error, “Import Failed” “Stream Error at: blah blah blah”.

I’ve tried a number of things:
– ClipWrap will not convert the file.
– MPEG Streamclip does not do AVCHD files.
– I was able to import first half of the file (up to the glitch) with FCPX. However, I can’t import any other selection of the second half without the same error.

Did you ever meet such issue while dealing with Panasonic DVX200 MTS videos in FCP? Well, don’t blame the Final Cut Pro, the “Import from Camera…” option works just like “Log and Transfer”. The thing is, even FCP X does not work with the Canon or Panasonic AVCHD codec. As far as I know, to solve those problems, the most important piece of the equation is that transcoding AVCHD files to Final Cut Pro native format (Apple ProRes encoded .mov is highly recommended). Along with some help from the MTS Converter for Mac, it can be done.

What I used is Brorsoft MTS Converter for Mac which has Final Cut Pro native profile with five types of ProRes codecs- ProRes 422, ProRes 422(LT), ProRes 422(HQ), ProRes 422(proxy), ProRes 444. And it allows you freely change the video and audio parameters as you need. Of course, other codecs for NLEs are supplied such as AIC for iMovie, DNxHD for Avid, MPEG-2 for Premiere .etc. If you wanna get ProRes codec on PC, Brorsoft MTS Converter Windows version is your first choice. Now download the software and follow the guide below to start conversion.

Open Panasonic DVX200 MTS videos in Final Cut Pro

Step One: Install and run the Mac MTS to FCP Converter, you can click “Add Video” button (or “Add from folder”) to load AVCHD MTS source files from Panasonic DVX200.

Step Two: Click the “Format” bar and select Final Cut Pro> Apple PreRes 422(*.mov) as output format.

Tip: Go to “Settings” page and set proper video/ audio parameters. You can reset set the video size, bitrate and fame rate.

Step Three: Finally, tap “Convert” button to start converting Panasonic DVX200 AVCHD videos to ProRes .mov for Final Cut Pro on Mac. You can follow the conversion process from the pop-up windows.

When the conversion finished, check the generated ProRes .mov video, you will certainly be satisfied with its final video quality. It would be easier for you to edit your Panasonic AG-DVX200 AVCHD files in Final Cut Pro X or FCP 7.

Tutorial: Edit Sony Handycam HXR-NX30U MTS in Pinnacle Studio

This article will teach you how to freely import and edit Sony Handycam HXR-NX30U MTS in Pinnacle Studio without any trouble.

I am not a video professional, therefore I choose Pinnacle Studio as an easier tool for me to edit videos. And I was told Pinnacle Studio could support AVCHD files natively. But according to my own tests, Pinncale refused all my Sony HXR-NX30U MTS videos. That’s much fraustrated! After digging on Google, I seemed to find an ultimate solution to locate the issue successfully. If you are still struggling with it, keep reading.

Although, it claims that Pinnacle Studio can support AVCHD files, there are so many limits you are facing like the System Requirements: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.66 gHz or higher required for 1920×1080 AVCHD editing, 2GB system memory required for AVCHD and more. If you can’t meet these requirements, you will get troubles when importing .mts/.m2ts files to Pinnacle Studio for editing. To get Pinnacle Studio working with AVCHD footage beautifully, the best solution is to transcode Sony NX30U MTS to Pinnacle Studio favorable formats like AVI, WMV, etc. Apart from for easy editing, video in these formats comes out in a much smaller size.

Here comes Brorsoft MTS Converter. With it, you can effortlessly encode/re-encode AVCHD footage shot by Canon, JVC, Sony, Panasonic etc. cameras for smoothly importing and editing in various non-linear editing systems (NLE), including Pinnacle Studio 14/15/16/Ultimate, Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas, Cyberlink PowerDirector, Avid Studio, Windows Movie Maker and more. If you’re using a Mac, please turn to its equivalent Mac version – MTS Converter for Mac, which can help you solve the AVCHD and Mac incompatible issue. Now, download the software and follow the below guide to start conversion.

How to Open Sony HXR-NX30U MTS in Pinnacle Studio

<2>: Go to “Format” bar to select output format. Here we choose “HD Video” -> “AVI HD Video (*.avi)” as output, which seems to be the best one due to the great video quality but small size. Of course, MPG, MP4, WMV are also the proper formats for Pinnacle.

Panasonic HC-V770 MTS no sound in FCP X-Fixed

No audio output while importing Panasonic HC-V770 MTS clips to FCP X? This article will teach you how to freely edit Panasonic HC-V770 MTS videos in FCP X.

After upgrading to macOS High Sierra, recently Final Cut has stopped playing audio within MTS files, though it can be played well in QuickTime, VLC, etc. I saw a lot of users encountered such issues like me while importing MTS files to FCP.

“Hi. Please whenever I import my footage from Pansonic HC-V770 MTS to FCP X for editing, all i get is the video, no video at all. Even when i try to play it from monitor source, still no audio. But when i import to CS4, CS5 I get audio. Please help”

I have solved the issue, there was some kind of audio app called Perian running in the System Preferences which was causing issues with Final Cut audio. I am still experiencing instability with the program, but at least the audio now works as before. If you have Perian installed try disabling it in System Preferences/Perian. Also, uncheck the box to automatically update the program.

Next open Final Cut, Click Final Cut Pro in the menu bar and select Preferences.
Select General, Audio Units and click Validate on next Launch.
Quit Final Cut, re-open and try to import your footage. After doing this, it worked for me.

If you still can not get the audio output, you’d better get a third party program to encode Panasonic HC-V770 MTS to ProRes for FCP X editing. What I am recommended is Brorsoft MTS Converter for Mac.

With it, you can easily transcode Panasonic HC-V770 AVCHD to Apple ProRes 422, ProRes 4444 for Final Cut Pro on Mac within few clicks. Besides Apple ProRes codec, it also offers optimized codecs for other NLEs such as MPEG-2 for Premiere, DNxHD for Avid, AIC for iMovie and more. If you are a PC user, pls turn to Brorsoft MTSConverter windows version. Now, download the software on computer and follow the guide below to start conversion.

How to Edit  Panasonic HC-V770 MTS files in FCP X

Step 1: Download, install and launch the best Panasonic MTS to ProRes Converter to import your .mts/.m2ts footages to it.

Step 2: Click format bar to choose “Apple ProRes” codec for AVCHD videos. You are provided with five Apple ProRes options listed as below. You can choose a proper one that fit your needs best according to the main difference of the five ProRes codecs. You’re recommended to choose “Final Cut Pro -> Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)”, it’s best for FCP editing.

Step 3: You can click settings button in the main interface to adjust the output parameters, such as resolution, frame rate, etc, customize the parameters as you want.

Step 4: Hit “Convert” button to start transcoding Panasonic HC-V770 MTS to Apple ProRes codec on Mac OS X. This conversion process will finish soon. Afterwards, click the “Open” button to locate the output files and import to FCP X/7/6.
