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.
