These days, more and more people have their own camcorders to record some of the great moments in daily life. The recorded videos are usually saved in AVCHD MTS/M2TS file format, which can be played with ALLPlayer, MPlayer, VLC, PotPlayer and other media players. But there are still some problems, for example:
“Hey, I have some MTS footages recorded with my NXCAM NEX-FS100EK. Now I want to edit them with FCP on Mac. However, I can’t even import MTS videos to Final Cut Pro. What’s the problem? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!”
Well, this happens mainly because that MTS is not the preferred format by FCP 6/7/X. In fact, anyone who needs to edit MTS/M2TS videos in Final Cut Pro would usually run into such incompatibility problem. Luckily, Jihosoft Studio recently developed powerful Video Converter for Mac to help solve this problem. By using it, you can easily convert MTS to Apple ProRes 422 codec for FCP native editing.
