At CES 2011 in Las Vegas, JVC unveils JVC GS-TD1, the world’s first consumer camcorder to offer 1920×1080 Full HD 3D Recording. The new GS-TD1 uses two camera lenses and two 3.32 megapixel CMOS sensors – one for each lens – to capture three-dimensional images. JVC have developed a high-speed processor that can produce two simultaneous Full HD images. JVC’s other new HD Everio with 3D capabilities is the GZ-HM960, which turns any 2D footage into 3D. JVC’s new camcorder offers other shooting modes as well, including the widely used “Side-by-Side Format” for AVCHD (3D) and conventional AVCHD (2D) shooting.
So if you use JVC GS-TD1 for the 1920×1080 AVCHD (2D) recording and want to edit the 2D 1080i mts files on Mac with FCP/FCE, but AVCHD MTS is not the preferred format for Final Cut Studio. So if you want to edit JVC GS-TD1 2D AVCHD video with high quality on Mac, you can convert JVC GS-TD1 1080i MTS (2D) to FCP ProRes (*.mov) or H.264 MOV before editing.
Here is the step-by-step guide for you to import and edit JVC GS-TD1 AVCHD (2D) MTS to Final Cut Pro/FCP7/FCE on iMac/MacBook Pro with Mac OS X like Snow Leopard.
Step1. Load JVC GS-TD1 AVCHD (2D) videos to Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac.

Step2. Choose Apple ProRes (*.mov) or H.264 MOV (AVC) (*.mov) output format.
Click the “Format” option, choose the Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov) or QuickTime Movie Format > Apple InterMediate Codec (*.mov) as output format. Import JVC GS-TD1 AVCHD (2D) format to FCP/FCE without rendering for editing.
You can also choose Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas > MOV (AVC)(*.mov) for converting AVCHD videos from MTS to MOV with H.264/AVC as video codec for loading to Final Cut Studio.
Step3. Merge JVC GS-TD1 AVCHD (2D) files. (Optional)
Tick the checkbox for “Merge into one file”, and the JVC GS-TD1 1920×1080 AVCHD(2D) converter will join and combine the video clips into a single file as output.
Step4. Convert JVC 1920×1080 MTS (2D) to Apple ProRes MOV or H.264 MOV for Final Cut.
Click the convert button under the preview window, the Mac JVC 1080i AVCHD (2D) converter starts converting 2D JVC GS-TD1 1080i MTS videos to Apple ProRes MOV or H.246 .mov, and joining the MTS files for editing in Final Cut Studio.
After converting and merging the JVC GS-TD1 2D AVCHD (2D) files, just import the output files to Final Cut Studio and the video is in HD 1920×1080. You can also import the output videos to Final Cut Express (FCE) 4 for editing in full HD.
