7. What is exactly the difference between 'backup' and 'import' when importing files from HD cam?
A: For Backup and Import, Backup means copying the files from HD cam to the hard drive and save them on the path you chose on your Mac computer. When you want to edit these files on your hard drive, in this way, connecting the HD cam to the computer is not needed.
For Import functions, it means importing the files from the HD cam to the program directly. This also means you can not disconnect the cam and the program when editing the files.
8. How to import HD Cam MTS files from your local computer to the software?
A: Follow the next steps to import local files to the software:
In Resource tab:
Add a path where you save MTS files on the local computer via clicking + icon.
Select the path from the drop-down list and then MTS files on your local computer will be shown in Resource tab.
9.How can I simply take a video I have shot and use Final Cut to convert the video to another format without going through an editing phase?

Choose the Common Video option to select a video format. When done, just click Browse for Export Path button to find the converted files. :-)
10. How to create a movie for output?
A: In Movie tab:
Click the triangle button on the bottom menu.
Select For Lossless Output or For Conversion to create the blank movie.
Drag the MTS files from Resource tab or Camcorder tab to the blank movie for further output.
