Which video editing tool do you think is the most useful on your Mac? I believe most of Mac users will choose Final Cut Pro. It seems that Apple has succeeded to capture their customers with this powerful and popular video editing tool.
Actually, Final Cut Pro helps you edit your videos with all kinds of editing function. However, it has a limitation of input format. If you want to import camcorder MTS video files to FCP, you have to transcode MTS to Apple ProRes, which can be imported and edited in FCP.
Although the latest version of Final Cut Pro, FCP X supports more video formats for input (include MTS), it is reported that 1080 50/60p MTS file is still not able to be imported directly.
What is 1080 50/60p? 1080 50/60p and 1080 50/60i which is better in picture presentation?
1080p is a superior grade of HD video standards, and this kind of video usually has a 1920×1080 screen resolution. Letter ‘p’ stands for ‘Progressive Scan’, while letter ‘i’ in 1080 50/60i stands for ‘Interlaced Scan’. Generally speaking, 1080 50/60p MTS video performs better than 1080 50/60i MTS when being played in a same player.
Now, the problem is how to import 1080 50/60p MTS files to Final Cut Pro X. Here, I will share a great camcorder tool with you, and you will find it of great use to convert 1080 50/60p MTS videos for FCP X.
