Solution to importing Sony Nex-5N 60P AVCHD to Final Cut Pro

Summary: Here is a quick step by step process to get your AVCHD 60P footage from Sony Nex-5N to work with FCP smoothly.

We have been testing out Sony NEX- 5N camera for an upcoming documentary. The Sony Nex 5N will shoot 60P in 1920 X 1080. This is a first for a smaller interchangeable lens camera. Our first tests gave us some pretty bad results. We found that most of the problems lie within the transfer 60p AVCHD to Final Cut Pro.

The reason that you can’t successfully ingest those recorded AVCHD footages on 1080 60P/50P format to Final Cut Pro is limited by the FCP itself. Currently 1080/60p or 1080/50p footage is a very non-standard format and it’s unsupported in FCP 6/7 even the latest FCP X, so they have to be converted into ProRes MOV. Obviously, we need to get some help from a Sony AVCHD Converter.

Here we recommend Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac. It supports transcoding all Sony 1080 60P/50P AVCHD MTS files to Apple ProRes 422 so that you can easily import the Sony AVCHD footages to Final Cut Pro X, Final Cut Pro 6/7 for editing on Mac. This will help you import the file correctly and saving the rendering time. If you just have the problem about editing Sony NEX-5N AVCHD 50/60p videos in Final Cut Pro, download the Mac MTS Converter and check out the brief guide below.

Transcode Sony Nex-5N AVCHD to ProRes for FCP

Step 1. Load Sony 1080p MTS to the MTS Converter

Launch the MTS to ProRes Converter on Mac, and click the “Add” button to load the .mts videos. You can also use the drag-and-drop method to load the 1080p .mts files to the application UI.

Step 2. Choose output format

Press “Format” option and navigate the mouse cursor to choose “Format > Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)” as the best codec for FCP 6/7 and FCP X on Mac. The Mac Sony MTS converter wills transcode Sony Nex-5N MTS to FCP 6/7 or FCP X compatible MOV with ProRes as video codec in HD 1920×1080.

Step 3: Adjust video, audio settings

You can click “settings” button in the main interface to customize the output video’s parameters, such as resolution, frame rate, etc.

Step 4. Edit the Sony MTS video

By clicking “Edit” button, you can trim, crop the video, or add watermark and adjust effect to the videos which you will convert.

Trim – Choose to reserve the part you need. Just choose the chapter which you need to trim, to set “start time” or “end time”, type the portion which you want to save.

Crop – Remove black edges of your video or just get the scale of this video you want.

Effect – Adjust the effects by adjusting the parameters, such as:

1) Deinterlacing – If there are some stripes on the picture, you can check this option to make a better picture effect. (Checked by default)

2) If you want to get 3D effect, just enable this function and do settings.

Step 5. Start the MTS to ProRes conversion

Click the “Convert” icon under the preview window, and the Mac MTS to ProRes Converter will start transcode Nex-5N 1080p 50p/60p MTS to Prores MOV for FCP(X) on Mac.

After the conversion, click the “Open” button to locate converted files, then load ProRes .MOV files in FCP (X). Now you can successfully and easily import Sony Nex-5N 1080 60p/50p MTS footage to FCP 6/7 or FCP X for editing with best quality.
