Help with AVCHD in Avid-Basic workflow to get AVCHD footage from Sony FS700 into Avid Media Composer on Mac

Summary:Brorsoft MTS to Avid Converter for Mac does a good job in converting Sony FS700 AVCHD to Avide Media Composer preferred DNxHD format. Learn this article , you can easy import and edit Sony FS700 1080 60p (50p for PAL)full HD AVCHD videos to Avid Media Composer 6.5/6.0/5.5/5.0 without rendering or any other issues on Mac OS X.

Despite being similar to the FS100 and a higher model number, the FS700 is not a replacement for the FS100 nor an upgrade model. The FS700 is a separate model with it’s own feature set.FS700 can shoot at up to 960 frames per second. Now there are already quite a few cameras out there that can do this, but most of them are considerably more expensive and specialised. Above 240 frames per second the resolution of the FS700′s video is reduced, but when you get down to 240 fps and below the FS700 shoots at full 1920×1080 resolution. The nearest competition that can do this is Red’s Epic which will set you back around 8 times the price of the FS700 for a fully usable shooting package and Epic crops into the sensor for it’s high speed modes making getting wide angle slow-mo tricky.

While you edit 1080p50/1080p60 recordings from camcorder further, you will encounter some issues of importing and editing these AVCHD 1080p files on your Mac like the below user.

"Just bought a Sony FS700 to shoot HD video and edit on my Quad Core Mac running Media Composer 5.5.1. Can anyone tell me the basic workflow? I can't even get the camera to show up on the desktop when connected via the USB cable supplied. The software that came with it is only for PC. I am frustrated. I'm an experienced pro editor, but this workflow is new to me. Please help!"

As we all know, Avid doesn't do 1080p60. Very few NLE's do. Actually, 60fps at 1080 is a non-standard format and Avid only works with standard film and broadcast formats. Although, Avid MC has added some plug-ins, actually background converters for the high-definition video format AVCHD, the importing process are unbelievably slow. In order to import the AVCHD to Avid MC for editing, the easy workaround is to transcode 60p MTS to Avid compatible video formats DNxHD .mov.

OK! Brorsoft MTS to Avid Converter for Mac does a good job in converting Sony FS700 AVCHD to Avide Media Composer preferred DNxHD format. Following share a tutorial on importing Sony NEX-FS700 AVCHD to Avid Media Composer 6.5 Mac with you ,wish it will do great helps for you !

    We've just got this camera where I work and we just installed the AVCHD plug in, AMA-linked to the files, and transcoded at 10:1.

    That way there's no import time, there's no need to convert first, and you can edit comfortably at 10:1, as it doesn't take so much processing power, and then it re-links accurately once your edit is done.

    Wetting my hair through my heart, love is like a seed in spring awakening, growth,Many new leaves swaying beaming style, you know? That is my hope and pray folded years.3, summer passion brewing in the mountains, Jumping round clouds, waves in the river, setting off a blossoming spray,My love is blooming, like waves in the surging,I also love exile, like birds in flying.When busy, you will be placed between the mind, to see how I live and struggle,During leisure, grinding the ink paper shop, miss walking in between the lines, clear Full of joy bloomMayday earth, wind with warm summer fragrance, with vitality,From my side slowly floating past, stop in your window, your side dense,You're many flowers bloom, it is you I
