Sony HXR-NX5U importing tips for Final Cut Pro, iMovie and FCE

Summary: With this awesome guide, you can smoothly import and edit Sony HXR-NX5U MTS files in FCP, iMovie, FCE by transcoding/converting MTS to an ideal editable format on Mac.

If you are new to Sony HXR-NX5U, you may be confused with the HXR-NX5U workflow. Here I’m looking at importing Sony HXR-NX5U footage into various non-linear editing systems (NLE): Final Cut Pro 6/7/X, iMovie and Final Cut Express. Keep reading for a brief how-to.

As far as I know, MTS, a highly compressed video format, is not a good editing format for NLE system including iMovie, Final Cut Express, Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, etc. Then how to import Sony HXR-NX5U videos to iMovie, FCP, iMovie for editing without any issue? Well, if you make the recordings editable before taking to the program, the incompatible error won’t happen any more. Here you can download and apply Brorsoft MTS Converter for Mac to achieve the goal effortlessly.

This Sony MTS Converter for Mac is the solid tool to help users to transcode AVCHD .MTS/M2TS files to a format you want on Mac OS X. It offers the optimal preset profiles for Final Cut Pro 6/7 and FCP X, Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, iMovie, FCE and more. And there is no need to worry about the quality loss. Plus, it also provides you the editing functions like trimming, cropping, adding watermark, etc.

Convert and import Sony HXR-NX5U MTS footage into FCP, iMovie, FCE

STEP 1: You need to download, install and run the smart Sony MTS Converter Mac and transfer your MTS recordings to the program for converting.

Tip: You can join several MTS clips together via checking the “Merge into one file” box.

STEP 2: Click on the “Format”bar and choose a best editable format.

a. For editing Sony HXR-NX5U MTS in FCP, select Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov) as the output format.

b. Choose iMovie and Final Cut Express > Apple Intermediate Codec(AIC) (*.mov) as output format, so that you can transcode Sony NX5U MTS to AIC .mov for editing in iMovie, FCE smoothly.

STEP 3: Adjust the video and audio parameters including the Bitrate of Video&Audio, Video Size, Sample Rate, Frame Rate, Audio Channels, etc., by clicking the Settings button for getting the best quality before starting conversion.

STEP 4: After the settings, click “Convert” button to start the Sony AVCHD MTS to FCP, iMovie, FCE conversion on Mac OS X.

Once the conversion finished, you can smoothly transfer the converted files to FCP/ iMovie/FCE.

    1, perhaps, fate like the season on the track from the clutch of reincarnation, in the parting of the ferry,Yang Liu Yiyi, then dance a willow leaves, no words, no absence,Just walk up and down that back in the evening sun, it was to become a degree from the War.Although at one corner, there is no long and arduous journey, but a few narrow streets, the rush of the day,But worth thousands of miles, lie among us, we are like two tiny trees grow on the other side,Day and night keep looking, keep looking at the years of vast, keep looking at each other growing old face,We are always looking forward, looking forward to once again concerned with his fate, hoping reunion.2, the gentle spring breeze, blowing open
