Sony A77 II Workflow within Final Cut Pro X/7/6 on Mac OS X ( El Capitan)

Read following I will show you how to transcode Sony A77 Mark II MTS Footage to ProRes MOV for Final Cut Pro in detail. 

The a77 II is a fantastic sports, action and wildlife camera and one of only a handful of cameras that can successfully use continuous AF during video capture. Its high speed shooting and continuous AF capabilities are on par with far more expensive, pro-level bodies, though it has some limitations. 

As many users get the Sony A77 Mark II , more problems are coming up: some of them have the need to import 60p AVCHD from Sony A77 II to FCP for editing on Mac OS X, but they always meet the importing and editing issues on Mac OS X(Yosemite & El Capitan included). 

Well, in fact, it’s not a "fresh" problem we've met when getting 1080 60p/50p AVCHD clips into FCP. The reason that you can't successfully ingest those recorded AVCHD footages on 1080 60P 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 X. In order to import Sony A77 II media to Final Cut Pro for smoothly editing, you can use 3rd-party software to re-wrap and convert 60p/50p MTS footage to ProRes encoded .mov format first, which is a native format for FCP. It's a great way to achieve your goal smoothly. 


Here we recommend Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac. It supports transcoding all Sony A77 II AVCHD MTS files to Apple ProRes, so that you can easily import the AVCHD raw footage 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. Besides, more output formats like AIC for iMovie/FCE, DNxHD for Avid MC, MPEG-2 for Adobe Premiere Pro, etc are also supported. If you just have the problem about editing Sony A77 Mark II videos in Final Cut Pro, download the Mac MTS Converter and check out the brief guide below.
