As we all know, Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 record 1920 x 1080 videos in AVCHD Lite format, and save them as .mts or .m2ts extension. But there may be some problem you will meet if you put G3 AVCHD Lite .mts/.m2ts file into Final Cut Pro for editing.

As you know, FCP supports Apple Prores Codec natively but refuse the importing of AVCHD Lite from Cameras directly. Both the container and codec of AVCHD Lite are too difficult to handle, thus if you want to import Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 AVCHD Lite to FCP without any trouble, the best way is to get the Panasonic AVCHD Converter for Mac to transcode AVCHD to FCP compatible format before importing.

GoPro HD Hero Video Tips with After Effects CS4/5/6

GoPro HD Hero makes it easy for people to shoot activity videos and pictures. To confirm high quality output the GoPro Hero takes MP4 as its output format. However, that is a bad news that the .mp4 file type encoded in mpeg4 produced by the GoPro is not supported by After Effects CS4/CS5/CS6.

As the MP4 file type is a compressed and not an ideal editing format for Adobe, the best way is to convert your Gopro MP4 files to a AE friendly format. And then a 3rd party software is needed. Personally, I have used Pavtube iMedia Converter for Mac one year, and it’s a very affordable, fast, easy to use one software. It can help me convert Gopro mp4 files to AE CS4/5/6 compatible format, make Gopro MP4 footage working well in After Effects CS4/5/6.

Working with Sony F3 XDCAM EX Footage in Final Cut Pro

Posted by on Monday, 23 September, 2013

Q: I was surprised to learn that Sony F3 MXF files are not natively supported by FCP – am I mistaken? It seems like the only way to transcode the to ProRes is to use Final Cut Pro with the XDCAM plugin? But I haven’t been able to find it… does this still exist. How can I import the MXF file from F3 into FCP?

Sony F3 is from the EX family and will be using the SxS cards we currently have. It will shoot natively at 35Mb/s in 4:2:0. There are multiple configurations you can add on, the obvious is to mount a NanoFlash to get higher data rates at 4:2:2, and they plan to make use of Dual-Link technology, achieving 4:4:4 colorspace. That makes it compatible with Sony’s cinema lineup of the F35 and SRW-9000PL. Sony F3 XDCAM camcorders’ video format is MXF, however, as above, using MXF footage with FCP is a big problem as MXF is not compatible with Final Cut Pro (including FCP 6/7 and FCP X).

Of course, you can use XDCAM Transfer and refer to the guide here. Thinking the procedure is too complex? If you want to easily edit Sony F3 XDCAM MXF recordings in Final Cut Pro on Mac, you first need to convert Sony F3 MXF video to FCP native format like ProRes 422 codec. This is a common format developed by Apple. ProRes 422 is intended for non-linear editing with Apple Final Cut Pro. It retains higher quality when you convert MXF to ProRes for FCP. Below are some useful tips for you and you will know how to import and edit Sony F3 XDCAM MXF to Final Cut Pro on Mac.

1.Download Pavtube XDCAM Converter for Mac. This is excellent software which can help you convert Sony F3 XDCAM MXF video to ProRes for FCP 6/7 and FCP X. Besides, it supports many other formats for output.

2.Install and launch the Professional XDCAM MXF to FCP Converter for Mac, import the MXF video from Sony F3.
