The way of importing Panasonic Lumix GM5 AVCHD/MP4 to FCP X

Posted by on Thursday, 26 November, 2015

Summary: Have no idea of how to import Panasonic Lumix GM5 AVCHD/MP4 videos to FCP X? It’s a smart choice to read this article.

 The way of importing Panasonic Lumix GM5 AVCHD/MP4 to FCP X

After recording beautiful scenes or happy moments, many Panasonic Lumix GM5 users have the need of editing these AVCHD/MP4 recordings in FCP X on Mac 10.11. However, more and more photographers ran into the importing problem with Panasonic Lumix GM5 AVCHD videos in FCP X and got confused by these malfunctions.

“Last week I shot some video on Panasonic Lumix GM5 and imported the clips into Final Cut Pro X. I shot more footage this week, but when I try to import the clips they are not showing up in the import window (bottom half of window). What I now see is AVCHD “greyed out” and the only media available to import are a few jpg images on the camera. Any idea why this is happening? Thanks for your help. – dave, iMac”

The reasons to the problem are proberly these:

  • AVCHD file-structure isn’t ‘standard’ (as, the AVCHD-pkg isn’t on ‘top’-level of media; instead there are sub-folders, such as the CAM_MEM and CAM_SD in your screen shot).
  • If the AVCHD files whatever with the extension .mts, .m2t, .m2ts are encoded FCP X Log and Transfer unsupported video or audio codec, Final Cut Pro X won’t import AVCHD movies.
  • AVCHD FCP X support is available only on Intel-based Mac computers, if we try to import and edit AVCHD in Final Cut Pro on non Intel-based Mac, we will fail to import AVCHD files into Final Cut Pro even via Log and Transfer.
  • SD video recorded with AVCHD camcorders can’t be accessed in the Final Cut Pro Log and Transfer window. That is, if the AVCHD video is in SD video quality, we will fail to import AVCHD to Final Cut Pro X.

How to Fix the Importing Problem with AVCHD to FCP X.

Firstly, I’d love to offer you an easy free way to fix the importing problem. Your Panasonic Lumix GM5 allows you to transfer AVCHD files from internal memory to a SD card, then use SD card to import to Mac.

In addition to this, I prepare another way for you.

How to Watch or Share Hockey Videos on iPad/iPhone/YouTube/Vimeo

Posted by on Tuesday, 24 November, 2015

Summary: Do you want to watch your Hockey videos on iPad or iPhone? Your IOS devices may be not able to play these videos. This article will give you some tips in detail to achieve the smooth playback.

Many people have need of watching recordings from camcorders on iPad/iPhone or sharing them to YouTube/Vimeo after the Hockey Tournament. However, in most cases, people failed to play camcorders videos on IOS devices. The following paragraph is an example from the forum.

I have a Sony camera which records some Hockey video in XAVC format. I used a program to convert it to an iPad-friendly MP4 format and it now plays in iTunes on Mac but will not transfer to my 4th generation retina iPad. A message says the iPad cannot play the video. Any idea anyone?

Before giving the solution to the feedback, let’s figure out whether MP4 is iPad-friendly video format. I did a search for you about what formats iPad supports. Here is a list.

  • H.264 video up to 1080p, 30 frames per second, High Profile level 4.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;
  • XAVC-4 video up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;
  • Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format

Now you can see iPad only supports limited MP4 formats. In general, IOS is a closed system, so in order to play Sony videos on iPad, we need to convert MP4 to the most compatible format with proper parameters for iPad.

Now, I’m glad to offer you a FREE method to solve the problem.

Use iTunes to create an iPad compatible version. Select your Hockey video and then from the top menu click on “Advanced”, then on “Create iPad or Apple TV Version”.  This will make a fully compatible version of the video that can be synced to and played on the iPad.

If you still don’t get it from the content above. I recommend a professional iPad video converter for you - Pavtube Video Converter for Mac. There are hundreds of preset output profile settings in this program, including iPad, iPhone series. With this iPad video converter, you don’t even need to worry about if the output video is able to be played on iPad, this converter is very good at converting Sony videos to iPad/iPhone formats.

In the meantime, there is a built-in video editor in this iPad video converter. This feature will help you edit Sony videos to make your Hockey videos look better for uploading to YouTube or sharing to Vimeo. It also supports batch converting Sony videos and this function will save much time for you.

If you want a Windows version, please turn to Pavtube Video Converter.

Convert Canon XA35 Full HD AVCHD/MP4 to ProRes 422 LT/4444 for FCP 6/7

Posted by on Monday, 16 November, 2015

Summary: If you want to edit Canon XA35 Full HD AVCHD in FCP 6/7, you might need to take time to convert Full HD AVCHD before importing to FCP 6/7. The reason is FCP 6/7 can’t support Full HD AVCHD perfectly. And this article will show you an efficient method to solve the problem.

 Convert Canon XA35 Full HD AVCHD/MP4 to ProRes 422 LT/4444 for FCP 6/7

Many Canon XA35 users always run into some annoying problem when they are trying to import Canon XA35 Full HD AVCHD/MP4 files to FCP 7. The content below is an example form Apple forum.

Last week I shot some video on a Canon XA35 camera and imported the clips into Final Cut Pro 7. I shot more footage this week, but when I try to import the clips they are not showing up in the import window (bottom half of window). What I now see is AVCHD “greyed out” and the only media available to import are a few jpg images on the camera. Any idea why this is happening? Thanks for your help. 

I believe there is much more similar problem in the forum. The reason is there was a bug in early versions of FCP that caused it to not recognize the AVCHD files, so AVCHD files is always greyed out in FCP 7 on Mac. However, you can get to solve the problem by upgrading FCP 7 to the latest version FCP X. FCP X has fixed the bug. If you don’t want to spend more money on upgrading FCP, you can transcode AVCHD format to the format codec – Apple ProRes which is the most suitable format for FCP 7 to solve the problem.

Here I recommend a professional video converter for you - Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac. This video converter can not only convert Canon XA35 Full HD AVCHD files to ProRes, but also transcode Canon XA35 Full HD MP4 videos to ProRes for editing in FCP 7. Meantime, this program also can transform Canon XA35 Full HD AVCHD/MP4 files to other video editing applications, such as PremiereiMovie, etc. If you want to know more about this software, please review Top 5 Best HD Video Converter for Mac

How to edit Sony A68 XAVC S/AVCHD/MP4 in DaVinci Resolve 12/11 smoothly

Posted by on Wednesday, 11 November, 2015

Summary: Have you met some problem with editing XAVC S footage recorded by Sony A68 in DaVinci Resolve 12/11? I’ll concentrate on fix the issue for you in this guidance.

davinci resolve How to edit Sony A68 XAVC S/AVCHD/MP4 in DaVinci Resolve 12/11 smoothly

I got some footage from the Sony A68 camera. Resolve should natively play the XAVC S codec. But it doesn’t! I can hear the sound, but the picture is black. Just a black window. I’m running Resolve 12 on Mac, and the footage is XAVC S in a .mxf container.

I believe lots of Sony A68 users met the same problem above formerly. Actually, the reason why the editing window in DaVinci Resolve 12/11 is black is very simple. First of all, let’s learn about what XAVC S format is. XAVC uses level 5.2 of H.264/MPEG-4 AVC which is the highest level supported by that video standard. There are three types of XAVC format, and XAVC S is one of them.(Another two are XAVC L and XAVC I) Though XAVC is in the supported formats listof DaVinci Resolve official website, Resolve doesn’t support all types of XAVC formats, so sometimes your find audio lost or the black picture.

In order to edit Sony A68 XAVC S videos in DaVinci Resolve smoothly, we need to transcode XAVC S format footage to the most suitable format for Resolve – DNxHD(*.mov). Now, I’d love to introduce a professional video converter for you - Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac. This program can not only convert XAVC S videos to DNxHD(*.mov), but also transform another two file formats from Sony A68 – AVCHD, MP4 to DaVinci Resolve. It also can enable to trim your XAVC S videos to keep the most fantastic part. By the way, we offer the Windows version, please turn toPavtube HD Video Converter.
