Default Sony a7R AVCHD to FCP, Import Sony a7R AVCHD files to FCP X/7/6 for editing - 02-10-2018, 07:22 AM

"Hi there! I've got some 1920*1080 60p AVCHD footage shot with Sony's Alpha a7R mirrorless camera that I want to get into FCP X. My problem is that the FCP X seems not reading my a7R AVCHD media at all. Is there any plug in that I should install or do I need to transcode them to ProRes MOV files so that FCP X can recognize? Any ideas?"

Like Sony's Alpha a7 mirrorless camera, the a7R full frame camera records video files in AVCHD codec with maximum resolution 1920*1080 at 60p, 60i, 50p, 50i, 25p, and 24p. Plus, MP4 recording format is also available for smaller files for easier upload to the web. If you"ve captured some 60p AVCHD files with Sony a7R, you may find it's hard to open them in FCP X. In this case, we would recommend that you convert Sony a7R AVCHD to ProRes for FCP X. This requires third party software like UFUSoft HD Video Converter for Mac.

As the name implies, the UFUSoft HD Video Converter for Mac is a converter program designed for transcoding HD media, including camera and camcorder videos files to whatever format you need with best video and audio synchronization.
