Convert Sony HDR PJ790V MTS clips to ProRes for editing in FCP



Description: This article aims to lead you to resurrect corrupted MTS videos from camera SD card, and transcode Sony HDR PJ790V MTS footage to edit in FCP on Mac easily and efficiently.


Q: "I shot some videos of my friend's wedding but the SD card was corrupted, so I could not download videos from the card. I’ve tried many ways to copy the video to FCP but still could not get it to work. The files shout be in MTS together with many garbage which I can found in card but cannot log and transfer. Can someone help?"


Many of us may encounter many issues when downloading footages from cameras: like this camera is not supported by Windows/Mac; like the SD card may not be formatted correctly although it works as it's good when shooting, in any case we just can’t move the videos to computer. Usually if we lose the original file structure, the footages cannot be downloaded smoothly.


So what can we do to resurrect the MTS footages if the SD card corrupted?

Don’t worry, according to my experience, the footages should be save in a PRIVATE folder inside your card; so use a card reader and plug it to your computer, run this Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac to extract the real videos.
