Convert Canon XA25 AVCHD MTS/MP4 to Final Cut Pro X

Canon XA25 Professional HD Camcorder is a compact "run-and-gun" camera that is suitable for ENG, event coverage, independent and documentary filmmaking. The camera features a 1/2.84", 1920 x 1080 CMOS sensor that captures video at various frame rates up to 59.94p, including a 24p mode for a more cinematic feel. The integrated Canon 20x HD Optical zoom lens has a 35mm equivalent zoom range of 26.8 to 576mm and features an 8-bladed iris to render highlights in a more natural manner.


So if you use Canon XA25 for the 1920×1080 AVCHD recording and want to edit the Canon XA25 mts files on Mac with FCP 6/7/X, you could find that Canon XA25's recording AVCHD MTS files are not the preferred format for Final Cut Studio.
