Thread: FCP sequence preset after converting from AVCHD

    Default FCP sequence preset after converting from AVCHD

    Hi
    I've just converted some AVCHD .mts files to .mov using voltaicHD ready to edit in final cut. I'm not sure though which sequence preset setting I should now use in my audio/video settings in final cut.
    Any help greatly appreciated!

    Depending which version of Final Cut you have, you shouldn't need to convert AVCHD before editing.

    Pick the settings you want to end up with as FC will convert the footage for you. Otherwise I would use the HDV preset.

    To clarify my statement that Final Cut can edit AVCHD, this is only if you use the "Log and Transfer" to import the footage. As far as I know it doesn't edit directly from .mts files.

    Thanks - yes, I've read up about that. I'm on FCP 5 at the moment which doesn't seem to have the log and transfer facility.

    Ah, sorry, bad news I'm afraid. It's only V6 and after that Final Cut can Log and Transfer native AVCHD.

    One way around it would be to import with imovie 9 (if you have it).
