You may often run into incompatibility issue when transferring AVCHD footage to Final Cut Pro, for example:

"Can FCPX import AVCHD files directly, or do they still need to be converted first? I have MTS files from a Sony FS700camcorder that are in AVCHD that are grayed out when I try to import them."

As we know, Final Cut Pro is a great video editing app for Mac users to edit camcorder videos on Mac OS X (Mountain Lion, Mavericks). However, FCP supported video formats are limited to MP4, MOV, M4V and DV. If we want to import MTS from Sony FS700 to Final Cut Pro for editing, we'll need to convert MTS to Final Cut Pro friendly video formats.
