Best Workflow for Canon XA25 and FCP 7-Edit Canon Vixia XA25 1080P AVCHD in FCP X

By learning this article, you will get the best solution about converting Canon XA25 60p/50p AVCHD MTS files to Apple Prores 422 for editing with Final Cut Pro smoothly.

Professional Canon XA25 captures Full HD 1080p video using an AVCHD codec. Many users take the videos via Canon XA25 to editors to do some postproduction. However, it is difficult for some common editing tools to support 1080p AVCHD videos. Actually, Final Cut Pro X mentions that it is working with MTS clips from camcorders on its official site, but some users still encounter troubles while imputing MTS files to FCP X/7.

"I record some video clips with my Canon XA25 camera, the footage looks good but it seems to be very difficult to import the AVCHD videos into FCP 7 to edit. I was told to convert Canon XA25 AVCHD to FCP MOV, but what app should I use and what settings for FCP are needed?"

If you’re in such a situation, and want to edit the Canon XA25 captured video with Final Cut Pro on Mac, you will need to convert XA25 AVCHD/MTS to ProRes codec that FCP supported.

Here Brorsoft MTS Converter for Mac is recommended as an ideal Mac MTS to ProRes conversion program to convert MTS video files to Apple ProRes with fast conversion speed and high output video quality. In addition to ProRes, it can also convert MTS and other regular video formats to MP4, MOV, WMV, MKV, FLV, AVI, 3GP, VOB and more. Just download this Mac converting software and follow the tips to convert camcorder MTS video to ProRes files on Mac (Yosemite, El Capitan included).

Converting Canon XA25 60p/50p AVCHD to Apple ProRes MOV for Final Cut Pro 6/7/X

Step 1: Load original MTS files

First, transfer your camcorder MTS files to your Mac through USB. Launch the MTS to ProRes Converter, and click the “Add” button to load the .mts videos. You can also use the drag-and-drop method to load the 1080p .mts files to the application UI.

Step 2. Choose output format

Press “Format” option and navigate the mouse cursor to choose “Format > Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)” as the best codec for FCP 6/7 and FCP X on Mac. The Mac AVCHD converter will transcode Canon XA25 MTS to FCP 6/7 or FCP X compatible MOV with ProRes as video codec in HD 1920×1080.

Tip: You can click “settings” button in the main interface to customize the output video’s parameters, such as resolution, frame rate, etc.

Step 3: Edit the 1080 60P/50P MTS video

By clicking “Edit” button, you can trim, crop the video, or add watermark, subtitles and adjust effect to the videos which you will convert.

Step 4: Start converting

Click the “Convert” icon under the preview window, and the Mac MTS to ProRes Converter will start transcoding Canon XA25 1080p 50p/60p MTS to Prores MOV for FCP(X) on Mac.

After the conversion, click the “Open” button to locate converted files, then load ProRes .MOV files in FCP (X). Now you can successfully and easily import Canon XA25 1080 60p/50p MTS footage to FCP 6/7 or FCP X for editing with best quality.

Additional Tips:

1. If you are also a FCP X user, before you try to do the conversion, don’t forget to make sure that you have installed the Apple ProRes Codec manually since the FCP X asks users to install it by themselves.

2. If you want to edit Canon XA25 MTS in iMovie/FCE, you just need to choose the “iMovie and Final Cut Express -> Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC) (*.mov)" in the second step.

3. If you want to batch conversion, the professional iMedia Converter for Mac is the best choice for you.
