Convert Sony HDR-XR105E AVCHD to FCP for Edit
  • I once bought a Sony HDR-XR105E handycam camcorder with built-in 80GB hard disc drive. For busy working, I haven’t been gotten a chance to utilize but lent to my friend until a couple of days ago. It is a full HD camcoder featured with 5.1 surround sound recording, 2.7 inch wide clear photo plus LCD with easy-to-use touch screen. Despite not as advanced as those new models, it is just enough for me to record some films. But my problem is that I am unable to import them into Final Cut Express. Then I search for it on Google and informed a professional converter that I have missed. The format of AVCHD file type shot by Sony HDR-XR105E cannot be recognized by Final Cut Pro. After tried some converting programs and noticed a little quality degraded on my conversion, for that I got rather frustrated. Finally a mate recommended me use MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac. Perfectly keep my settings similar to those for the original footages, I am pretty satisfied with the almost lossless image quality. Thanks to MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac, for converting Sony HDR-XR105E AVCHD to FCP MOV successfully without loss quality. The converted MOV files dealt with FCP are incredibly and stunningly clarified for playback on my Mac. So, in the following guide I would like to make you clear about how it works with those who are also facing or still confused about such problems.

    Click the "Settings" button, in the parameter setting interface, you can adjust audio and video parameters like codec, bitrate, frame rate, and audio channel.

  • 2. Select the desired file from the standard Choose a File window. Once the desired file is located and highlighted, press the "Choose" button. It may take a few seconds or even minutes depending on the file size. If the file is on an external hard drive, it will take even longer.

  • Tips
  • 1 Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac is a professional primary editing software as well as a AVCHD to MOV converter. Click the “Editor” button on the right hand of “Add”. You are also able do trimming, cropping, watermarking, adjusting contrast, brightness, saturation, deinterlacing(if you need) and audio replacing before the conversion begin.
