Transcode/Edit SD900 50/60 AVCHD MTS to ProRes for FCP X
I have recently bought a Panasonic HDC-SD900 myself for its high definition and enjoy shoting videos with it. But I found a problem when editing the videos on my Mac because FCP X can not recognize the 1920x1080p 50 HD in AVCHD recording format shot with my camcorder. Then I searched on the Internet and found that Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac is 2011 Best Convention Tool for its extreme conversion speed and optimal output file parameter setting option.
