You don't actaully need the camera. If the DVD is not copyrighted simply put the DVD disc into your mac and copy the biggrest file (usually marked video.ts) You can then drag and drop this onto your Final Cut timeline.

Best Mac MXF File Converter-Import/Edit Canon MXF Files to ProRes 422 MOV to FCP

MXF file format comes from like Panasonic HVX200/HPX300, Canon XF300/XF305, Sony EX camera, etc. It is not compatible with many programs just like Apple Final Cut Pro. So Convert MXF file to FCP MOV Video is a necessary step to do if you want watch your video from your camcorder which export mxf file.

And we know that Apple ProRes 422 , Apple ProRes 4444,introduced in Final Cut Studio, was advertised to one of the codecs to result in less compression and higher data rate/higher quality files for HD editing in Final Cut Pro.

Below is the step-by-step guide for you to quickly Convert/Edit MXF to Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov) Final Cut Pro on Final Cut Studio,Final Cut Pro 7 on Mac.

Step 1. Add MXF videos to Aunsoft MXF Video Converter for Mac.

Here we choose Apple ProRes 422(HQ) (*.mov) as output format. (The Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy) codec is intended for offline editing and contains 30 percent of the data rate of Apple ProRes 422, and I recommend you to select Apple ProRes 422(HQ), Apple ProRes 422(LT) MOV for outputting.)

Step 3. Merge Canon MXF files. (Optional)
Tick the checkbox for "Merge into one file", and the Mac MXF Video Converter will join and combine the video clips into a single file as output.

Step 4. Convert MXF to Apple ProRes MOV for Final Cut.

After Converting and Merging the MXF files, just import the output Apple PreRes 422 .mov files to Final Cut Pro 7 or Final Cut Pro 6 for editing and the video .Optimize your workflow and save time with the Apple ProRes compression for Final Cut Pro. You can also import the output videos to Final Cut Express (FCE) 4 for editing in full HD.

Import MTS to Final Cut Pro X-Convert Sony PJ30V 60p MTS to H.264 MOV for...


The Sony PJ30V has more compression options than your average camcorder. Most of its video is recorded using AVCHD compression, which is today's industry standard. The HDR-PJ30V has 32GB of internal flash memory and it can record Full HD video using 60p, 60i, or 24p frame rates. The PJ30V comes with the same version of Picture Motion Browser (PMB) software that shipped with the Sony HDR-CX700V, which we reviewed earlier this year. The new version of the software is nearly identical to previous versions of PMB, except version 5.5 does allow you to import and work with 60p and 24p clips (something that is essential for the HDR-PJ30V).

Get Final Cut Pro 5.04 to communicate with my XH A1


Many HDV cameras and decks are able to play and record DV as well as the higher-resolution HDV format. Additionally, many of these HDV devices will attempt to automatically change their settings to match the format of the tape that it's playing. Here are some tips for using these types of devices with Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
Tip: Make explicit settings on your HDV device. Instead of using an "Auto" setting, make your own settings on your HDV device to keep the communication going between it and Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express. This also helps Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express keep things running smoothly with HDV devices that handle both DV-NTSC and DV-PAL.
For example, say you're using an HDV deck to capture footage from a tape that was recorded as DV-NTSC. Before capturing in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, make sure that you set the deck to DV mode specifically—don't rely on Auto mode. With some devices, you may need to disconnect it from FireWire to change the mode.
For a common capture workflow, this sequence of steps can provide the best results:
  1. Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express if it's open.
  2. Insert your tape into your HDV deck or camcorder.
  3. Use the device's menus to set it to match the format that's recorded on the tape.
  4. Connect your HDV device to your computer with a FireWire cable.
  5. Open Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  6. Choose an Easy Setup for DV or HDV (whichever matches the format recorded on your tape).
  7. Proceed to Log and Capture.
Tip: Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before changing modes. It's generally a good idea to quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before you change the mode on your device from DV to HDV, or from HDV to DV, and then re-open the application again.
Tip: Use an Easy Setup to play back non-default HDV format footage on your HDV device. You can use Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express to make your HDV device play back footage in its non-default HDV format. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i50. Or perhaps you have a 1808i50 HDV device and you want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i60. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Connect your camera to your computer.
  2. In Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, choose an HDV preset Easy Setup that matches the format of the tape's footage (you don't need to restart Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express).
  3. Your device's LCD display should automatically display a switch to 60 or 50, indicating the type of media that's being played.
Playing back non-default DV format footage on your HDV device You can also use your HDV device to play back footage in its non-default DV format too. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-PAL. Or maybe you have a 1080i50 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-NTSC. If so, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that your device is in DV/DVCAM mode.
  2. Put your device into Play/Pause mode, then open the Log and Capture window in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  3. Make sure that your device's LCD (or other readout screen) displays the same format as your tape or Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express will misinterpret what type of device you have.
Tip: Avoid recording both HDV and DV formats on the same tape. Use separate tapes whenever you want to record in a different format. If you need to record over existing footage in a different format (for example, you have a tape with DV-PAL on it, but you want to record over it with HDV 1080i50), it's a good idea to black and code the tape, or completely record over the old footage with contiguous recording in the new format. If the tape contains even a second of, say, DV in the middle of an HDV tape (or vice versa), it could cause unexpected results later when you try to capture video from that tape.
