Import AVCHD to Final Cut Pro to Apple Prores codec
How to Convert AVCHD, MTS, M2TS files to FCP/FCE Compatible ProRes/AIC?
"Is buying Final Cut Pro the only way to get the ProRes codec? Or by chance is Final Cut Express and Quicktime Pro enough? Or by chance is there a secret codec somewhere that you can download? How can i import my canon avchd files to FCP?"
ProRes 422 is a standard-definition and high-definition lossy video compression format developed by Apple Inc. for use in post production. Final Cut Studio is the most popular video editing software on Mac owning to its flexible structure, better workflow and powerful editing ability.
Generally speaking, the best way to get it is to have the Final Cut Studio 2 install discs. Now, we saw the release of the ProRes Decoder tool for QuickTime. According to Apple, this tool will allow QuickTime to play Apple ProRes 422 files, using the codec that provides "visually lossless, uncompressed HD video at SD data rates" for Final Cut users. The Mac update/plug-in can be downloaded for free from Apple's support downloads website, and if you are using QuickTime on Windows, there's a separate download.
In fact, FCP still doesn't have a better managing of AVHCD video files, especially in PowerPC-based Macs. That is to say Final Cut Pro on Mac with PowerPC processor will not trans-code AVCHD files to ProRes 422. Moreover, directly importing H.264 or AVHCD files to Final Cut Pro will cost long time with bad effect. So you'd better convert the AVCHD files to ProRes 422, then imported to FCP easily.
