Best Camera 2016: Edit Panasonic Lumix LX100(3/18) AVCHD Files in FCP X

“Someone shot some 60p AVCHD video for us in high definition using a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 camera and I needed to convert those AVCHD file in order to use it for editing on Mac FCP X. I tried several converters, but couldn’t find one that could do what I wanted with good quality. Some of them produced files with terrible image, and others converted the audio a few frames behind the video no matter what settings I tried. So my question is, is there a very easy to use Lumix DMC-LX100 AVCHD Converter for Mac that could work perfectly for me (convert seamlessly)? Any recommendations? Thanks a lot.”

I heard someone always complains about the trouble of working Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 AVCHD MTS files with FCP X, actually, for directly importing to FCP X is not a good method. 

Regarding to the AVCHD codec, it is very popular in both the professional and consumer market. That means most non-linear editing software should have full support for the codec, but the thing is that users still have problems one or another while trying to open the Panasonic DMC-LX100 AVCHD footage in Final Cut Pro for further editing. 

In order to import and edit Panasonic DMC-LX100 AVCHD files in FCP X without crashing problem and avoid rendering, you’d better transcode the Panasonic DMC-LX100 AVCHD footages to FCP X native format. Pavtube Video Converter for Mac(read the review)is a professional AVCHD Converter, which can help you to convert Panasonic DMC-LX100 AVCHD to Apple ProRes for Final Cut Pro X.
