****************************

About XDCAM

XDCAM, introduced by Sony in 2003, has four different products lines – the XDCAM SD, XDCAM HD, XDCAM EX and XDCAM HD422, which differ in encoder, frame size, container and recording media. Designed for heavy-duty field acquisition, Sony XDCAM camcorders provide the excellent picture quality, operability and reliability. Besides that, Sony XDCAM camcorders offer a wide range of innovative features that maximize the benefits of nonlinear disc media.

Sony XDCAM camcorders usually record MXF and MP4 format video, and it usually use MPEG2 codec, this codec is not good for editing in FCP X, and you will encounter importing and codec problems when you try to import Sony XDCAM footage to Final Cut Pro X.

About Final Cut Pro X

FCP X (Final Cut Pro X) is the most popular video editing software on Mac, it can't surpport Sony XDCAM HD High-Definition Camcorders PDW-F800, PDW-700, PDW-F355L etc. MXF files, you need a Sony XDCAM to FCP X Converter for Mac to help you convert/transcode Sony XDCAM MXF/MP4 files to FCP X (included FCP, FCP 6/7) compatible format Apple ProRes 422 MOV for editing on Mac.

Import Sony XDCAM media to FCP X issues

Q1. I just downloaded the trial version FinalCut X. I've tried to imort video both with XDCam browser, and straight from an external hard drive and gotten the same blank geen screen results. I really think I can work with this software if I could just find out what I am missing. Updated eveything when I downloaded the software. Can someone please help?

Q2. Hi I'm a TV cameraman and I need to export my edited job from FCP X back to my sony XDCAM F800 camera. I could do this on FCP 6 and 7 back it doesn't seem to work on X does anybody how to do this or any plugins so I can export back to XDCAM.

Q3. How do I import PDW F800 .mxf files (from my hard drive) into Final Cut Pro? I have tried log & transfer, it doesn't seem to work. Tried XDCAM transfer tool, doesn't work either. Any solutions?

Q4. I'd like to import and edit .mxf video files in Final Cut Pro, what plug-in do I need to install? Log and Transfer doesn't work because .mxf files are gray out not allowing me to select it.

Q5: I've been given some MXF files that were made by a Sony XDCAM camera. How do i import those files to FCP? I read a bit and I concluded to Calibrated. Is there another way, maybe a freeware utility?

As far as I know, FCP X best supported video format is "Apple ProRes 422 codec MOV format", so the best way to solve Sony XDCAM importing and codec problem is to convert Sony XDCAM media footage to ProRes for editing in Final Cut Pro X (or FCP, FCP 6/7).

Summary: This article introduces the best solution to change 3D MTS to 3D MKV format on Windows or Mac for playing, storing or sharing with others.


3D movie is more and more popular, many people like it because it feels so real. Now my Sony Camcorder outputs 3D .mts or .m2ts but I would prefer to change them into 3D video such as Matroska Video- MKV file keeping orginal quality. As mts is bigger than an mkv with file the same contents, when repacking an m2ts into an mkv, I can remove any audio streams they don't want. And this mkv format has better compatibility with device like a HTPC, Popcorn Hour or a Western Digital player. Is there any way to convert 3D MTS to 3D MKV format?

The solution is very simple, people just need a 3D AVCHD Converter to change 3D mts videos to 3D mkv.

Having the same problem with backuping, playing and sharing 3D .mts or .m2ts files? Let's go on a little video lover's escapade into the world of digital video and free download the cool tools above for changing 3D mts to 3D MKV format.


*****************************

Here provide the way converting 3D MTS to 3D MKV on Windows:

Note: If you're a Mac user, pls view the 3D MTS on Mac workflow.

Step 1: Connect your video camera/camcorder to your PC and then it should appear on the desktop as a new disk. You're suggested to copy the videos to your PC's hard-drive before converting or editing them.

Step 2: Launch the 3D MTS to 3D MKV Converter. Click "Add video" or "Add from folder" to browse your computer hard disc and add the 3D .mts or 3D .m2ts files you want to convert. Batch conversion supported by this 3D MTS/M2TS Converter, you can load several AVCHD media files at one time.

Step 3: Choose 3D MKV as the output format

From the "Format" drop-down list, you are suggested to follow the path "3D Video > MKV Side-by-Side 3D Video(*.mkv)" for converting 3D MTS to side-by-side 3D MKV video.

*****************************

Step 4 (optional): You are able to click "Settings" button to set advanced audio and video parameters. Here you can adjust video size, frame rate, aspect ratio, audio channel, etc. Basically the 3D AVCHD MTS and M2TS files are typical HD formats with very high video and audio quality, normally in 16:9 aspect ratio. In order to avoid stretched image, you are advised to set 1920*1080 or 1280*720 as video size. But if you'd like to change the 16:9 video to 4:3 for standard definition conversion, choose 640*480 in the dropdown list of "Size".

Step 5: Click the "Start "button to start the 3D AVCHD to 3D MKV Conversion.

After Converting, it would be easy to import the converted 3D MKV files to media players like Western Digital TV or others and enjoy the videos on HDTV.
