How to Connect Your Camcorder To Final Cut Pro in a Nice Way?

digisns76 No Comments

For a further editing in Final Cut Pro with your camcorder footage? Surely, Final Cut Pro allows you to capture video footage directly from your DV camcorder. However, before you can begin capturing video, you’ll need to properly connect your camcorder to your computer. Once your device is connected, Final Cut Pro uses a FireWire device control that allows you to control the playback of video footage on your camcorder from within the application, rather than using the controls on your camera. So, here is a quick tutorial that will teach you how to connect your camcorder to Final Cut Pro.


For the preparation you need to do:

  • A computer with Final Cut Pro installed
  • A digital camcorder
  • A six pin to four pin FireWire cable

Main steps are listed below as a reference:
Step 1: Turn off the Camcorder
Before connecting the camcorder to your computer, make sure that is turned off to avoid possibly damaging the camera or your computer.
Step 2: Connect the Cable
Connect the FireWire cable to the FireWire port on your computer. Then, connect the smaller end of the cable to your camcorder. (Note – Some cameras or computers may have the port labeled as IEEE 1394 or I Link; however, these are the same types of FireWire connections.)
Step 3: Power on the Camcorder
Turn the power on for your camcorder.
Step 4: Launch Final Cut Pro
On your computer, open Final Cut Pro. Launch the program from your dock or shortcut icon on your desktop.
Step 5: Set off the Camcorder in Final Cut Pro
Go to the menu bar and choose file ‘Log and Capture’. The ‘Log and Capture’ window will appear and you should see your camcorder in the list of devices. If your camcorder is properly compacted, Final Cut Pro will display the ‘VTR OK’ at the bottom of the ‘Log and Capture’ window.
Step 6: Set up External Video Devices
With Final Cut Pro, you can view the video from your camcorder on an external monitor. To do this, you’ll need to use the proper cable to connect your analog video outputs (S-Video or composite cables) to your camcorder into your NTSC or PAL compatible video monitor input.
Step 7: Set up Audio Preferences
If you want to listen to the audio from the video through speakers or an amplifier, you also need to use the correct cable to connect the analog audio output (usually stereo RCA) to the input jack of a stereo amplifier. You may also route the sound through an audio mixer to provide greater control and flexibility when editing.
On the other hand, if you prefer listening to the audio signal from the footage through your regular computer speakers, you’ll need to set up the ‘Clip Settings’ in the ‘Log and Capture’ Windows and enable the preview feature. By doing this, Final Cut Pro will send audio signals from the footage to the audio output specified in the output section for the sound pane in your system preferences.
Step 8: Start Capturing
Once you have set up your camcorder, you can begin using it to capture video and bring it into Final Cut Pro. Remember, you can always add additional camcorders and select the one you want to use in the ‘Log and Capture’ window.

MTS File Extension Details and Tips

digisns76 No Comments

If you are a HD camcorder user, you must be quite familiar with AVCHD video file (.mts/.m2ts extension), because AVCHD video is the dominant HD format for camcorder recording and playback. Now anyone hoping to convert, edit, share MTS Video Files or looking for a suitable AVCHD Converter can take a look at the article below.

AVCHD format

What is MTS?

MTS is a file extension for an AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) video clip format for high-definition video. Recording directly from HD camcorder is one way straightforward to create AVCHD MTS file. Best recommended AVCHD camcorders, e.g. Panasonic HDC-SD9, Sony Handycam HDR-CX550V, Canon Vixia HF S21 and Canon HF10, will definitely surprise you with their 27x Zoom, Ful-HD Video and 10.6-Megapixel Stills.

How to View MTS Video Files on Your PC

Even if you want to edit these files, an initial challenge comes when trying to review your footage on a desktop monitor. Copying the data from the camera (perhaps via a cable or by removing the memory card and copying the clips to your PC) is the easy part. If you don’t have a suitable player for viewing MTS clips, then you’ll be unable to appreciate exactly what you’ve recorded. You might be planning to edit high definition video (more on that later) so checking through to decide what to lose and what to keep will prove useful.
View MTS Video Files
Fortunately there are some applications for viewing MTS videos, available free online:

  • The popular VLC Player is one such application, allowing you to load and playback high definition videos saved as MTS format.
  • Another popular media player application, The KMPlayer, will also handle MTS files, delivering the crisp detail that you expect from a HD recording.
  • Some MTS files will playback in Windows Media Player 11. Because there are slight differences between the methods used by various cameras for encoding in this format, it isn’t a dead cert that your footage will play back, however. Using a codec pack may help – or you could just use one of the third party suggestions above.

Converting MTS Video Files

I recently found that even if viewing video files in MTS format is possible, editing them is another matter entirely. As such, AVCHD Conversion is necessary.

Here Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter (Win/Mac) is recommended as AVCHD Converter for Canon, Sony, Panasonic and JVC cameras. It’s specific on converting AVCHD/MTS/M2TS files to various video formats in sync and encoding them with preferred video codec for NLE programs, such as Windows Movie Maker, Sony Vegas, Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Final Cut Express, Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Aperture 3, Kdenlive, Keynote, Avid Xpress Pro, Adobe Creative Suite 6, Adobe After Effects CS6, DaVinci Resolve, iPhoto. And support QuickTime MOV outputting with the best video quality interlaced or progressive.

convert mts files

What’s more, it’s also a smart assistant to well sync your AVCHD footage to portable devices for playing back on iPad/iPhone/iPod, Android Devices like Samsung Galaxy, Nexus 6/7/9/10, Kindle Fire HD(X); well support Apple TV and other HDTV videos outputting; and other devices like XBox 360, ps4, etc.

How to use this tool?

Can I Edit MTS Files?

Different methods are available for editing an MTS file. To save time, you might prefer to head straight in and use a tool such as Windows Live Movie Maker(the most recent version of Microsoft’s desktop video editor), which will natively play back MTS videos and allow you to edit them.

Edit MTS Files

However, the options available in that particular application are limited, and certainly not as advanced as those on offer in the earlier Windows Movie Maker. This is why you might choose to convert the data before editing. Note that if you already have some video editing software installed, this might play MTS natively.

Conclusion: Make Your Choice Wisely

While it appears that more and more applications are providing support for MTS and other AVCHD container formats – hardly surprising given the obvious attractions of high definition video – finding the tools to do the job can prove tricky. Fortunately using the applications listed here you can do what is necessary to review, convert and edit MTS format videos as you see fit, hopefully with very good results.
