Sony recently announced Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 large-sensor compact–a first in the company’s camera lineup. RX100 is a feature-packed compact camera aimed at the discerning photographer. With a 3.6x optical zoom with a 7.2 x Clear Image Zoom (digital), 10 fps continuous shooting, full HD video recording 60p/50p with dual recording, it is really wonderful to take it and record exciting moments when travelling or spending holidays.
I like easy editing with Final Cut Pro for family movies, but when importing RX100 1080/60p MTS files in FCP, I found that the recordings grey out. Could this high-compressed 1080/60p MTS files be too much for the Final Cut Pro to handle? Is there any way I can use RX100 MTS files in FCP?
Introduction & Requirements
I think it is due to format compatibility issues. And to solve this problem, the best method is to convert Sony MTS files to FCP native editable format(e.g. Apple ProRes 422 encoded .mov format), like along with some help from a third-party tool. After that you can bring RX100 footage in your video editor for further editing. Keep reading for a brief guide below.
Before anything else, you have to download an app that you are going to use later. You are recommended to download and install:
Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for mac – a top Sony AVCHD MTS Converter for Mac users. It is an easy to use yet professional AVCHD Converter on Mac OS X which can not only transcode Sony RX100 AVCHD files to Apple ProRes codec videos for Mac editing, but also provide simple video editing functions for you. Besides, the program can also convert HD videos from HD camcorders or DVs (like JVC, Panasonic, Sony and Cannon) for editing in Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Pro X, Final Cut Express, iMovie, Avid, Adobe Premiere etc.
Transcode/Import Sony RX100 MTS files to Final Cut Pro 6/7 for FCP X for editing with Apple ProRes codec
Step 1. Free donwload and run the best Mac Sony MTS to Prores Converter for FCP, and then import the recorded AVCHD videos into the program.
PS: It’s excellent Sony AVCHD MTS converter which can convert nearly all Sony cameras’ videos to any formats you need, such as Apple Prores 422 MOV, Apple InterMediate Codec MOV, QuickTime MOV, etc.

Some more helpful features of the app:

Before you try to do the conversion, if you are also a FCP X user, please make sure that you have installed the Apple ProRes Codec manually since the FCP X asks users to install it by themselves. And if you want to play Sony RX100 MTS files on your iPad 3/Nexus 7/iPhone/Galaxy S3, etc,you can convert MTS to H.264 MP4 with Pavtube free MTS/M2TS Converter. Just have a try! Hope this helps!
