AVCCAM Importer from Panasonic will offer direct edition of AVCHD into Final Cut Pro
Well finally we will have the chance this summer to speed-up things a little when working on AVCHD on Final Cut Pro! Panasonic announced yesterday that it will release this summer AVCCAM Importer, a free QuickTime plugin that eliminates the needs for you to convert AVCHD Files into ProRES422 via Final Cut Pro Log and Transfer interface and let you directly edit .mts file like any other kind of media.
AVCCAM Importer is a software plug-in for Apple Final Cut Pro to enable direct editing of an AVCHD “.mts” file without conversion. Since AVCCAM Importer is a plug-in component for Apple QuickTime, QuickTime Player can play an “.mts” file directly after installation of AVCCAM Importer on a MAC.
The AVCCAM Importer will be available this summer as a free download from the Panasonic web site.
Panasonic’s AVCCAM series brings the benefits of solid-state HD recording to budget-conscious professionals with a range of affordable camera and recorder products that record with inexpensive, widely-available SD/SDHC cards. The professional AVCCAM line includes the AG-AF100 large sensor HD cinema camera, the AG-3DA1 Full HD 3D camcorder, the AG-HMC80 shoulder-mount, the AG-HMC40 and AG-HMC150 handhelds, and the AG-HMR10 AVCCAM recorder and its optional AG-HCK10 camera head. AVCHD is supported by a wide range of editing options, including Apple Final Cut Pro 6 or 7, Adobe Premier Pro CS4 or CS5, Grass Valley EDIUS Pro 5 or 6, EDIUS Neo 2 or 3, and Avid Media Composer 5. In addition, a free transcoder, available for download at www.panasonic.com/avccam, converts AVCHD files to DVCPRO HD P2 and downconverted DV files for use with most existing professional editing packages.
