How to Import Panasonic HC-X920K 1080/50p 3D AVCHD to FCP X with DD 5.1

Compared to HC-X920K, Sony's new professional handheld HD camcorder released in Sepetember 2013, the Pansonic HC-X920 incorporates significantly larger 1/2.3in units, and these are now openly being described as back-side illuminated too. This is a professional-grade specification, and each sensor has a whopping 12.76Mpixels, which makes a grand total of 38.28Mpixels more than most premium DSLRs. The common point is the video format options of both Panasonic HC-X920k and Sony HC-X920 have moved up to AVCHD 2.0. So the top quality mode offers 1080p Full HD at 50 frames per second, with a data rate of 28Mbits/sec. However, it's not an easy thing to Convert Panasonic HC-X920K 1080/50p AVCHD 2.0 to FCP X
As we know, the AVCHD 2.0 standard has been approved by Sony and Panasonic - the co-promoters of the format. It can be regarded as update of AVCHD video format to include 1080 60p and 50p video. The move also includes additional support for high definition 3D movies in the format. Though the HC-X920k also possible to shoot video in iFrame mode, which uses a standard MP4 format and a resolution of 960 x 540, AVCHD 2.0 is is its characteristic. To bring AVCHD 2.0 MTS to FCPX, an effective and efficient converter may be helpful.

Step1: Import or drag & drop HC-X920/X920K/HC-x929 AVCHD 2.0 MTS/M2TS
Click "add video" or "add folder" to load AVCHD progressive. But I found I can drag & drop directly. In avoid of no audio in source AVCHD, I suggest preview before conversion.

Click "format" and under the FCP menu, ProRes 422, ProRes 422 Proxy, ProRes 422 LT, ProRes 422 HQ, ProRes 4444 are all options for FCP editing. You can also enter FCP in the search bar directly. In most circumstances, 422 HQ MOV is recommended for high video quality.
