Convert HDR XR520V to Final Cut Pro

The HDR-XR520V is the new top-dog HD camcorder from Sony. It packs a 240GB internal hard drive into a fairly compact frame and offers new Exmor R technology on a 1/2.88-inch CMOS sensor. It records 1920*1080/60i HD Videos with MPEG4 AVC/H.264 Video coding and Dolby Digital 5.1 Audio Coding. The HDR-XR520V Camcorder users can share the videos and photos with family and friends on compatible HDTV. It has brought me so much joy until a problem occurs when I am connecting Sony HDR XR520v to Macbook pro & edit those AVCHD using Final Cut Pro. After searching for several days I finally find the solution and glad to share with those who are also puzzled with it. To edit AVCHD from Sony HDR-XR520v in Final Cut Pro, needs transcoding AVCHD files from Sony HDR-XR520v camcorder to Final Cut Pro editable video format MOV. As a result, a third party software is required & here I recommend Brorsoft HDR Converter for Mac

Following is the step-by-step tutorial about how to connect Sony HDR XR520v to Macbook pro & edit the AVCHD using FCP.

Procudure1. Convert Sony HDR XR520v AVCHD to MOV
Preparation: Connecting Sony HDR XR520v to Macbook pro, Transfer the AVCHD files from Sony HDR-XR520V’s massive 240GB hard disk drive (HDD) to Apple hard drive disk.

Step1. Load Sony HDR XR520v AVCHD to the best HDR-XR520V Converter program.
Download and run Brorsoft AVCHD Converter for Mac, click the "Add" button on the top tool bar to load the AVCHD videos or drag them directly into the program.

Step2. Select MOV as the output format.
Click the "Format" pop-down menu, navigate to “Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas “ section. Select “MOV (AVC) (*.mov)” as the output format. Plus, click the “Export To” button to specify the destination folder so as to find the output videos easily after conversion.

Step3. Set the codec as XVID Codec that Final Cut Pro deal with
As no auto-conform sequence dialog for H.264 codec (the default codec) in Final Cut, you have to correct the output parameter. Click the “settings” button, change the output video codec as XVID so that Final Cut can recognize. Plus, you can also adjust other audio and video parameters like bitrates, frame rate, and audio channel. In principle, the larger input values, the larger file size, but accompanying with the better file quality; the smaller input value, the smaller file size, but in accordance with the more inferior file quality. That is to say, if you want to do advance settings, you’d better make a balance between the file sizes and file quality.

Step4. Convert Sony HDR XR520v AVCHD to FCP MOV
Click the convert button under the preview window, and the conversion will need several minutes. You can:
Be clear about the total achieved percentage of scheduled progress
"Pause" or "Cancel" the conversion at any time
"Shut down the computer after conversion" by ticking the box

Procedure2. Import Sony MOV videos to Final Cut Pro
1. Choose the "Import" and "Files" options from under the File command at the top of the Final Cut Pro window.

2. Select the desired file from the standard Choose a File window. Once the desired file is located and highlighted, press the "Choose" button. It may take a few seconds or even minutes depending on the file size. If the file is on an external hard drive, it will take even longer.

3. Locate the file in the resources list for the project, it appears there just as any captured video would.

4. Manipulate the video file in the Viewer Slug window as necessary. Drag the file into the Timeline when ready. The footage needs to be rendered before it can be viewed in the Canvas.

5. Save the project. Render the Timeline so that the video can be seen. It is easiest to render both audio and video at this time even if the video imported had no audio. It may take several minutes to render the footage.

6. Save the project again. The footage can now be edited in the Timeline as if it were normally captured video.

All is done and hope you could enjoy it. For more information please refer to: Connecting Sony HDR XR520v to Macbook pro/editing AVCHD using Final Cut Studio
