“I got some Sony 3D AVCHD MTS videos from my client. And I want to transfer the AVCHD MTS videos to Final Cut Pro for further editing. However, they were refused by FCP. I can not import the 3D videos to iMovie directly. How should I do? Help me, thank you!”

If you have got a 3D camcorder like Sony HDR-TD10, HDR-TD20VE, JVC GS-TD1, Panasonic HDC-SDT750 or Panasonic AG-3DA1, etc and recorded lots of 3D AVCHD MTS/M2TS files, you may want to watch the recorded 3D videos on HD TV, portable devices or just want to import these 3D AVCHD files in some None Linear Editing software like Final Cut Pro (X/7/6), iMovie, FCE, Avid MC, Adobe Premiere, Sony Vegas, Pinnacle Studio, etc for advanced editing. However, the 3D AVCHD MTS footage is not that easy to handle.

In fact, between 3D AVCHD video and regular AVCHD video, the camcorder happens to have two lenses next to each other and the two images are recorded to the single storage media. Most users found that even some video editing programs like Adobe Premiere Pro can recognize the 3D video, but Premiere only shows the left-eye image, not the whole images.
