I have a Canon VIXIA HF R42 camcorder and usually record some videos for my family but really urgent to make a good present video to show a boy’s growing without his great mother on Final Cut Pro X. This video I planned to show on Mother’s day, so it is really urgent! Some one can help me to combine the separated AVCHD .mts files from Canon VIXIA HF R42 and import them into Final Cut Pro X?
With this question I did a lot of online search, and a good avchd mts joiner and converter must have following features: 1 Simple touse that even a green hand could operate it in a few minutes; 2 Very stable workwithout any crashes, freezes and unexpected quits; 3 High video quality withoutpoor picture and small sound; 4 Fast joining and conversion time to save muchtime; 5 Output ProRes 422 codec for importing to FCP X with no rendering.
