How to convert AVCHD MTS/M2TS to Apple ProRes for FCP on Mac

Apple ProRes is a lossy video compression format to use in post production that supports up to 4k; it is the successor of the Apple Intermediate Codec and was introduced in 2007 with Final Cut Studio 2. ProRes is a line of intermediate codecs, which means they are intended for use during video editing, and not for practical end-user viewing. The benefit of an intermediate codec is that it retains higher quality than end-user codecs while still requiring much less expensive disk systems compared to uncompressed video. It is comparable to Avid's DNxHD codec or CineForm who offer similar bitrates which are also intended to be used as intermediate codecs. ProRes 422 is highly supported by Final Cut Pro.

Final Cut Pro is a non-linear video editing software, which allows users to log and transfer video onto a hard drive, where it can be edited, processed, and output to a wide variety of formats. Since the early 2000s, Final Cut Pro has developed a large and expanding user base, mainly video hobbyists and independent filmmakers. Final Cut Pro 7 claims better integration with Apple's other professional applications and improved codec support for editing HD, DV and SD video formats, including encoding presets for devices such as iPod, Apple TV, and Blu-ray discs. On June 21, 2011, Apple released Final Cut Pro X. Described as a complete rewrite of the original application, FCP X is a 64-bit application with Grand Central Dispatch and OpenCL support, allowing it to scale and use all available cores for background rendering.

As Final Cut Pro is difficult to import or can't unwrap the AVCHD MTS/M2TS files recorded by Sony and Panasonic AVCHD camcorders, we need to convert the file to Apple ProRes and then easily import it into Final Cut Pro due to Apple ProRes 422 is highly supported by Final Cut Pro.
