Three years ago, I bought Sony HDR-SR11 Camcorder as my birthday present. And I have been happy with it by recording my memories in university. It gave me the best of both worlds. The Sony HDR-SR11 records High Definition 1920 x 1080 video direct to the internal 60GB Hard Disk Drive or to removable Memory Stick. Using HD Long Play (1440x1080) I can record up to 22 hours of footage before needing to export to external storage.

However, I had problems capturing video from a Sony HDR-SR11 AVCHD camera. FCP could not locate the camera and I didn’t know if it was a setting or a connection issue. I stored the full 1920*1080P AVCHD videos on an Internal Hard Drive on the camera. It appears the only way to connect it to FCP is through a USB port. Afterwards I was told that I needed to use Log & Transfer, rather than Log & Capture for USB import. It worked but I came across another problem, that the Sony HDR-SR11 AVCHD file type is not FCP native format. Hence I sought for the right third party software that can make AVCHD files editable in Final Cut Pro. Luckily I found Brorsoft AVCHD Converter for Mac to convert HDR-SR11 AVCHD Video to .MOV for FCP.
In the following article, I will show you how to use the software in detail.

STEP BY STEP Tutorial - How to transcode AVCHD to MOV

Preparation: Connect Sony HDR-SR11 camcorder to iMac/Macbook
Connect Sony HDR-SR11 camcorder to iMac/Macbook though the USB port. Import the AVCHD footage from Sony HDR-SR11 Internal Hard Drive to Apple hard drive.

Step 1: Import videos to Brorsoft HDR-SR11 Converter for Mac.
Download and install the best HDR-SR11 Converter for Mac. Run the program and hit the "Add" button on the top tool bar to import the videos you would like to convert. You can drag several AVCHD videos recorded by the camcorder to the program one by one. All the imported videos will be listed in the box.

Step 2: Select MOV as the output video format.
Click “Format” drop-down menu. Navigate to "Common Video" section for "MOV-QuickTime (*.mov)" as the output video format. It is a editing software friendly format including Final Cut Pro. Click the “Export to” button to specify your destination folder where the output file belongs to.

Tips: Do confirmation in “settings” button when you want to put the converted file into FCP. Xvid is the right output codec rather than h.264. In, general, the program would export files with Xvid as default codec automatically.

Step 3: Start the Sony HDR-SR11 AVCHD to MOV conversion
Click the "convert" button to start converting HDR-SR11 AVCHD footage to MOV-QuickTime. Once all the above steps finished, the Final Cut Pro acceptable MOV files are prepared for you in the destination folder. Now, go to use FCP to edit your own masterpiece!

Brorsoft AVCHD Converter for Mac is a professional primary editing software as well as an AVCHD to MOV converter. Click the “Editor” button on the right hand of “Add”. You are also able do trimming, cropping, watermarking, adjusting contrast, brightness, saturation, deinterlacing(if you need) and audio replacing before the conversion begin.
