How can I edit 3D mts movies from Sony HDR-TD20V on Final Cut Pro X?

Description: Read this article if you are interested in editing Sony 3D TD20V 3D MTS videos with FCP X, it offers a possible solution for 3D AVCHD to FCP.

Sony announces 3D Handycam. The flagship model HDR-TD20V is Sony's second attempt at making a 3D Handycam after TD-10.

Model Highlights

3D to a higher degree: A dual lens and dual sensor system that makes it possible to record Double Full HD 3D video. —which makes for a vastly richer, more engaging and immersive 3D experience.

Say Goodbye to 3D Glasses: The camera sports 3.5-inch Xtra Fine LCD 3D touch screen that enables users to view 3D footage sans glasses.

Choose Your Own Dimension: With 2D playback from 3D recordings, everything that’s captured in 3D can be watched in 2D. Feel free to share your 3D videos with friends and family who don’t yet own a 3D-compatible TV or PC.

Make the switch: a dedicated switch to easily switch between 3D and 2D. This allows you to record everything in 3D and then choose whether to playback in 3D or 2D.

With the 2D playback mode, it is pretty convenient to watch your 3D content even on a regular 2D TV or PC. However, we may find that the 3D AVCHD footage is not a Mac compatible format to playback and edit with.


I had bought the Sony Camcorder HDR-TD20V and I want to make movies on 3D... how can I edit those files from HDR-TD20V and export in 3D? And also, if possible, edit text in 3D on FCP X......


Editing the 3D footage was both complex and difficult for most consumers (not everyone has a quad-core and high end cards) and more so, there was no Mac support and many cameras were returned or unsold.Since Apple hasn't included 3D media files into natively supported video formats within FCP X, it is still essential for us to convert the AVCHD format to a more tractable format.
