The Sony A6000 is a great overall camera for more advanced photographers who want something smaller than a DSLR, especially if they need the continuous - shooting speed. It allows you to record 1080/60p AVCHD MTS video. Many of us, who own the Sony A6000 (and everybody else who is interested) are now looking forward an easy solution about A6000 AVCHD MTS to FCP X import issues. (MTS File Extension Details and Tips

"Hi, there. I have just purchased a Sony A6000 last month, which is a super-compact mirrorless camera according to Sony. I've been using it to film a lot over the last 2 weeks and now I want to import A6000 AVCHD MTS to FCP X to do some basic editing, but it seems that FCP X can not open the A6000 AVCHD MTS at all. Why? I've imported and edited AVCHD 24p files into FCP X without any issues from a NEX-5N. Can anyone help me out please? MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012), OS X Mavericks (10.9.2)." 

Like Sony A5000, the A6000 is able to shoot footage in both AVCHD codec and web-friendly MP4 format. But being different from the A5000, more than recording 1920*1080/60i and 1920*1080/24p video files, the Sony A6000 is also capable of shooting AVCHD in Full HD 1920*1080 at super-smooth 60p, which A5000 can not. If you captured loads of AVCHD 60p clips with Sony A6000, you may have import issues one or another while loading them to FCP X. That's because the 60p MTS is a new format above and beyond the standard AVCHD specifications. There are rarely NLEs having native support for the 1080-60p footage. 

Some main files formats recommended for Final Cut Pro X 

Video Formats: Apple Animation codec, Apple Intermediate codec, Apple ProRes(all versions), AVC-intra, AVCHD (including AVCCAM, AVCHD Lite, and NXCAM), DV (including DVCAM, DVCPRO, and DVCPRO50), DVCPRO HD, H.264, HDV, iFrame, Motion JPEG(OpenDML only), MPEG IMX(D-10), REDCODE RAW (R3D), Uncompressed 10-bit 4:2:2, Uncompressed 8-bit 4:2:2, XAVC, XDCAM HD/EX/HD422, QuickTime formats. 

Audio Formats: AAC, AIFF, BWF, CAF, MP3, MP4, WAV 

Container Format: 3GP, AVI, MP4, MXF, QuickTime 

Still-image Formats: BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, PSD, RAW, TGA, TIFF 

Generally, we can use Log and Transfer or Log and Capture to import AVCHD MTS to FCP X for editing, but don't expect it to result in top quality. From Apple official website or the information we mentioned above, you will know that FCP best supported video codec is Apple ProRes codec, which is native codec for Final Cut Pro editing on Mac. So we could depend on Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac to rewrap MTS to ProRes with fast conversion speed and high quality preserved. The one used here can meet your demands with its simple interface but rich functions.
