.m2t files in Final Cut Express

I want to buy a new Macbook Pro and have Final Cut Express installed. I will not be doing any serious editing on the road with my new "road warrior" but I do need to import and review .m2t files from time to time from a Sony MRC1 recorder.

Is that a problem or do I need the full blown FCS2 installed to view import and view these files?

Final Cut Pro doesn't even have support for .m2ts. I suggest purchasing ClipWrap. For only $50, this amazing program will read your .m2t files, and automatically wrap them into the proper QuickTime codec.

So, if I have ClipWrap to rewrap the files into QT, will FCE play with those files?

FCE and m2t files

Hi Tyge,

I new to video but found out after purchasing FCP 6 that FCE will work with m2t files. You must first download from Apple Quick Time MPEG-2 ($19.99). Then you need a free MPEG StreamClip download called Squared 5 ( Squared 5 - MPEG Streamclip video converter for Mac and Windows ). Drop the m2t file into the Squared 5 icon on your desktop and follow that with a File "Log and Transfer" in FCE to import the clip.
It works for me.

Download VLC to play .MTS.

If you want to edit,u need a video converter.Download Pavtube video converter for mac.Its demo version doesnt limit anything.

Convert you .MTS to HD MPEG2.

MRC1K Import Into Final Cut 6.0.6

Hello,

I'm having trouble with my new MRC1K, attempting to import the files into Snow Leopard.
I have clips recorded onto the unit, I have the unit connected via cradle to my Mac Pro and I have it mounted via Disk Utility and settings to I-Link Mode, and have tried both HDV and Auto selections.

I attempt to "Log and Transfer" but nothing happens; the Log-Transfer window opens, but no transfer occurs.

I'm calling Sony Business Solutions by phone in the morning, but was hoping to get started now...

Thanks!
