Access AVCHD .mts files HELP!
Authored by: Sam Duncan on Jan 12, '13 05:42:34PM

I have a similar situation. I deleted a few AVCHD(hmc150) files from an SD card (I was in a hurry and couldn't sort through them all), and now FCP 7 won't recognize the card in "Log and Transfer"!!! I can still view all but 10 clips when the card's in my camera, and the card shows all the files in a finder window. When I try to create a custom path to these files, I get a message that says, ""MTS files" contains unsupported media or has an invalid directory structure. Please choose a folder whose directory structure matches supported media." ... Do i need to recover these files via recovery software?? (if so, which one? I have Mac OS X 10.7) or can I unzip, convert, repair, these clips otherwise? please help! thank you -Sam

You have a couple of options that I know of.

1. you can convert them to Prores with another application that can handle MTS files - I use Adobe Media Encoder.
2. If you replace the files that were deleted with other MTS files of the same name (the same MTS file copied and renamed works) then FCP should be able to process the video in Log and transfer. I just use a small video clip that I shot of a piece of paper with "deleted file" written on it. It happens.
