ProRes 422 is a standard-definition and high-definition lossy video
compression format developed by Apple Inc. for use in post production.
It was introduced in 2007 with Final Cut Studio 2 and is comparable to
Avid’s DNxHD codec which has the same purpose and uses similar bit
rates. Both are DCT based intra-frame-only codecs, and are therefore
simpler to decode than distribution oriented formats like H.264.

Recommend you Pavtube AVCHD Convert for Mac. With this AVCHD camcorder
MTS files Converter, you can transfer MTS files to Apple
ProRes422,4444 for FCP, AIC(Apple Intermediate Codec) for Final Cut
Express, QuickTime Movie format like DVCPRO HD, DV-PAL, DV/DVCPRO-
editing smoothly and other popular format like mov,mp4 ect.

PS: While Final Cut does not edit AVCHD natively, it is still a simple
procedure to utilize the AVCHD footage. In Final Cut you would open
your log and transfer window and import the footage as ProRes 422
which, while it creates larger files, is a great codec to edit with
and I do so with most everything.I suggest you purchsed Pavtube AVCHD
Convert for Mac , because compressor is very slow and Final Cut handle
AVCHD files when it finds them in their original file structure
(either by connecting the camcorder or using a memory card reader),
not isolated .mts files.You don’t need the biggest and best Mac Pro
and just either Final Cut Studio 2 or 3 will do just fine. I would
suggest having a minimum of 4 gigs of ram which is the most FCP can
utilize anyway at this point.
