How to get Panasonic GH3 1080/50p AVCHD video into Avid DNxHD .mov format

The Panasonic GH3 once again focuses on video as much as photo performance. From the specs we can see that the new Lumix DSLR records at much higher bitrate video. AVCHD capture is now at up to 1080/50p. However, the big news is a QuickTime mode that records at 1080/24p, 1080/25p or 720/50p using an unusually high 72Mbit/s bit rate and all-intra compression. Unlike normal AVC compression, this describes each frame from scratch rather than updating areas that have changes since the last frame. It should give less compression artifacts than the heavily compressed AVCHD output from the GH2, particularly for fast-moving scenes. QuickTime 1080/50p capture is at 50Mbit/s, and while it doesn't use all-intra compression, it should still give better results than the GH2's 24Mbit/s maximum bit rate.



The 1080/50p shooting mode brings Full HD 1920x1080p video with best possible quality, but it could be a problem if you're working AVCHD footage in Avid Media Composer. Avid does not support the 50p footage. So far I am still not able to import the 1080/50p from my Panasonic DHC-TM900. But still the 50i AVCHD is very good to see on a 42 inch plasma screen.

Here's a solution for importing 1080/50p to Avid with the help of 3rd-party app Pavtube Media Magician, a nice camcorder assistant manager and AVCHD editor. When serving as an intermediate decoder, the software can convert 1080/50p AVCHD .mts/.m2ts video into Avid DNxHD .mov format, which is naturally supported by Avid Media Composer.

Step 1: Import Panasonic GH3 AVCHD video to Media magician.

Connect your camera with your PC and launch Pavtube Media Magician for Windows (If you work on OS X, get Media Magician for Mac). The app will automatically detect your camera and ask "Camcorder is connected. Are you ready to launch wizard now?" Click "Yes" to confirm. Select the 1080/50p video files you'd like to import to AVID, and then press "Start" to import AVCHD to Media Magician library.

Step 2: Organize and edit Panasonic GH3 1080/50p videos in timeline.

Drag and drop the AVCHD videos to timeline for editing from library. Here you can remove unwanted .mts/.m2ts clips, trim out unwanted frames from specific clip by frame-accurate, and put them into the right order for merging. Use the scissor icon to do frames trimming.

Step 3: Choose "Output" on the top of main interface to switch it to output interface.

In output interface you can set intermediate codec for editing software as well as common video format (AVI, MKV, MP4, MOV, MPG, etc) for compressing AVCHD.

Step 4: Choose Avid DNxHD codec as output format.

For importing Panasonic GH3 1080/50p video to AVID, follow the steps to set Avid DNxHD preset:

1. Move your mouse to "Editor", click on the tab.
2. Select "Avid Studio" group.
3. The default output format for AVID is "Avid DNxHD 720p(*.mov)". To export 1080p full HD video, just select the "Avid DNxHD 1080p(*.mov)"from the drop-down list of "Format" bar. Set higher bitrate for better quality if necessary.

Step 5: Convert Panasonic GH3 1080/50p mts videos and export best format for AVID Studio

Panasonic DMC-GH3 is a popular Full HD camera that provides users with multiple output formats. But the most popular fomrat is AVCHD 2.0, which is an advanced video format with 1080 60p for Sony and Panasonic cams. However, it is also an un-standard format for almost video editing Software, including Final Cut Pro. It is claimed that FCP X 10.0.4 or above can support it sometimes, but some problems still occurred from time to time. If your Final Cut Pro seems cannot ingest the 60p files from GH3 well, how do you handle it?

In fact, import 60p AVCHD to FCP is not a tricky process. If you use one professional AVCHD to FCP Converter to transcode AVCHD to Apple ProRes losslessly and then import to FCP 6/7 and FCP X, you are able to edit the video smoothly. I have used Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac for a long time, it always do the fast AVCHD .mts/m2ts conversion with the best quality as I want. I believe it will be a good choice for you. Now follow the step-by-step guide,



Step 1: Get the top MTS Converter for FCP, then start it to import your Panasonic GH3 .mts/.m2ts files it. Check off the “Merge into one” box to combine your MTS files together if necessary.

Step 2: Tap the Format icon; from the dropdown menu select Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) (*.mov) as the target format. Of course, the ProRes 422, ProRes 422 (LT), ProRes 422 (Proxy) and ProRes 4444 are also the right choice for FCP 7 and FCP X.



Step 3: Click the “Settings” icon and you’d better set the video frame rate as 30fps, video size as 1920*1080 for editing GH3 footages in FCP with the best quality.

Step 4: Hit the “Convert” button; it will start to transcode Panasonic GH3 AVCHD to ProRes for FCP on Mac OS X immediately.

After the 60p AVCHD to ProRes conversion, you can import converted files to FCP, just click and choose File >> Import >> Files, and then you can load your video files to FCP for easy editing.
