Apple ProRes is designed for fabulous video editing with highest quality on Final Cut Pro, so that movie and film editors would make the most of the source video. No matter you are not a professional video editor, or just want to play around FCP, you can enjoy the simplicity with ProRes for camcorder and camera videos.
However, Final Cut Pro does not support all kinds of AVCHD files, for example the non-AVCHD standard compliant 1080/60p mts/m2ts videos from Panasonic HDC-TM700/SD700/HS700.
