As a popular format for both consumers and professionals, AVCHD has played an important role in video format area.

So now we provide you a great video tutorial to show you the way of importing AVCHD videos into Final Cut Pro.
Some explanations you can take as the reference here:
When a camera is connected, it appears in the Finder just like a hard drive, and it acts like one too. It is a great idea to transfer the contents of the camera to a folder on a hard drive, and then access the media from there. This has a number of benefits:
First of all, it frees up space on your camera; second of all it creates a compressed archive of your media; this is nice because after you complete your project you can delete the uncompressed files and save considerable space on your hard drive.
Log & Transfer acts like Log & Capture in that it imports the clips into the file browser and stores the actual files in the Capture Scratch. I hope this has helped you understand using AVCHD media in Final Cut Pro with Log & Transfer.
