Hi guys! Recently, I encountered some difficulties in importing and editing Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 videos to FCP 6. I bought a new Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 camera, and use the camera shoot some videos to leave a good memorial when I spend a honeymoon with my wife. However, I can’t import my Lumix DMC-GX7 MTS files into FCP 6 for editing directly, and it tells me a wrong codec, I do not know how to deal with this problem, please help me, thanks!

Resolution is unchanged at 16 megapixels. It can shoot 1920x1080p HD Video recording in either AVCHD or MP4 at 50p, 25p or 24p, with full-time autofocus and manual controls available. So if you own Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7, you must want to edit Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 MTS footage before you sharing these MTS files with your friends or your family.
