Re: Sony a77 Workflow for Mac.. help?

If you want to carry on editing with FCP 7 rather than 'upgrading' to FCP X you can use ClipWrap which will wrap the AVCHD files and allow import without transcoding them (which you obviously don't want to do).

It's cheap and there's a free version that will only wrap a minute of footage, but you can use it as a try out.

If you're used to FCP and three point editing you might find FCP X a bit of a nightmare. I've only tinkered with it in the Apple Store but it looked too much like iMovie for my liking - there's no canvas window and I couldn't find a ripple or roll tool. I'm not a video professional but I use video in my job and I've got zero time to relearn something I learned eight years ago.
