Does Final Cut Pro support AVCHD footage? It depends as Final Cut Pro doesn't natively support for AVCHD footage. If you are using FCP 7 or above, you can take your chance to use Log and Transfer to transcode AVCHD footage. However, it doesn't always work, for there are some restrictions when FCP is working with AVCHD, like AVCHD support is available only on Intel-based Mac, SD video recorded with AVCHD camcorders can't be accessed in the Log and Transfer window, etc.
