Many cameras and camcorders can now record videos at Full HD 1080 60p(NTSC)/50p(PAL) files such as Sony SLT A57/A65/A77/A99. However, while we are pleased with the video quality of the recordings, the trouble with this is that Final Cut Pro can not recognize thse 60p/50p files at all, whether you transfer them directly from your camera/camcorder or from the folder which has been copied to Mac.
