Panasonic DMC-ZS10 is the compact camera with HD video recording. The recording mode could be GFS and FSH modes for 1920x1080 AVCHD files, GS and SH modes for 1280x720p AVCHD Lite or Motion JPEG.

Apple Aperture was released as a photo management system for creating slideshow, enhance photo on Mac. Aperture 3 is becoming more of a hybrid Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution with the support of HD video from digital SLR cameras and compact cameras. However, it does not support the videos recorded in MPEG H.264/AVCHD as AVCHD or AVCHD Lite format.

If you would like to manage videos together with the photos, or create multimedia slideshow with AVHCD Lite in Aperture 3, it could be done easily with Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac. Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac can help you handle 1080i/1080p AVCHD files and 720p AVCHD Lite footage in Aperture.

Fix EOS plugin problem on FCP-Edit Canon 7D H.264 Movies on Mac
FCP transcoder alternative-EOS MOV to Apple ProRes no frame drops
I have Canon EOS 7D for excellent picture, and sometimes shoot movie with it. However, I could edit it on my iMac with Final Cut Studio 2. I am running Mac OS X (10.6.3) with quad core and 4G RAM. I then installed Canon EOS MOVIE Plugin-E1 for Final Cut Pro, and it helps me import the video without error message. however, I found that some clips are shorter than what they are really taken. It seems that some frames were dropped when transcoded to ProRes.

When looking for solutions to fix EOS plugin problem, I find Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac as FCP transcoder alternative to convert EOS MOV to Apple ProRes no frame drops. It provides Apple ProRes 422, ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes (LT) and ProRes (Proxy) and ProRes 4444 for editing in Final Cut Pro.

Below is the fast guide for converting Canon EOS movies to Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) with best quality.

Step 1. Import Canon footage to Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac.
Run Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac as FCP transcoder alternative for Apple ProRes, click the "Add" button to import the H.264 .mov files from Canon 7D.

Step 2. Choose Apple ProRes 422 (HQ).
Click the "Format" option, and navigate to Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422(HQ) (*.mov) as output format. Click the "Settings" button and choose 1920*1080 from the drop-down box of video size to keep HD resolution.

Step 3. Convert Panasonic 1080p 28Mbps MTS to MOV for FCP.
Click the convert button under the preview window, and the H.264 MOV to Apple ProRes converter will start converting Canon 7D video for Final Cut Pro.

You can then import the Apple ProRes 422 HQ video to Final Cut via File > Import > Files without any problem.
