Description: Pavtube is offering Easter Day Special Discount for everyone who would like to create memories and save special moments by enjoying BD/DVD movies and HD Videos on Easter Day.

Easter Sunday 2014 is April 20 and it would soon arrive. What do people do usually on Easter Day? Many churches hold special services on Easter Sunday, which celebrate the Jesus Christ’s resurrection after his crucifixion. Many people also decorate eggs. These can be hard boiled eggs that can be eaten later, but may also be model eggs made of plastic, chocolate, candy or other materials. It is also common to organize Easter egg hunts. Eggs of some form are hidden, supposedly by a rabbit or hare. People, especially children, then search for them. In some areas, Easter egg hunts are a popular way for local businesses to promote themselves or may even be organized by churches.

This year’s Easter Day, people could not only keep their tradition to celebrate the Christian belief of Jesus Christ’s resurrection from the dead as usual, but also apply for a new way to memorize Jesus’s sacrifice by sharing religious movies with friends and family members on mobile devices or streaming to TV via home network.

Hi, I some videos shot with a Sony NEX-3N, they are great; but I am new to mac and don’t know how to deal with the footages in FCP, it seems the AVCHD files are not supported by FCP. What can I do? Thanks!

Sony Alpha NEX-3N is one of the latest entry-level models from Sony, with lower price than its predecessor but remaining most useful features such as excellent 16 megapixel image sensor, changeable lens and good video performing. All these features together contribute to make Sony NEX-3N to be an excellent camera for recording vivid videos.

As for video shooting, Sony NEX-3N can shoot 1080/24p or 60i footages which are wrapped in AVCHD, or you can choose to output mp4 format. Unfortunately, most traditional NLE editing programs on Mac including FCP, Avid, Adobe Premiere Pro, iMovie don’t favor AVCHD .mts videos natively. To edit Sony Alpha NEX-3N AVCHD footages in FCP on Mac, you’d better transcode Sony AVCHD footages to FCP compatible Apple ProPres codec for further editing.
