Default Put Panasonic AG-AC130/AC160 MTS/M2TS into iMovie for editing

Some Panasonic AVCCAM users want to edit AVCHD videos to iMovie, but they can't successfully import these native recordings from AG-AC130/AC160 to iMovie under Mac OS X. I went to Google and found we generally use [b]Camera Import[/b] to import AVCHD footage when connecting Camera or Camcorder with a USB cable. But the way has some limitions of Computer System and iMovie version. We still meet some troubles when we attempt to get Panasonic AG-AC130/AC160 AVCHD .mts/m2ts shootings to iMovie. Then how to make MTS/M2TS editble for putting into iMovie without any error? The key is to transcode AVCHD to the best format AIC for iMovie before importing.

STEP 2: Click on Format > iMovie and Final Cut Express > Apple Intermediate Codec(AIC) (*.mov), the iMovie favorable format. Afterwards, set the output folder as you like.

STEP 3: Click the “Settings” icon and you’d better set the video frame rate as 30fps (while 25 fps for original 50p files), video size as 1920*1080 for Panasonic AVCHD video further editing with the best frame rate setting.

Step 4: Click the “Convert” button; this top AVCHD to AIC MOV Converter will [b][url=***********.brorsoft.com/how-to/import-panasonic-ag-ac130-ag-ac160-avchd-to-imovie.html]convert Panasonic AC130/AC160 MTS to MOV[/b] for iMovie on Mac OS X immediately.
