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

sponsored links
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.


If we have to encode AVCHD for iMovie, we will need to download and install a top [b][url=***********]AVCHD to AIC Converter[/url][/b] to help us to convert AVCHD to AIC MOV for iMovie on Mac OS X. I have successfully used the powerful [b]Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac[/b] to trasnscode MTS/M2TS to MOV on Mac. It has iMovie's preset profile that which can give you the best video quality with highest setting. Below is my guide on converting Panasonic AG-AC130/AG-AC160 AVCHD to iMovie.

STEP 1: Download and install the Mac MTS/M2TS Converter for iMovie and then launch the program to add MTS/M2TS videos to it.
Tip: If you wanna join MTS/M2TS files for easier editing in, please check the "Merge into one" box. This MTS converter for Mac can also work as the best MTS/M2TS merger.

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=***********]convert Panasonic AC130/AC160 MTS to MOV[/url][/b] for iMovie on Mac OS X immediately.


After the conversion, you can get the output for iMovie easily. Now, you can bring the converted AVCHD video to iMovie for editing on Mac freely.

This Mac AVCHD Converter also support AVCHD transcoding for iMovie, FCE, FCP, etc of AG-3DA1, 3-MOS imager AVCCAM Hand-held Camcorder AG-HMC40PJ, 3-MOS POVCAM Full HD Camera Head AG-HCK10G, Sensor AVCCAM Camcorder AG-AF100, 3-CCD Handheld AVCCAM camcorder AG-HMC150PJ, 3MOS AVCCAM HD shoulder-mount camcorder AG-HMC80PJ and more models.
