How to Import Video from Sony HVR-V1U to iMovie? I have purchased a Sony HVR-V1U HDV Camcorder. I use iMovie 8.0.6 and want to know how to import video and if there would be any problem editing movies from this camcorder? The HVR-V1U is a professional camcorder for better and easier mobile filmmaking. In addition to typical 1080/60i, the HVR-V1U offers 24p/30p progressive scan capture, enabling cinema and drama productions. Sony HVR-VIU provides video recordings with HDV format.

Now Just Follow This Step to Import Your HDV Videos from Sony HVR-V1U to iMovie
First, please open your iMovie. Then Click File > Import to the HDV videos from Sony HVR-V1U you want to load to iMovie, after that, just click Open.

If your screen still stays blue, maybe the video can't be accepted by iMovie. iMovie supports the most popular video formats including DV-Standard, AVCHD, MPEG-2, HDV (High Definition Video), QuickTime Movie(including mov, m4v, mp4), iSight, MEPG-4 etc. If you still face problem importing Sony HVR-V1U HDV footage to iMovie 8, 9, 11 for editing and creating your movie, you can use Aunsoft Video Covnerter for Mac as the best HVR-V1U HDV 1080/60i to iMovie AIC MOV converter. With the HDV to AIC converter, you can keep the highest video quality for editing. Since Apple Intermediate Codec is less compressed format, the output video size will be larger than the original file.

Follow the guide below and you will find it easy to edit videos from the full HD movie recording interchangeable lens system camera on Mac OS X.

Step 1. Upload Sony HVR-V1U HDV files to Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac.
Connect Sony HVR-V1U to Apple iMac/MacBook Pro via USB 2.0 cable, run Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac as the best 2011 Sony HDV to iMovie 8 AIC MOV converter. Click the "Add" button to browse and import the .mts files from Sony HVR-V1U camera to Mac application.

Step 2. Choose AIC codec with 1920x1080 video size.
Click the "Format" option, and move mouse cursor to QuickTime Movie Format > Apple InterMediate Codec(AIC) (*.mov) as output format. To get 1080 video, click the "Settings" button and choose 1920*1080 for iMovie.

Step 3. Convert Sony HVR-V1U HDV to MOV with AIC for iMovie 8/9/11.
Click the convert button under the preview window, the Mac Sony HVR-V1U HDV converter will start the Sony HVR-V1U HDV to iMovie conversion in HD resolution.

For the HDV 1080i movie from Sony HVR-V1U, you need to select the clip and click the "Editor" button. Go to the Effect tab and make sure the checkbox for deinterlacing is ticked.

AVCHD to AIC-Join Panasonic TM900 1080 60p AVCHD Footage to AIC for Editing in iMovie 8 and Keep Highest Quality

The Panasonic HDC-TM900 is the successor to the HDC-TM700, one of the hottest camcorders in 2010. The TM900 offers the same fantastic video performance as its predecessor, particularly with its widely-praised 1080/60p mode. As one Mac use, I noticed that iMovie 8 is claimed to support AVCHD video files from Panasonic TM700 on Apple official web. But when I tried to import my Panasonic TM9001080/60P AVCHD files to iMovie 8, I found that iMovie saw them but I can't select them. And then I have to try copying the m2ts files onto an external firewire drive and iMovie still does not find it.

For now, it seems that iMovie '08 doesn't accept all the various flavors of AVCHD files. So I have to google "import Panasonic TM900 1080p MTS to iMovie 8", and finally I got a nice solution with the recommendation of one HDCam program named Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac. The highlighted point of this program is its right output video format of Apple Intermediate Codec (AIC) for easily and quickly importing into iMovie. Although AIC video files take more space, but it features high performance and quality, being less processor intensive to work with than other editing formats.

The following guide is my experience of converting Panasonic HDC TM900 1080 60P MTS files to AIC with Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac.

Step 1. Capture and import 1080p video files directly from Panasonic HDC TM900 to Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac.
Click “Wizard” and all footages of your camcorder will be showed on the Camcorder window. Then click Next button and choose Import instead of Backup to import PanasonicTM900 MTS files to Final Mate for Mac more quickly. After this, imported footages will be lying in camcorder tab.

Step 2. Create a Movie for converting Panasonic TM900 1080P MTS files to AIC.

There are two ways for you to create a Movie for converting imported 1080 60P MTS files. –The easiest one is dragging and dropping displayed MTS files from Camcorder Tab area to a single Movie.
-Another way is clicking the drop-down button of “Add Movie” icon and choose “For Conversion” to create a blank movie. And then drag and drop the video clips from Camcorder Tab to the blank movie in Movies Tab. In this way, all video clips will be merged as one single movie for conversion.

Step 3. Export AIC video file for iMovie 8.
Click the Export button and choose “Export into Editor”. Follow QuickTime Movie Format > Apple Intermediate Codec (*.mov) to choose output format for editing in FCE/iMovie. Finally click OK to start converting 1080/60p MTS files to AIC.

Once the conversion is done, you can directly import the output AIC MOV files to iMovie 8 for editing and make your movies.
