“As a videographer in colleague, I use Canon Vixia HF11 to shoot internal communications and training videos. Canon Vixia HF11 shoots in HD format using AVCHD compression and the files have .mts extension. However, when I try to log and transfer the AVCHD footage from Canon camera to FCP, the camera does not show up. Final Cut Pro does not even import the .mts files directly.
While looking for a solution to edit the HD videos in FCP, I found Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac to convert the training videos from Canon Vixia HF11 to MOV for FCP, and then I can upload the training videos to web for online classes. The video quality is great and it is my preferred tool to handle AVCHD files to MOV.”
If you have difficulties logging and transferring AVCHD files from camcorder/camera to Final Cut Pro or Final Cut Express like me, you may follow the steps below to make your videos importable and editable on Mac. Here I take my Canon Vixia HF11 as an example, and the steps will be similar to most AVCHD camcorders and cameras.
Step 1. Load AVCHD files to Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac.
While Canon HF11 is connected to Mac computer, it will show up as CAM_MEM. Run Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac as the best AVCHD training converter on Mac Snow Leopard, or Mac Leopard. Click the "Add" button and browse the .mts files from folder CAM_MEM > AVCHD > BDMV > STREAM. If you are using cameras with AVCHD files, you may be likely find the .mts files from the PRIVATE folder and then go to the AVCHD folder like above.
Step 2. Choose QuickTime MOV output format.
Click the "Format" option, and choose HD Video > H.264 HD Video(*.mov) as output format. The Mac AVCHD MTS converter will transcode MTS to MOV with H.264 codec and High-Def 1920x1080.
Step 3. Convert AVCHD MTS/M2TS to MOV for Final Cut.
Click the convert button under the preview window, and the conversion from AVCHD training video to MOV for editing in Final Cut Pro will start immediately.
After the conversion, import the recorded HD videos to Final Cut Pro. It is pretty easy to get the training videos to web for online classes.
