Panasonic HDC-SD60 is one of the lightweight and compact AVCHD camcorders for 400 to 500 bucks. The SD60 camcorder records superb video images, and manages in poor light for footage. Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 is supposed to support AVCHD import, but it does not work very well. While playing in the preview window of Adobe Premiere, some frames are replaced by the same frame, or it drops a few frames and has some small glitches during playback.
To get rid of the issues above and enjoy smooth playback and editing in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 on Mac, it is recommended that you use Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac to convert Panasonic SD60 1080i MTS to HD MPEG-2 for editing in Adobe Premiere.
