If you are going to import AVCHD file from Canon HF11 to Avid Media Composer, you may notice that the HD .mts file is not supported by old versions like MC 3.1.1. You may want to transcode .mts to DNxHD for Avid. But without luck, the conversion hangs forever. You may try Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter as the Canon Vixia MTS converter for your Canon HF11.
With Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter as the companion of Canon Vixia HF11, you can convert HD .mts to HD .mov for editing on Avid Media Composer. The Canon Vixia MTS converter also deinterlaces AVCHD videos, which are recorded at 920x1080/60i, and removes interlacing artifacts.
Follow the steps below to import Canon HF11 AVCHD to Avid Media Composer.
Step 1. Load Canon Vixia HF11 AVCHD videos to Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter.

Tip: Avid Media Composer version 2.7.2 can not import H.264/AVC MOV for editing.
