“I recently bought Panasonic HDC-HS700 camcorder, which provides 240GB HDD and SD Card Slot with full HD recording at 1080/60p with 28mpbs. The videos play perfectly when preview on the HD camcorder, but when I tried to transfer the files to my Mac Pro, the .mts files are not compatible with my Mac Pro. I could not play the HD videos with QuickTime Player.
After searching the solution to play Panasonic HS700 1080p videos in QuickTime Player on Mac, I find Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac the top-notch Mac Panasonic video converter, which does not only convert 60p AVCHD videos to HD MOV for QuickTime, but also includes quick option to merge and join video clips to one single file for smooth playback on Mac.” - From David
If you face problem making your videos compatible with Mac computer, you may also follow the steps below to convert Panasonic to Mac compatible format in high quality. Here I take Mac Pro with Snow Leopard as an example, and the steps below also works with iMac, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air with Tiger, Leopard and Snow Leopard.
Step 1. Load Panasonic HS700 video to Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac.
After copying and transferring .mts files from Panasonic HS700 to Mac Pro hard drive, run Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac as perfect Panasonic video converter on Mac Snow Leopard, and click the "Add" button to load 1080/60p .mts videos. The converter also supports importing videos with drag and drop.
Step 2. Choose HD MOV format.
Click the "Format" option and navigate the mouse cursor to HD Video > H.264 HD Video(*.mov) as output format. The Mac Panasonic video converter will transcode HS700 1080p video to MOV for QuickTime Player.
Step 3. Merge Panasonic HS700 videos. (optional)
Check the box for "Merge into one file" on the application UI, and the Mac video joiner will merge the listed video clips with the front checkbox ticked on file list to output one single file.
Step 4. Convert Panasonic HS700 video to MOV.
Click the convert button under the preview window, and the conversion from Panasonic HS700 1080p video to Mac QuickTime MOV will start immediately. After the conversion, the videos maintain 1920x1080 resolution. You will get a single file if you check the box to merge video clips.
If you have Panasonic TM700, you may also use the Mac Panasonic video converter to make videos compatible with your iMac/MacBook Pro or Mac Pro. If you have other questions about Panasonic camcorders, just go to the Panasonic camcorder column to get more information.
