Last night my uncle came to my house with his new Panasonic HDC-SD600. He likes travelling a lot and just came back from France with his new camcorder. It seemed that he interrupted a problem when he tried to import the video into FCE4 for editing. So he turned to me for help and gave me gifts of Disneyland Paris.
I connected HDC-SD600 to my MacBook Pro. Unfortunately, FCE 4 on my MacBook could not deal with HDC-SD600 video neither. My uncle looked a little disappointed. I searched this problem via Google, I noticed that SD600 records video in AVCHD and the original format is .MTS file with 1080/60p 28Mbps: MPEG-4 AVC/H.264. So I needed to convert this format to a format which FCE 4 supports, such as .MOV format. I found lots of software which claim that can convert .MTS files to .MOV files.
But I finally chose Aunsoft MTS Convert for Mac because this is the only professional MTS converting software I can find in Mac APP Store which I’m used to purchase APPs from. Everything was smooth after I used this software and my uncle was so pleased that I had solved his problem.
Now I’d like to share this software with you guys, it’s very easy to use and I write a fast guide.
Step 1. Load SD600 videos to Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac.
Click the "Add" button to load the 1080/60p .mts videos. You may also drag and drop the video footage to the application UI to add videos.
Step 2. Choose MOV output format.
Click the "Format" option, and choose HD Video > H.264 HD Video(*.mov) as output format. The Mac Panasonic video converter will convert SD600 1080/60p MTS videos to H.264 MOV for FCE 4. The output video will keep the original video resolution with high quality.You also can choose QuickTime Movie Format > Apple InterMediate Codec(AIC) (*.mov) as output format.
Step 3. Convert Panasonic SD600 videos to MOV for FCE 4.
Click the convert button on the bottom-right corner, and the Mac Panasonic video converter will start converting.
Wait for a while and you'll get the perfectly compatible output video with FCE 4, enjoy it!
