why does Aperture not support .mts videos?

    You'd have to ask Apple. See Aperture->Provide Aperture Feedback or (Apple - Feedback) to suggest enhancements to the program.

    Some more information would be helpful. For starters, what kind of camera? What version of Aperture? Specifically, what is/isn't happening?

     

    I have no problem importing MTS video from a Panny GH2. So the problem isn't necessarily MTS.

    Your camera uses AVCHD, like the Panasonic, so it might. Note that you cannot drag a MTS clip into Aperture to import it, but Aperture does find the clips buried in the AVCHD file structure when importing from the SD card.

     

    Hopefully someone with that camera will jump in here, but if not:

    Do you have iPhoto on your system? Try that.

    Is there an Apple store nearby? Take your card to the store and try it with Aperture.

    What is your primary video editing software? If Aperture won't read your video files directly, then your video editor can likely export to a format Aperture can use.

    Google this: "imovie sony dsc-hx20v". Some of what shows up might be of help.

    Glad the search helped. Don't know what to tell you about iPhoto quality, except that it isn't primarily video software, obviously, and may be doing a bit of resampling or something that is degarding the qulaity shown. BTW, if it works in iPhoto, it will likely work in Aperture, but no guarantees of course. Aperture may be the better cataloging solution if you anticipate lots of photos and videos.
