Download, install and run AVCHD to iMovie Converter...
Toast & VLC...
Thanks Aqua for the quick response,
just one more question I want to throw out there. Will my MacBook, (specs, below) be able to even handle editing and compressing these larger ram hungry formats, like AVCHD files. Or am I going to pretty much find out after I install these programs as above described, that this computer won't be able to deal with it?
Is my hardware sufficient?
Once converted to AIC, editing will be easy enough even on a Mac Mini it appears...
Not sure how long the conversion takes though.
That sounds good. Thanks for the forum link. I have read some other forums on this and most seem to say that the converting uses lots of ram and takes some time.
If I wanted to convert AVCHD to Mpeg4, I guess I would first have to ;
1 Convert AVCHD files to AIC
2 Then convert AIC files to Mp4
So 2 steps to get to mp4? Sounds like a lot of converting time. I guess there is no easy way around dealing with AVCHD files.
