Im trying to create a nice movie using clips i took from a trip to New York in october. I used a panasonic camcorder that records in 1080p AVCHD, which inturn is an MTS. format.
This format doesnt seem compatable with iMovie 11.
I cant get to grips with why such a wide spread HD video format cant be used on such a state of the art editing software
Any help guys?
Id rather not buy a different piece of software or a new camera thank you very much
iMovie supports many AVCHD cameras, but some only in certain modes:
iMovie '11 Supported Cameras
If yours isn't one of those supported, you'll need a conversion utility.
iMovie works well with AVCHD, but on import, it converts it to Apple Intermediate Codec. For the reasons, see this User Tip.
