my iMac is Jan 2013 model with Mountain Lion X, and i read this
On OS X Lion and later, MPEG-2 playback functionality is built into QuickTime X. The QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component is not required and cannot be installed.
If it can't be installed and yet still does not work is this now aproblem for SQUARED5 to be working on ?
I am a relative newcomer to imovie and I have just faced the same issue.
After discovering that a lot of the free converters have their own watermark on your converted video, I finally downloaded a free (watermark free) app called macx video converter. It is easy to use
I am also on mountain lion
I hope this helps
yes I did use that link.
To be honest I haven't noticed any quality difference but some of the more experienced guys here may answer that question better.
I have used the free version rather than the pro version purely for the reason that I wanted to see if I liked the interface and ease of use before spending out on something that was too difficult but the free version seems to be doing the job for me.
I am finding the whole transition from windows very frustrating at times as I am not a computer expert but I am sticking at it.
It wasn't the first one I have tried but I decided on this one after reading these forums for hours
Great - I am about to give it a thorough test myself.
Like you I have just switched from Windows and am finding it great fun - but also an uophill struggle from time to time.
But i am loving FCP X for sure and will be using .mov files from my Canon ESO 650 D / Rebel T4i so shouldn;t be too much of a problem.
However i do have some .mts files from my Panasonic that I neeede to import into my current project - hence the need for a good quality converter!
I appreciate your help and if you want to stay in touch about stuff u can get me here or on firstname.lastname@example.org
I am currently using a panasonic SD90 (again a basic camcorder for my learning curve on filming) and my next buy is a Canon XA10. I have started filming on iframe (and it downloads great) but if I take any pics then it automatically reverts back to AVCHD which is a nuisance and Apple tell me that I would have to download the pics first and then reset it to iframe for it to stay in ifame but at least I understand the process now it has been explained to me.
I must say that I took out one to one and it has been worth every penny as it allows me to go into far more detail than the standard workshops. The staff have been great and very patient.
I am currently researching watermarking my film and photos for my next lession as from what I understand, goggle are saying that you have to either register or watermark your work or they will claim rights to it...I may be wrong but that is my current understanding of things.
I have downloaded iwatermark (again free) just to see how I get on with the interface and it is fine so far. I am very much a visual learner and once I am confidant I will look to purchase something that is pro level and easy to use.
Personally, I have made good experiences with the AppGeeker Video Converter for converting MTS files.
The utility has options to convert MTS for iMovie, iTunes and other Apple Products.
It is worth a try.
hi guys, As far as I know, there are several freeware supports to convert mts video to .MOV for imovie or QT on Mac OS. VLC Player and FFMpeg all great for convert .MTS video to .MOV on mac, I have use vlc player for years it works well on my PC.
Hi I found a solution for this. I have been using a freeware to convert MTS to MOV.
You can download the software from the link mentioned above and along with the software download the preset Re-wrap AVCHD for Quicktime - uncompressed Audio.
The preset converts MTS to MOV
