AVCHD on Avid MC Tips-Fast & Effect MTS Import into Avid Media Composer 5 under Mac OS X

Summary: With this awesome guide, you can get the AVCHD workflow for Avid MC - How to smoothly import and edit AVCHD .mts files in Avid Media Composer.

If you are a videographer, whether professional or non-specialist, you may usually encounter some importing issues when attempting to edit MTS files in Avid Media Composer 5/5.5/6/6.5. Let’s see some frequently asked questions on this.

Q1: Import MTS to Avid MC 5.0

“I’m using Avid media composer 5.0, can anyone help me with importing .mts files? I have a 1 hour of shootings, when import MTS to Avid Media Composer, I found the recording is not supported by Avid. Any suggestions?”

Q2: Sony MTS with Media Composer 5.5

“I am trying to import hours of MTS files recorded from a Sony 550 (consumer AVCHD) into Media Composer 5.5. Several methods work (many posted elsewhere in the forum have been tried) but with significant drawbacks. An import of the MTS files directly into Avid takes a long time and looks pretty pixelated once complete. Any Fast & Effect MTS Import into Avid MC5.5?”

Q3: AVCHD workflow for MC

“I'm considering switching back to Avid from FCP and I'm looking for a solid tutorial for the AVCHD workflow (specifically from a GH3 camera). I searched the Avid Knowledge Base and Panasonic's site with no luck (!). All that keeps coming up is the incredibly comprehensive EDITING AVCHD WITH FCP tutorial! Is there anything like that for Avid?”

As you see, many folks are talking about how to import MTS files into Avid Media Composer for editing without problems. Well, although Avid claimed it supports AVCHD, the highly compressed AVCHD format is not ideal for editing yet- even if Avid can successfully ingest your MTS videos, it still needs a long time for rendering. As far as I know many users meet the similar trouble due to they used Avid Media Composer with the old version 5.0/5.5. You'd better upgrade Avid to 6.0 or 6.5. If you want to use an easy way to solve the trouble, you can convert AVCHD .mts/.m2ts to a native format, DNxHD codec file, for directly transferring to Avid MC for further editing. Along with some help from the MTS Converter for Mac, it can be done. Here I share with you a simple guide on how to convert AVCHD MTS files to DNxHD format for Avid MC editing flawlessly.

Downloading the App- Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac

Overall, the program is a professional yet easy-to-use MTS to DNxHD Converter on Mac OS X which can not only convert Panasonic GH3, Sony FS100, Sony FS700, Sony RX100, Canon VIXIA HF G20, etc recorded MTS files to Avid editable videos, but also provide simple video editing functions for you. The Mac AVCHD Converter can convert HD videos from HD camcorders or DVs (like JVC, Panasonic, Sony and Cannon) for editing in Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Pro X, Final Cut Express, iMovie, Avid MC, Adobe Premiere Pro etc. If you meet the MTS in Avid MC issues on PC, get the equivalent Windows version MTS/M2TS Converter. Just download it and follow the tutorial below to get the work done.

Guide: Transcoding MTS files to Avid DNxHD for smooth editing

Step 1: Launch the recommended AVCHD to Avid MC Converter for Mac program and then click the adding button to import your MTS/M2TS files to it.

Step 2: Click Format on the main interface and choose Avid Media Composer > Avid DNxHD(*.mov) as output format.

Step 3: Click Settomgs to set video resolution(1920×1080/1440×1080/1280×720/720×480), bitrate(from 1Mbps to 20Mbps), frame rate (24p/30p) for easily editing in Avid MC.

Step 4: Start the AVCHD to DNxHD MOV Mac conversion for Avid Media Composer by clicking the “Convert” button. Then you can get the converted .mov files for editing in Avid MC 5/5.5/6/6.5 by clicking the “Open” button.

More helpful features of the Mac MTS to MOV Converter:

1. Check the “Merge into one file” box to join several MTS clips together if you need.

2. Editor (next to “Add” icon)- click to set deinterlace, trim, crop, add watermark, etc.

Once the MTS Mac conversion is done, you can transfer MTS footage into Avid MC for editing smoothly on Mac with ease.

    overclock gpu (Tuesday, 22 November 2016 22:53)

    Laptops have terrible cooling systems; I doubt you could overclock one significantly, even if it did have an unlocked multiplier. Also, as this is a non K Intel processor, it most likely does not have an unlocked multiplier, so overclocking will depend on whether you can modify the motherboard bus speed.
