Default Convert Panasonic HDC-HS900 60p AVCHD to 30p AIC for editing in iMovie

Panasoni HDC-HS900 can record Full HD video, offer 1080/60p recording, and have the capability of recording 3D content when using Panasonic’s optional 3D conversion lens (VW-CLT1). But it is not easily to transcode Panasonic HDC-HS900 footages to iMovie for editing, why?

There are mainly two reasons why you can not transfer AVCHD files from Panasonic HDC-HS900 to iMovie, incuding iMovie 8/9/11. Firstly, the recordings with the codec H.264/MPEG-4 are highly compressed for saving storage space and smooth playback, but the H.264 files are not suitable for editing, so editing H.264 MTS files in iMovie is always a headaching problem for editors. Secondly, iMovie can not always successfully recognize footages at 60fps or 50fps so far. So if you want to put 1080/60p/50p files to iMovie, you will meet the importing problem sometimes.

How can it be solved?
To sovle the importing problem, the first thing you should understand is that Apple InterMediate Codec is the most compatible video format for iMovie. Thus, you need a powerful and professional AVCHD to iMovie Converter to convert 1080/60p AVCHD to AIC.
