User Question: How do I make iMovie’11 work with Canon 1080/60p AVCHD files?

“I am having a problem getting iMovie’11 to work with my 1080/60p AVCHD .mts files (NTSC) that I shot on a Canon VIXIA HF R50 camera. I found many people said iMovie’11 is unable to handle 1080-60p videos in AVCHD format. Is this true? If so, what should I possibly do to make iMovie’11 accept Canon 1080/60p AVCHD footage? Any suggestions? Thanks a lot for your help.”

If you are shooting with a Canon VIXIA R50, VIXIA HF G30, VIXIA G20, VIXIA HF R40, VIXIA R42, VIXIA HF R500, VIXIA R400, Canon XA10, Canon XA20, Canon XA25 or something similar, you may get footage in AVCHD format with .mts file extension. AVCHD is a file-based format primarily for use in high definition consumer camcorders, which is good for recording/capture and delivery, but not suitable for editing and playback. That’s why people sometimes need a Canon MTS file Converter for Mac/Windows to convert them first before editing.
