Needed to convert HC-V707 50p MTS-File to an iMovie friendly format
”Hi, guys, I’m looking for a 50p MTS Converter that can convert 50p videos taken with Panasonic HC-V707 camera to a MOV-File or something else that could be used in iMovie in a correct way. The video converter I now have can not encode 1080/50p slow motion mts videos completely and correctly. Can anybody kindly recommend a workable 50p AVCHD Converter for Mac? Many thanks for your help.”
