How can I Insert AVCHD files to Keynote?

Part 2: How to insert the converted AVCHD video file to Keynote?
To be able to use AVCHD (.mts/.m2ts) files in Keynote, we would recommend transcode AVCHD media to QuickTime .mov format, which Keynote will recognize and play well. This requires third party software like HD Video Converter for Mac. Read on to find the steps required to encode MTS/M2TS files to MOV for use in Keynote on Mac.
Step 1: Install and run HD Video Converter for Mac as the best AVCHD to Keynote Converter. Click ‘Add File’ button to import your source media to it.
Step 2: Select MOV as output format
From ‘Profile’ list, choose ‘General Video’ > ‘MOV – QuickTime Video (*.mov)’ or ‘‘HD Video’ > ‘HD MOV Video (*.mov)’ as target format.
Standard MOV output under ‘General Video’ column
HD MOV output under ‘HD Video’ column
Important: If you’ve loaded a number of video clips to do batch conversion, please do remember ticking off ‘Apply to All’ option before you start.
Step 3: Set advanced settings
If necessary, you can click ‘Settings’ button and go to ‘Profiles Settings’ panel to modify video and audio settings like video encoder, resolution, video bit rate, frame rate, aspect ratio, audio encoder, sample rate, audio bit rate, and audio channels. 3D settings are also available.
Step 4: Start AVCHD (.mts/.m2ts) files to MOV Conversion on Mac
When ready, click ‘Convert’ button to start conversion. As soon as the conversion is complete, you can click ‘Open Folder’ button to get the generated MOV file and embedding it to Keynote easily.
If you don’t want to wait for the entire conversion process, you can tick off ‘Showdown computer when conversion completed’ and go away to do other things.
1. Drag the converted .mts/.m2ts file from the Finder to the slide canvas or to a media placeholder.
2. Click Media in the toolbar, and then click Movies in the Media Browser. Select a file, and then drag it to the slide canvas or to a media placeholder.
3. Choose Insert > Choose, and then navigate to the movie file you want. Select it, and then click Insert. Drag the movie to where you want it on the slide canvas.
4. When you add media files to your slideshow, make sure that they will be available if you transfer your document to another computer. When saving your document, make sure to select “Copy audio and movies into document” in the Save window after you choose Save or Save As. (If you don’t see the option, click the disclosure triangle next to the field, and then click Advanced Options.)
