Wondering if there’s some kind of plug-in or converter I need to be able to edit AF100 AVCHD files in iMovie?
”Hello, there, I am a novice with video editing. Wondering if there’s some kind of plug-in or converter I need to be able to edit AF100 AVCHD files in iMovie. My work required me to edit a couple of MTS clips in Apple iMovie. The MTS video files are taken with a Panasonic AF100 camera. The thing is my colleague only gave me several MTS files without AVCHD folder structure kept, and I can not get iMovie to open up AF100 AVCHD MTS files natively. Does anyone know what I can possibly do??? I would really appreciate any help. Thank you so much!”
