Searching for a Panasonic MTS to QuickTime Converter for Mac

I searched for a Panasonic MTS to QuickTime Converter for Mac via Google, but the resulted converter software didn’t do what I wanted. I’ve made numerous attempts, but each time I convert the video it is jittery so the video almost skips and pauses. I need a solution to this.
