Edit & convert AVCHD from Sony HDR-XR200 on a Mac
  • A Sony HDR-XR200 user tried many ways on his Macbook Pro to deal with the .mts files that his Sony HDR-XR200 creates. He wanted to edit some wedding footages shot by his camcorder recently but failed to do that. Then he got voltaic and flamingo trial, but they seem really slow. And although he heard Apple made an intermediary codec for FCP/Express/iMovie, He was still not able to drag the .mts files into any of them or find a specific drop-down menu to help get things rolling. Actually, he got a step missing. To edit AVCHD from Sony HDR-XR200 in such software needs transcoding AVCHD files from Sony HDR-XR200 camcorder to FCP or iMovie editable video format MOV for further importing and editing.
    Also, he was seeking for other software that will allow him to quickly edit AVCHD without getting away from Mac and building a PC for Sony Vegas. So, in my opinion, Brorsoft AVCHD/MTS to MOV Converter for Mac is all his need, not only for its conversion function-converting Sony HDR-XR200 AVCHD to FCP or iMovie MOV, but also for the built-in editing function-do trimming, cropping, watermarking, adjusting contrast, brightness, saturation, etc.
