Have you found any tool that can easily fix all the issues of format incompatibility? Canon VIXIA AVCHD Converter for Mac is the best choice for you to convert Canon VIXIA HF R40/HF R42/HF R400 to AIC .mov for iMovie.

I have a Canon Vixia HF R400, which is wonderful to be taken to record full HD videos(AVCHD) when I’m travelling. Whereas, when I wanna edit those AVCHD MTS footage in iMovie 11 before sharing with my friends, I met problems: the iMovie handled with the 1080 60p files so slowly, and I couldn’t edit my videos smoothly.

I searched the Canon Vixia HF R400 and iMovie on Google, and found the other users are also facing the importing problems. Some guys suggest to use Canon Vixia HF R400 to record MP4 video to avoid the limitations of AVCHD v2 … so, iMovie 11 could support it. While, the videos with AVCHD has better quality, if you stick with the AVCHD(MTS/M2TS) files from Canon Vixia HF R400, you need to seek for another workaround.

Well, I’ve found out the alternative solution to fix the Canon Vixia AVCHD in iMovie issues including Canon Vixia HF R400, Vixia HF R40, Vixia HF R42, etc. If you are also the Canon VIXIA owner and had the similar trouble with iMovie, go through the article to check out the solution.

So how to import/load video clips from VIXIA HF R400 into iMovie 11 for editing smoothly with no problems? The reason behind that you can’t edit Canon AVCHD MTS files in iMovie is due to the format and codec. AVCHD MTS is a delivery codec rather than editing codec and the 1080 60p is a non-standard format for NLE. The best method to solve those problems is to transcode Canon .mts to iMovie most compatible format, Apple InterMediate Codec .mov with Brorsoft Mac MTS to iMovie Converter.

Overall, this MTS Converter comes with supports for a wide range of video editing software and media devices, including Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, iMovie and Final Cut Express. It helps you convert Sony as well as Panasonic, Canon AVCHD recording to any editable format like MPEG-2, DNxHD, ProRes, AIC. mov, etc as you need without any quality loss.
