“I can’t import any AVCHD file into Premiere CS6. I’m using Adobe Premiere and trying to import an AVCHD (*.mts)-File of 25 GB into Premiere. I read allready a lot of posts in different forums but didn’t find the right tool to do the job.”
You may be a HD camcorder fan like me, and you have got a Canon Vixia HF R42, Panasonic HC-V720, Sony HDR PJ380, Canon Vixia HF M52, JVC Everio GZ-EX300, Panasonic HC-X900, Sony HDR-TD30, Canon Vixia HF G20, Sony HDR-CX220, or Samsung QF20, etc, it’s great for us to take photos and record videos when we travel. These camcorders supports full HD videos recording, and recorded video format is AVCHD with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec. AVCHD video format is good to record videos but is not easy to use in editing software, like Adobe Premiere Pro in Mac. Premiere supported best video format is WMV/MPG format, so it’s a good choice to convert AVCHD MTS to WMV/MPG/MOV for Premiere Pro.
First you need to download UFUSoft AVCHD Converter for Mac, an easy-to-use yet powerful high-quality AVCHD converter, player and editor which is compatible with any Mac OS system. I’ve used this tool for a long time rewrapping Canon/Sony/JVC and Panasonic AVCHD MTS recordings for Adobe Premiere Pro. With it, I can effortlessly transcoding AVCHD files for smoothly editing in Premiere Pro CS5/CS6/CC7. If you’re editing AVCHD files with Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, After Effects, Pinnacle Studio, Sony Vegas Pro, Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Final Cut Express, chances are you already installed this great utility.
