Importing Camcorder Footages to Devices/Applications for Editing

Many friends like to shoot videos very much with their camcorders. After videotaping, they may like to publish a movie with the footages via editing with some video editors like FCP, iMovie, Sony Vegas, Windows Movie Maker and more, and then share it with mobile devices such as the Nexus 10, Galaxy S4, etc. but as we know, the camcorder shootings, are mostly encoded with AVCHD MTS/AVCHD Lite, or sometimes MXF format, which are neither accepted by the video editors, nor by the mobile devices.

Now let's take a look at what these formats actually are:

High-definition MPEG Transport Stream video format commonly called "AVCHD"; AVCHD stands for "Advanced Video Codec High Definition used by Sony, Panasonic, and other HD camcorders; based on the MPEG-2 transport stream and supports 720p and 1080i HD video formats.

AVCHD Lite identifies a subset of AVCHD format, in which progressive-scan video is limited to 720p (1280x720 resolution) Announced in January 2009, the Panasonic DMC-ZS3/DMC-FT1/DMC-TZ7 digital cameras were the first digital cameras to offer AVCHD-lite movie mode. In these early models, the sensor was limited to 25fps (PAL)/30fps(NTSC), which was then recorded in a AVCHD 720p50/60 format bitstream (using picture flags to instruct the decoder to display each stored frame twice.) Since then, Panasonic has added AVCHD-lite to more of its camcorders and digital cameras. In newer models such as the DMC FZ-200, the sensor captures a full 50fps/60fps for video recording.

Multimedia format used by digital audio and video programs; contains captured audio and video data as well as metadata that describes the media stored in the file; designed by Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) as a standard container for audio and video data; can be converted into other formats, such as .AVI or .MOV.

As we can infer from the information above, these file formats are special, and will not be recognized by devices/applications, so if you want to import camcorder footages such as Panasonic Lumix FZ45 AVCHD Lite or Panasonic P2 MXF to the editors like FCP/iMovie for editing, you should convert Panasonic Lumix FZ45 AVCHD Lite to MOV or Panasonic P2 MXF to MOV via a professional Mac AVCHD Converter/Mac MXF Converter. Provided that you are a Windows user, you can try the Windows Version.

After the conversion, you will be able to edit the camcorder videos in FCP/iMovie and more. Besides, you can also you this powerful converter to convert videos to mobile devices like converting MTS to Nexus 10 and M4V to Galaxy S4 and so on.
