    Saving a movie in a file format recognizable by iMovie
    So, I have some MTS movie files that I wish to edit in iMovie.

    These files can't be imported since they were downloaded from the video camera prior to me getting my Mac (tsk, tsk iMovie...why such a hassle with this?). There are tons of posts existing that people can't get this to work.

    How can I convert the MTS file into a format that iMovie likes? And what file should it be?

    Does anyone have experience with this: imovie import MTS - How to import MTS video into Apple iMovie on Mac OS X with mts to imovie importing

    You might want to look at VoltaicHD and Videopier.

    The above tools base at least some of their conversion code on FFmpeg. Problem is that it appears that you have to download source code and compile it.
