Hello Again,

Yesterday I posted a thread asking if anyone could help me solve a converion problem as from VLC files to something compatiable with the new iMovie11

I am a Tard! They are not VLC files, but .mts file types

How in the world can I convert this to something that iMovie will accept.

Thank you.

You're not a "tard" (I assume that's short for TARDIS) -- the maker of your camera is.

MTS stands for MPEG Transport Stream. MPEG is a fine format but unsuitable for editing, so why any consumer camera would use it is a mystery.

Anyway, to convert it you can use the free MPEG Streamclip (which may require the $30 MPEG-2 component to work with MPEG-2 transport streams).

So these are AVDHD files from a digital camera or camcorder?

If so which make/model?

iMovie supports standard AVCHD and AVCHD lite files via the camera import method. There are exceptions but that's worth trying first.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Please use the reputation system if you think you've been helped - top right of this post
