    I goofed
    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).

    Specs:
    Mac Mini i5 (2014 High Sierra), iPhone X, Apple Watch, iPad Pro 12.9, AppleTV (4)
    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.

    it is a canon vixia, quite new.
    I am over seas and do not have my camera to interface directly into my lovely new mac , I am attempting to bring them in via usb from a WD passport.
    Thanks for your help
