I've been using this, but now when I'm editing in Premiere Pro CS6 I'm getting VERY choppy playback, basically not viewable on the review of footage I'm trying to catalog.

Not sure, but perhaps something is going awry in the conversion??

So apparently iMove 10.0 handles avchd natively now, according to the update notes.

I did an import from a Canon Vixia HF20 (which uses AVCHD) yesterday and the import was much faster than in previous versions of iMovie, (though not instantaneous). Also, I looked inside the iMovie Library package and saw that upon import the AVCHD clips (which have the .mts extension in their original form) were copied and converted to .MOV. These .MOV's were hundreds of MB, but still I think smaller in size than the AIC versions would have been. So that is good. But I don't know if they are just being re-packaged or actually transcoded. Anyone know?

Convert MTS Files to Editable Quicktime MOV

Some AVCHD files arenít compatible with mac tools such as Compressor, iMovie etc. And the MOV is the Apple Quicktime common editable format.

wHY not use imelfin video converter for mac. So you can easily import it to Final Cut Pro on Mac for further editing.

I use ClipWrap for all my re-wrapping and/or conversions ... I know FCPX 10.1 can import AVCHD files, but I like to convert my AVCHD Sony media into ProRes with a .mov wrapper and then import that media or parts of what I need in FCPX..Works very smooth and less strain on the CPU during optimizing media import..

I've had success with Final Cut X and Final Cut 6 & 7 (log and transfer, not log and capture).

Most often, though, I use iHDclip (which is in the app store). I think it was free when I got it. It's $9.99 now, but $10 might be worth saving all the time of looking for something else.
