I do online tutorials and Distributee to roughly a couple dozen different sites through BlipTV and TubeMogul. So far I've been limited to recording in 720p30 because it's the best format that I can work with through iMovie (I use imovie to import the raw video, export as a quicktime and then import into FCE for final editing then do a final QT conversion to mpeg-4 for upload; and to be honest not real excited on the quality I'm getting as a finished video. So I need a program which can let me Create online tutorials with FCE and convert Panasonic HMC-150 1080p MTS to high quality FCE suitable format for editing.

Once you've imported your video footage, drag and drop the video clips from Camcorder Tab to the blank movie in Movies Tab. In this way, all video clips will be merged as one single movie for conversion.

Step3. Convert HMC-150 MTS files to FCE MOV.
