Convert/Edit HMC150 AVCHD MTS Videos to FCE and Distribute via BlipTV and TubeMogul
I am recording on a Panasonic HMC-150 (typically in 1080p30 and 1080p24) and do my editing in FCE. However I need a program to convert the recorded files into something FCE can recognize. 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. After editing, I need Distributee to different sites through BlipTV and TubeMogul.
