AVI is an universal format that can be used by all editing software.

You can launch the app from Application folder. <br /><br />Step 2: <b>Import AVCHD MTS/M2TS files</b>. <br />There are two ways for you to add AVCHD footage to Final Mate for Mac. The first way is to import files from camcorder, the other is from computer. <br /><br />- Import AVCHD MTS/M2TS files from camcorder to the program <br />If you haven't copies your AVCHD footage to your computer, you can directly connect your camcorder to your Mac machine and launch Final Mate for Mac to capture AVCHD footage. Follow included camcorder wizard to easily transfer MTS.M2TS videos to the program. Imported videos will be listed in Camcorder Tab of Final Mate for Mac main interface. <br /> <br />- Import AVCHD MTS/M2TS files from computer to the program <br />Or you can add AVCHD footage from your computer.

I have a fuji s2000hd, i loaded the video onto my computer, but i can't get my movies to import onto my editing program


I understand your problem and I have the same camera that videos in MP4 format (H.264) which is not user-friendly to windows movie maker, therefore, I downloaded or purchased a program that converts these MP4 file back into .AVI format, with no loss in quality, and then added them to windows movie maker on Vista, which then would accept the .AVI format to put the clips together. Once saving to your computer after the files are compiled and can then send the movie you have made to Windows DVD to turn into a DVD formatted movie. Works for me everytime. Unfortunately, this is a time consuming process but has been worth it for me.

hi there
your camcorder records in AVCHD format which is a bit specialised at the moment, so your going to need special software to edit it.
you can get sony vegas movie studio 8 from amazon for about £30 ish and that will do the job nicely.

be warned .............. you will need a large hard drive (100 gig ish) as it takes a large amount of room to work, also a 3 gig cpu and a mid to high end video card.

Convert Sony HDR-XR550V AVCHD to Apple ProRes for FCP with AVCHD to Prores...


Sony Handycam HDR-XR550V records your memories and snap 12.1-megapixel photos directly to the massive 240GB hard disk drive (HDD). The shooting quality of the HDR-XR550V is impressive and naturally lives up to its flagship status and price. In line with Blu-ray formats in the market, recording is supported up to 24Mbps. High definition videos are recorded at 1920 x 1080 resolutions primarily to the in-built HDD. Picture quality was sharp and crisp, a result which was equally pleasing when viewing on a HD monitor or TV. <br /><br />Many people say Sony HDR-XR550V is the best hard drive camcorder from Sony at the moment and its excellent performance has won hearts of many customers. A lot of our customers use Sony HDR-XR550V for recording family videos, such as holiday vacation at east coast beach, your children?s birthday party or your pet?s playing video. In most cases, they want to do some basic editing and make great home movies to preserve their memories with highest quality. <br /><br />For windows users, it might be not such a problem as bundled software from Sony Picture Motion Browser is capable of basic editing and output videos to BD/DVD or upload to YouTube. But <b>How do you edit AVCHD on Mac OS X</b>? <br /><br />Final Cut Pro 6.0.1 update adds AVCHD transfer capabilities but is everything ok now? <br /><br />Apple's own Final Cut Studio 2 suite had a minor update for Final Cut Pro to version 6.0.1 which added the capability to transfer the AVCHD footage. But is everything really so promising for Mac users? I guess not. We?ve been receiving complaints and problems from our customers about their frustrating experience with AVCHD on final cut pro 6 or 7. <br /><br />Is there a simple and useful tool for Mac users to handle AVCHD for smooth editing in FCP without rendering? <br /><br />Aunsoft Studio nearly released product on Mac OSX <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac</a></b> is specifically designed for camcorder users to easy <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">handle, convert, share, playback AVCHD, TOD & MOD</a></b> high definition videos. <br /><br />In the article, I will take Sony HDR-XR550V as an example to show how to convert AVCHD MTS/M2TS video footage to Apple ProRes for smooth editing in Final Cut Pro 6 & 7. <br /><br />1. Capture/Import Sony XR550V AVCHD files to Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac. <br />There are two ways to import videos to Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac: you can directly capture video recordings from camcorder to the program or you can browser videos from your computer. <br /><br />- Capture Sony XR550V AVCHD videos from camcorder. <br />Connect camcorder to computer via USB cable, and then launch Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac in Application folder. With built-in wizard, you can easily to capture mts video files from XR550V to the program. Select ?Import? instead of Backup to quickly capture videos from camcorder. You can find imported videos under Camcorder tab in the main interface of Final Mate. <br /> <br />- Import Sony XR550V mts videos from computer. <br />If you have already backup all your video recordings from XR550V to your computer, you can browse your video path and the software will automatically show your AVCHD clips in Resource tab. <br /><br />2. Merge Sony DSC-XR550V AVCHD files into one movie for conversion. <br />Click the drop-down button of ?Add Movie? icon and choose ?For Conversion? to create a blank movie. <br /><br />Once you?ve imported your video footage, drag and drop the video clips from Camcorder Tab (imported from your camcorder) or Resource Tab (imported from your computer) to the blank movie in Movies Tab.
