Import AVCHD Lite Video to iMovie with Best AVCHD Lite Converter for Mac
« on: March 30, 2011, 09:59:13 PM »

AVCHD Lite is a subset of AVCHD format, which identifies devices that are capable of 720p/30fps recording only. Comparing with Full HD, the 720p/30fps video is recorded in the normal AVCHD 720p/60 format, but every other frame is duplicated, resulting in thirty actual frames per second. Apple has made it clear that iMovie 09’ is able to edit the AVCHD Lite video, but I hang out the video editing forums, questions like “I wasn’t able to import AVCHD Lite to iMovie…” come up from time to time. For those who have got into trouble when importing the AVCHD Lite MTS video to iMovie 08’ (or even 09’), the following guide might be a trick to solve the problem. In order to import the AVCHD Lite video files generated by Panasonic AVCHD Lite Cameras such as Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT1, Panasonic DMC-ZS35, etc. to iMovie, you need to convert your avchd lite videos to MOV format so as to be editable with iMovie 08 or iMovie 09 with Brorsoft AVCHD Lite Converter for Mac.

Step 1. Load Panasonic DMC-ZS35 AVCHD Lite files or Lumix DMC-FT1 videos to the Best MAC AVCHD Lite Converter.
Connect Panasonic DMC-ZS35 camera or Lumix DMC-FT1 to iMac or Macbook via USB cable and then run Brorsoft Mac AVCHD Lite Converter as the best Panasonic AVCHD Lite to MOV Converter. Click Add button to import AVCHD Lite recordings to be converted.

Step 2. Choose HD MOV as output format for iMovie so as to import the converted MOV videos to iMovie.
Click Format option and choose HD Video->H.264 HD Video (*.mov) as the output video format. To get proper video files, you are allowed to set output video parameters by clicking “Settings” button. And the parameters I recommend are listed as following (This will prevent you from suffering video quality loss to the greatest extent) :
Codec H.264
Size: 1280*720p
Bitrate: 8000kbps
Frame Rate: 30/29.97
Audio :
Codec: AAC
Sampling rate: 48khz
Bitrate: 320kbps
Channels: 6

Step 3. Start to convert AVCHD Lite Video to MOV for iMovie
Hit Convert button, the AVCHD Lite video to MOV for iMovie conversion will be started immediately. After converting, just import the converted videos to iMovie 08’ (or even 09’) for further editing.
Brorsoft MTS Converter for Mac, working as the best MAC AVCHD Lite converter, also has a perfect performance in converting other Panasonic AVCHD Lite cameras, like Panasonic DMC-ZS3/TZ7, DMC-GH1, DMC-GH2, DMC-TZ10, DMC-FZ40, DMC-FZ35, DMC-FZ38, DMC-FZ45,DMC-TS1/FT1, DMC-TS2/FT2 and DMC-FX75. Hope you could enjoy it.
