If Premiere Pro cannot import AVCHD, you will need

something that can. I know Sony Vegas can do this, and I think there are others. You might want to consider a different camera format if your editor cannot handle what the camera produces.

MTS to mov
Jul 20, 2010 12:14PM PDT

I have a JVC Everio HD300 (AVCHD) camcorder,i am annoyed with the MTS files, for they counldn't be edit on Adobe Premiere but now i found out a fastest and easiest way to solve it-just use a professional HD Video converter which can convert MTS/TOD/MOD to wmv, mov, mp4, avi, etc. without any problem.The software seems to do a decent job. I've had good results converting the .mts files to .mov, with the settings h.264, 12000kbps, 1280*720, 25fps, aac. The files look good on my PC running Adobe Premiere, edit easily, and convert well to DVD format.
