I am buying PE9 for editing on my PC, but I also need to be able to convert AVCHD .mts files to something that can be imported into Final Cut software for editing. (I'll be doing some editing, but the bulk will be done by someone else using Final Cut.) Is PE9 appropriate for simply converting the AVCHD to .mov or .mp4 prior to any editing, or should I get something else in addition to PE9?
I tried to search on this topic, but didn't find anything. I apologize if I missed it.
Welcome to the forum.
For MOV files for FCP, I think that one of the best "converters" is Apple's QuickTime Pro (US$29 upgrade/unlock). It will do that conversion nicely. It also works well the other way, in getting many Mac formats/CODEC's ready to edit on the PC.
Thanks Hunt. Is QuickTime Pro only for MAC platforms, or can I put that on
Disregard my last email. I see QuickTime Pro is available for Windows.
