60fps video and iMovie Import issue? Solved!   
Does iMovie 11 properly handle 60fps video now? If you are currently having 60fps files and iMovie import issue, the post will tell you why iMovie not importing 60fps HD videos and offer the best and fasest solution.

_______________________________________________________________

Got one camcorder, like Sony NEX-5N, NEX7, A99, A65, Panasonic HC-V720, HDC-TM90 to record 1920*1080 Full HD MTS footage up to 60fps (50fps for PAL) and have met the incompatible erros when you tried importing 60fps videos to iMovie 8/9/11 for further editing? From googling, we find many users have the same issues:

Question1. "Whilst away snowboarding on my most recent trip, I recorded most days in 720p / 60fps (as it looks ultra smooth) and have just over 54Gb of footage; divided into five folders on my iMac (one for each day) with about 20 .mp4 files in each one. I assumed I could put together something decent on iMovie 11. Some Googling revealed that iMovie 10 does not support 60FPS. Is that right? And then how to get imovie easily working with these 60fps video? Any help would be appreciated."

Qustion 2. "I am a novice iMovie 11 user. I have footage in a 60fps camera that I imported into iMovie. When I import it, either with or without optimization, the video is very jumpy and the audio doesn't time with the footage at all. But 30fps footage imports into iMovie correctly. Is there any way to import the 60fps video correctly so that I don't have this problem, even if it means downgrading the quality?"

_______________________________________________________________

In fact, iMovie can't support the format 1080p@60fps because it is a nonstandard frame rate. If you want to natively ingest and edit the 60fps videos in iMovie, you have to firstly transcode 60fps footage it to a compatible frame rate with a native format by iMovie, like AIC. It means that you have to use a professional HD Video Converter for Mac to encode the 60fps video to Apple IntermediateCodec(AIC) yourself at 60p, and iMovie will let you edit a 24p or 30p project. Note that even if you shift your footage to AIC at 60p, iMovie will downgrade it to 24fps or 30fps on export (depending on what you chose), but it still doesn't look bad at all. It will just use the extra frames to make it smoother. If you shoot in 60fps and slow it down to 30fps, you are still using 30 frames to fill 30 frames. It will be much smoother.

If you attempt to transcode 60p video to AIC for using with iMovie, we would recommend Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac - Top 60fps HD Video to iMovie Converter.

How to Open AVCHD MTS files with VLC Media Player?
Summary: AVCHD files not playing in VLC? In this article, I will share my experience and offer an easy way to help you play Sony AVCHD .mts videos with VLC media player freely on Mac OS X Yosemite or Mavericks.

Introduction:
I seem to be the the band's servant for recording our concerts. They want free DVDs but I may quit the band. As I like freely movie making and I have done many videos for my own original music on Youtube. Recently, I find some interesting videos about a concert at the Michigan State University Community Music School of Detroit featuring the beginning band, the advanced band and the jazz band. Now I collect various footage, some I use are stolen footage from YouTube, some usually from different cameras owned by friends. Most recently a Sony Handycam. Posting at the YouTube channel of the MSU Detroit Community Music School or the band director's channel, but definitely not my channel.

_____________________________________________________________

This time my project required importing MTS video files from my buddy's Sony camcorder. The files would play in VLC, but would not import into any of the converter apps I already had installed (e.g., MPEG Streamclip). I use Duck Duck Go for search, because I distrust Google and I guard my privacy. I did a search for "Mac MTS to QuickTime convertor" and the Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac came up high on the list, so I bought that for $29. I was not a careful shopper -- I blame my pushy friend for this.

I like the wide variety of formats Pavtube converts and use it directly convert MTS video to VLC readable formats, Apple ProRes for FCP, Apple Intermediate Codec for FCE editing. Also I have used MPEG Streamclip for years. I like that because it genuinely is free. Although I may have sent them money as shareware. For freeware, it has a better interface than Pavtube.

In fact, VLC player is a powerful media player for viewing movies or videos on Mac and Windows. While, I find problems with low video quality or incapability of MTS video playback with VLC. An quick workaround I find to solve the issues is to convert the MTS files from Sony to common formats (like MP4, MOV, AVI, MKV, MPEG, etc.) to fit the local VLC media player with Mac MTS to VLC Converter from Pavtube. If you are Windows users, you can try MTS/M2TS Converter.

Overall, this program works successfully in MTS to MP4 conversion even you have a bunch of large MTS files. I have tried it to encode MTS to MP4, it turns out playing Canon, Sony, Panasonic MTS on Mac smoothly and at original quality. It's the best software application for Mac users. What's more, this converter also supports many of other video formats like MOV, MKV, AVI, WMV, FLV, MPG, SWF, etc. on Mac(Yosemite and Mavericks included).

_____________________________________________________________

Below is easy steps for you, you can convert Sony MTS to VLC player compatible formats for watching in few steps.

How to convert Sony MTS video files for VLC playback freely?

Step 1: Add mts video files

Run MTS to VLC Converter for Mac on your Mac computer. Transfer the individual .MTS file or MTS file structure from Sony to HDD first, and then click add to import the video files to the converter.


Step 2: Choose H.264 MP4 as output format.

In "Format" drop down list box, you may select best video format for plaing on Mac. To convert Sony MTS to MP4 format, if you want to get common MP4 files for playback, you can choose Common Video -> H.264 Video (*.mp4); if you want to get HD MP4 files to use, you can choose HD Video -> H.264 HD Video (*.mp4).


Step 3: Start Convert

Click "Convert" in the main interface to start transcoding Sony MTS footage to Mac H.264 MP4.

After conversion, you can use converted MP4 files for playback easiliy and smoothly.

Canon C500 MXF read errors in Premiere Pro CS6/CS5/CS4
Canon C500 MXF read errors in Premiere Pro CS6/CS5/CS4

Summary: If you get the importing error message while importing Canon C500 MXF files to Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, CS5 or CS4, Pavtube MXF Converter will be the best MXF to Adobe Premiere Pro solution for you.

Canon has officially announced the EOS C500, the professional 4K video camera output that it promised at the NAB trade show in April. A continuation of the concept of the C500, it can capture Raw 4K video footage and offers frame rates of up to 120fps in compressed 4K. It also captures 2K footage (2,048 x 1,080 pixels) at 12-bit, with 4:4:4 Y'CbCr chroma sub-sampling for high colour resolution. For 4K and 2K recording, uncompressed output is delivered to external recording systems via built-in dual 3G SDI ports. Dual HD-SDI monitor outputs support external live monitoring. Simultaneously, HD content can be written to dual onboard CF cards to provide proxy video for offline NLE systems.

___________________________________________

Canon C500 is very excellent, you may have bought a C500 camcorder and need to edit C500 files in Premiere Pro CS 4/5/6, but C500 MXF files are not well supported by Premiere Pro CS6, as you may encounter many audio and video problems, such as bitrate unsupported, and synchronization program.

We did a test, we had only been able to get 35Mbps and 25Mbps files to work in PPro CS4, we have to use CS5 or above to edit natively 50MBPS 422HD recordings with AMA MXF or Canon XF Plugin. To edit C500 MXF videos, you'd better upgrade to CS5/CS6. But some users can't upgrade to CS5/CS6, what will you do?

In fact, it is an easy solution for many users, it can save money and same time. The most importnat is that the conversion won't reduce the video qaulity. Here we run Pavtube MXF to Premiere Pro Converter to take an example. Below is the simple guide on how to convert C500 MXF movies to Premiere Pro CS4/CS5/CS6 supported formats.

___________________________________________

Just free download or buy Pavtube MXF Converter for Mac, and install on your Mac:

Step 1. After downloading, install and run this Mac MXF Converter for Premiere Pro, just copy the MXF files from the CF cards right to your hard drive, import the files to the software.

Step 2. Click "Format" bar to choose the output format. Click "Format > Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas > MOV (AVC)(*.mov) or MPEG-2 Video (*.mpg)" as output format. The MXF to Premiere CS Converter for Mac will convert Canon C500 MXF videos to MOV/MPG with the original video resolution.

Step 3. You can click "Settings" button to adjust the parameters, such as resolution, bitrate, etc.

Step 4. Click "Convert" button to start converting Canon C500 MXF to MOV/MPG for importing to Premiere Pro CS4/5/6 on Mac.

After the conversion is finished, just run Adobe Premiere Pro CS4/5/6 and import the .mpg or .mov files for editing. You will find the output video work perfectly on Adobe Premiere Pro CS.

PS. If you do not know how to import video to Adobe, please reference the following guide:

If not, why not be a good reader to follow the article below to know more details? This guide can teach you how to convert your Sony XAVC S to ProRes for smoothly editing in FCP 7.

The sensor of Sony A7S is big, the 35mm sensor with large pixels is good for high ISO and dynamic range, 12.2MP sensor optimized for 4K and low light video recording, with this excellent device you can get uncompressed 4:2:2 full HD in XAVC S format. While for some popular editing tools, you will find the XAVC S is not supported for popular editing apps, Final Cut Pro is such a typical one. So what's the available workflow for Sony A7S and FCP?

Except for FCP 7, such as iMovie/FCE, Premiere Pro, Premiere Elements, Avid/Sony Vegas, etc. Today here, in order to match the XAVC S recordings to FCP 7 well, we highly recommend you a XAVC S to FCP 7 Converter called Pavtube XAVC S Video Converter for Mac or Windows, which has the ability of handling HD videos with all popular editors or media players nicely.

Work Panasonic MTS with FCP 6 in Higher Quality
MTS to FCP 6 Workflow from Panasonic Lumix FZ20

Panasonic Lumix FZ200—is the Panasonic's flagship super-zoom digital camera. While recent models have been relatively minor upgrades. In terms of video, the Panasonic FZ200 can shoot up to 1080 60p video in AVCHD or MP4 formats. AVCHD formatted shooting, due to its big file size, often falls in several separated .MTS video clips. In that way, you may have some trouble for further editing in some popular tools, such like FCP. So do you know any details on best video formats for FCP?

Just as a friend reflected us that he has converted the Panasonic Lumix FZ200 MTS files to ProRes .mov, which is the best format for FCP with MTS/M2TS to FCP 6 Video Converter for Mac ( Pavtube MTS Converter for Mac ). He said it was so nice that he has never met before. It at present works so well and know he asked: I installed it on my Mac IOS 10.7.5, so do I need to buy it again if I wanna install it on another Mac 10.6.8?

Now, we are willing to share the specific process with you guys. Download the program from the official website and launch it with ‘Add videos' or ‘Add from folder'. Your files will be listed there and tick what you want.

Necessary Tips here: To get high quality of output videos for editing in FCP 6, you need to choose the correct selections in the types of ProRes codec. Here we may recommend the ‘Final Cut Pro'>>'Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) (*.mov)' for you.

*************************************

To customize MOV format for your player, you can click "Settings" button to adjust video and audio parameters. Get the videos size as 1080*720 and bitrates as ‘high quality', frame rate as 29.97, etc. Just select one you think as the most suitable to your formats.

Answers to the questions mentioned above: If you have bought the program, there's no need to purchase it again. You can move it to another PC and remember that you must clean your date. In other words, you can't work the program at the same time.

However, it is not associated with the QuickTime player or some other NELs. Or even enjoy MKV movies on Apple TV? Fortunately, some good solutions are offered here:

**********************************

Solution1.Perian---A nice plugin for playing MKV on QuickTime
Perian is a free, open source QuickTime component that adds native support for many popular video formats like the MKV. When you've had Perian installed, you have to quit QuickTime completely and then restart it. Note that you don't just close the QuickTime Window; in fact, it's still running in the background. To do this, QuickTime can update its format and encoding library.

Note: If the Perian plugin is no longer working in your Mountain lion or Mavericks, there is another doable workaround. You can take this article for a reference about how to watch MKV on Mac Yosemite and Maverricks.

Solution 2.VLC Media Player---Play MKV well on Mac
As one of the best free MKV players on Mac, it can also play various other regular video/audio formats, including AVI, WMV, MP4, MOV, FLV, MPEG, etc. and even DVDs and CDs. With it, you don't need to install any codecs or filters to play MKV videos on Mac


Solution 3. MPlayer OS X---Handle MKV files well
Media Player Classic is another great free MKV video player for all the Mac users. This player emerged out of the Google Codes project as an attempt to create an all-round player. MPlayer OSX is a simple but powerful video player designed specifically for Mac and can handle MKV playback.

To play MKV files with it, you need to first install the updated Matroska Pack: run Media Player Classic and click View > Options to disable Matroska and then install the latest Pack.

Best Way to Convert XAVC MXF to FCP 7 for Editing

Summary: You may find Final Cut Pro 7 won't import XAVC MXF files smoothly. The easy workaround is to convert XAVC MXF to FCP 7 more "edit" friendly codec- Apple ProRes codec. If you are looking for a wise solution about how to import XAVC MXF to FCP 7 for editing, you may have interests about this article. Here is how.

*******************************************

Several questions are found in XAVC MXF to FCP forum:
"I am working with a new Sony FS7 video camera that records in XAVC codec as .mxf files - Same as the F5 or F55. I have installed the new ProApps update that is supposed to make it easy to use XAVC in Final Cut 7 which I still use and have also updated Quicktime 7. However neither Quicktime 7 nor FCP 7 will open the .mxf files. I have spent time on the FS7 discussion boards and no one can figure out why. Others are also having the same problem though."

"How do I import XAVC MXF files from my hard drive into Final Cut Pro X? Why I only got the video with no sound after importing to FCP 7?"

"I got the XAVC MXF files from my stuff without original video information. It can be played well in VLC player. However when I import them to FCP 7 for editing, there is no image. What's wrong? "

As we all know, playing and editing .mxf footage on Mac is a big problem. The users may be not so familiar with the MXF video format. And they are told that FCP 7/X can support and edit MXF videos perfectly. But things are not so simple. Owing to video codec, computer configuration and operating environment, it is difficult for FCP to recognize XAVC MXF videos. Even though the users can import the XAVC MXF videos to FCP 7/X, some video and audio problems will occur as the above users met. What's more, FCP 7/X can hardly support single XAVC MXF files without video folder. Considering the easy of use and lossless quality, Pavtube Video Converter for Mac is highly recommended here for you to solve your XAVC MXF to FCP 7 incompatible issues.



*******************************************

How to convert XAVC MXF to FCP 7 for editing?

Except for that, there are no time limitation, no virus, and no unnecessary bundle apps while downloading. After that, click "Add Video" button to load your XAVC MXF files. You can load several files at once thanks to "Add from folder" button.

Step 2: Click the "Format" bar to get the drop-down menu and you can get "Final Cut Pro>>Apple ProRes codec", including ProRes 422, ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 422 (LT), ProRes 422 (Proxy) and ProRes 4444. Choose the proper one you want. Here, we suggest you to choose "Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)" as the best output format.

Tips: Apple ProRes 422 and Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) have higher qualities. Apple ProRes 422 (LT) and Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy) have smaller sizes. You can choose according to your requirement.



Step 3: Click "Settings" button to customize the output video and audio settings by yourself. But if you are not good at it, you'd better use the default parameters, they will ensure you a good balance between file size and image quality basically. You can change the resolution, bit rate, frame rate as you need.

Step 4: When everything is done, you can take a preview by hitting "Play" button. If you are satisfied with the final result, you can click "Convert" button to finish the conversion work.

I was troubled by the issue- Sony Vegas Pro 13 not seeing 4K XAVC codec. Do you have such experience likewise? If you have got some 4K XAVC files from Sony FDR-AX33, you would probably come across the problem. Let’s look at the XAVC to Sony Vegas Pro 13 importing issues in detail.

"I placed an order on the website for Sony FDR-AX33. I learnt that this camcorder could record videos at 4K with XAVC codec. Although I have not received my camcorder, I am wondering does Sony Vegas Pro 13 support 4K XAVC videos."

"Is there anyone having an issue getting Sony Vegas Pro 13 to accept the 4K XAVC clips from Sony FDR-AX33? Why do the Sony camera divisions and SCS not work together to ensure that their own NLE can accept their own camera footage when a camera is released. It's crazy."

Although Sony states that the Vegas 13/12 supports native XAVC editing, we find it's not easy to edit XAVC in Sony Vegas Pro 13/12/11. To ingest 4K XAVC to Sony Vegas Pro 13 perfectly, Pavtube Video Converter is highly recommended to convert 4K XAVC to Sony Vegas Pro 13 native format-MPG.

Plus, it supports encoding camera shootings in different formats to video editing software compatible file types to meet your different needs.
Tips: For Mac users, you can get the Pavtube Video Converter for Mac.

*********************************************

Encoding FDR-AX33 4K XAVC to Sony Vegas Pro 13:

Step 1: Run the best 4K XAVC to Sony Vegas Pro 13 Converter, and click the "Add video" button to load 4K XAVC videos from Sony FDR-AX33. If you want to load several files at one time, "Add from folder" button is available.

Step 2: Click "Format" bar to determine output format. Follow "Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas" and select "MPEG-2(*.mpg)" as the output format. Besides, you can also choose WMV (VC-1) (*.wmv) if you want to get a relatively smaller output file.

Step 3: Adjust video and audio parameters, including the bit rate of video and audio, the codec of video and audio, video size, sample rate, frame rate, audio channels, etc., in the Profile Settings by hitting "Settings" button.

Step 4: Click "Convert" button to start encoding Sony FDR-AX33 4K XAVC files to MPG for importing to Sony Vegas Pro 13.

Conclusion: When the conversion task is finished, click "Open" button to get the exported files and then import the converted AX33 footage into Sony Vegas Pro 13 to do further editing without hassle. In addition, money saving bundles and deals is good news for you! Enjoy!

Open this program, when the main interface pops up in front of you, two buttons on the left corner can do us a big favor. '[b]Add video' and 'Add from folder'[/b]. The first one is aimed to load your video clips individually, while the second can load footage as the complete one.

Step 2.Choose the suitable output for DaVinci Resolve.

Now it is time to come to the output list. Don't worry you didn't find the item for DaVinci Resolve Lite, cause we know the best format is DNxHD MOV, so we suggest you to select the [b]'Avid Media Composer' -> 'DNxHD (*.mov)'[/b] as the best one. Just look the screen shot below.

Until now, with the latest H.265/HEVC codec released out, there are not so many devices that can input and output this kind of newest codec, no matter for digital camcorders or media devices. As I know that for now, the only two camcorders that can shoot this H.265/HEVC codec footage: Samsung NX1 and Samsung NX500. Due to this situation, we got some troubles in encoding H.265/HEVC videos on Windows 10/8.1/8/7/XP. Fortunately, we here can offer you two new H.265 encoders that can handle this job well.

Cinec is the only converter that allows you to export to Prores, H.264 and H.265 on a Windows PC.

Then on the output list, you can find the 'H.265 Video' on the '"HD Video" item for output. Since we are going to encode the H.265 footage, we suggest you to choose some best ones especially for Windows operation. In "Common Video" button, "H.264 Video Baseline/Main/High Profile" can be the suitable output ones. From H.265 to H.264? See the screen shot below!


Optional function for advanced users: "Settings" and "Edit" on the main interface, here we can adjust our output videos with the style that we want.

Log & Transfer Canon C500 MXF to Final Cut Pro 6 for editing on Mac

Summary: Trouble importing C500 MXF into Final Cut Pro 6? Is there a way I can import Canon C500 MXF files into FCP 6 for editing without rendering? With this awesome guide, you can smoothly import and edit MXF files in FCP 6 by transcoding MXF to Apple ProRes on Mac.

*********************************

Canon EOS C500 4K Digital Cinema Camera offers a Super 35mm, 8.85-megapixel CMOS image sensor, DIGIC DV III Image Processor and an expansive range of recording and output options specifically for 4K and 2K image acquisition. It can record super high resolution (4096×2160 pixels) videos in MXF format which are seldom seen in the market. Other resolutions such as 2048*1080 and 1920*1080 are also selectable with this C500.

I tried to import my C500 clips to FCP 6 with L&T and I met the "The files are unsupported" message in L&G window. I searched many information to look for the reason and solve the importing problem, but I failed. Many users said that it was likely to be the system. So I have to start to look for a third party converter to convert C500 MXF. to FCP 6 on Mac OS X.

As we know, MXF format is not a common video format like AVI, MKV, MP4, and it is not supported by FCP 6 on Mac. Below is a guide for you to convert C500 MXF to FCP 6 with Apple ProRes 422 codec, then you can log and transfer C500 MXF in FCP 6 for editing smoothly.



*********************************

Bellow are the simple steps:

Step 2. Select "Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)" as target format for Final Cut Pro (X) under "Final Cut Pro" option. it's the best format for editing Canon C500 MXF in Final Cut Pro 6.

Note: If you want output the compatible ProRes MOV file with all the audio tracks retained, Pavtube iMixMXF is the best multi-track software.

Step 3. Adjust video and audio parameters. (Optional)

Click "Settings" button to customize the output video and audio settings by yourself. But if you are not good at it, you'd better use the default parameters, they will ensure you a good balance between file size and image quality basically. You can change the resolution, bitrate, frame rate as you need.

Step 4. When above steps finished, you can click "Convert" button to start converting Canon C500 .MXF shootings to ProRes 422 for FCP 6 editing. Once the MXF transcoding finished, click "Open" button to get the generated ProRes files.

After conversion, launch Final Cut Pro 6, choose File > Import > Files…, and browse to where you saved the converted MXF clips with multiple audio tracks to. Choose the files that you'd like to add.

Now you are free to log and transfer Canon C500 MXF to Final Cut Pro 6 for smoothly editing.

Import WMV to FCP X with the Best Quality

Overview: WMV is a Microsoft Media Video features high definition quality. As a Mac user, you may often feel a headache to deal with WMV format, including importing WMV to FCP X for further editing with the best quality.

**************************

The .wmv (Windows Media Video) is the main format used in all videos processed and saved using the Windows system and its video tools such as Windows Movie Maker. It exists in every computer running a Windows operating system and stands today as one of the most used video formats. While the .wmv format is perfect for Windows Movie Maker, it's just inevitable to attempt using .wmv formats in other video editing software such as Final Cut Pro. Since .wmv videos are native to Windows, some Mac users may encounter problems when trying to import WMV to FCP X for editing with the best quality.

Some questions are found in the WMV to FCP X forum:

"I'm a newbie using FCP and have a .wmv file that I would like to add chapters to and want to know the best way to do it. I'm assuming I'd have to convert the .wmv file to a .mov or .avi file in order to work with it in FCP but I'm not sure what the best way is to convert the file in a format that'll work. I am not sure if compressor can help with that?"

"I have tried a couple of different conversion programs to convert a .wmv file to .mov or .mp4, and all seem to result in a viewable mp4, but when I import into FCP and try to put the footage into my sequence, it won't render. The sound renders, but the video remains 'unrendered'. Does anyone know why this is happening and how can I import WMV to FCP X?"

To do this, a Mac WMV to FCP X video converter is needed. Here Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac is highly recommended to convert WMV to FCP X friendly video format on Mac. Moreover, some video editing features such as trimming, cropping, rotating, merging, adding watermarks, etc. are provided to take your videos to the next level.

With C300 Mark II you can record high quality videos, it delivers the highest image quality with its XF Codec–the same codec used by other Canon XF professional camcorders.

Though Canon C300 Mark II camcorder can help you to record high quality 4K MXF footages, but usually it can make video editing a real nightmare. "I’ve got a ton of Canon C300 Mark II footage that I’m trying to import the C300 Mark II 4K MXF files to Premiere Pro CS4 for further editing. Since the files come out natively as MXF, Premiere Pro CS4 couldn’t recognize these files at all, let alone do the polishing work. What should I do?"

If you are currently using an older version of the Adobe (for instance prior to Adobe version CS5), maybe an upgrade of the Adobe version could help. Still stuck with unsuccessful attempts? Perhaps there is some required codec missing or it is an incompatible video file format. Actually, it’s not so hard to do the trick. Why we always have trouble editing because Premiere Pro still cannot accept all codecs contained in an MXF file to go natively. From Adobe Premiere Pro supported file formats list, we can find Premiere supports MPEG-2. So here comes to the key problem.

Now, the problem seems easier to be solved–a professional and powerful tool is the solution. Here we recommend Pavtube iMixMXF, applying which you are capable of converting C300 Mark II 4K MXF to MPEG-2 MPG format, the compatible video format with Premiere, with lossless quality at faster speed so that you can edit the footages in Premiere Pro CS6/5/4/3 without any problem.
