Hey guys and gals I got a Panasonic HD camcorder for chirstmas and it shoots in the AVCHD format and I am looking for a good video converter so I can edit the footage on my mac book. I downloaded some free trials and I'm not impressed with them as the video has a ton of lines in it and the quality isn't that good. What are the pros using for a conversion program?

What are you planning to edit the video with?


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

mpeg streamclip is free and does wonder for encoding to other media types. I use it all the time when using my canon 7d. The final cut pro codec it needs takes up like 2x the actual space. EX. a 4gb file gets converted to a 8gb pro res 4444 file. So instead I encode to sony xdcam 1080p which retains the hi-quality and similar original file size.


Canon 7D- 16-35IIL24-105L - 135L- 50mm 1.4 - 85mm 1.8 - 28mm 2.8

Here is a forum that is more appropriate for Panasonic Camcorder questions:
http://www.avsforum.co​m/avs-vb/forumdisplay.php?f=​161 (external link)

I have a Panasonic TM900 which shoots 1080/60p video and so do the TM90 and SD90 models. To view these 60p AVCHD videos on my Mac I convert them to Quicktime .mov files using Clipwrap: http://www.divergentme​dia.com/clipwrap/trial (external link)
There is no loss of quality. In fact the converted 1080/60p video is so stunningly sharp and detailed that I even question the need for using my cameras for anything anymore!

If you have a less expensive model than the TM900 or TM90/SD90, then those model shoot only 1080/60i (not 60p) but the Clipwrap program will work for them too, although I can't remember if the lines you are talking about will show up or not.

If I read this right, FCX has native support.

Okay I figured it out, you have to import the clip from the camera itself and not by using the SD card only.

Thanks everyone
