Edit Sony HDR-XR520 MTS to MOV in iMovie on Mac Snow Leopard
Sony HDR-XR520 makes it easy to record videos without worry about the storage, as it includes large 240GB hard drive. Sony HDR-XR520V is the NTSC model to record 1080/60i videos, and the HDR-XR520VE is the PAL model for 1080/50i videos. The Sony HD camcorder records audio with Dolby Digital 5.1-channel. However, iMovie 8 does not recognize the .mts video footage.
I googled and was recommended to upgrade to iMovie 9, but not sure if it works. I kept searching alternative solution, and get Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac as the Sony video converter on Mac, which can convert Sony HDR-SR520V 1080/60i MTS to MOV for editing in iMovie. Actually the HD MOV is also compatible with Mac QuickTime Player.
