As a Mac and Avid Media Composer user, I like to edit 1080p AVCHD video with Avid MC. Although We understand that Avid MC can import AVCHD – but apparently not all flavors work well. It is not easy to import Canon XA35 to Avid Media Composer for editing on Mac , and Canon XA35 AVCHD is hard to be perfectly recognized by some other video editing software like FCP, FCE, iMovie.
So we need to use a 3rd party convert to convert the Canon XA35.mts files into .mov with a DNxHD wrapper for Avid MC. Brorsoft Mac Canon AVCHD to Mac Converter is the one I choose. Fast convert AVCHD .mts from Canon XA35 to DNxHD .mov files, which will fast import into Media Composer. As for video quality, at least I cannot distinguish any loss by naked eyes. And this top AVCHD to Avid MC Converter for Mac can also help you convert AVCHD recordings to AIC, MPEG-2, MOV(AVC) for iMovie, FCE, FCP, Adobe Premiere, etc.
