Encode Sony Handycam iMovie-Transfer MTS video files from Sony Handycam to iMovie 08/09/11

May 13 2014 , Written by lauralily10 Published on #sony handycam to imovie, #convert sony handycam mts to imovie, #Encode Sony Handycam iMovie, #transcode sony handycam video tips to imvie

Summary: Looking for ways to open and edit Sony Handycam camcorder MTS in iMovie 08/09/11? This article will offer you the best solution to edit Sony Handycam footage in iMovie.

Imagine instantly projecting your vacation footage on the wall of your hotel room-just moments after shooting it. Sporting a clever built-in projector, select Sony Handycam models are like mobile movie theaters. Not only can you project up to 100" (diag.) images on any flat surface, you'll also enjoy powerful sound from built-in stereo speakers. It's the best way to share your footage on the fly.

It's all about image quality. Crystalize special occasions in stunning, incredibly detailed 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution for movies as gorgeous as the moment itself. Birthday parties, road trips, baby's first steps – everything looks better in HD. And it's easy to share the fun. Just connect the camcorder to your HDTV, and delight your friends and family with crisp, clear videos of all your adventures.


The iMovie won't import 1080 60p files from Sony Handycam Camcorders. Here we list the possible solutions for you to import Sony Handycam video to iMovie smoothly.

Solution 1: From iMovie's support page, I learnt that iMovie can import both AVCHD (high definition) and MPEG-2 (standard definition) content from Sony Handycam HDR series Sony HDR-CX11, HDRCX12, HDR-SR1 and HDR-SR7. And you can get it done with the following guidelines.

1. This issue is resolved for iMovie ’11 when you upgrade to version 9.0.1 or later.
For versions previous to iMovie ’11 v9.0.1, including iMovie ’08, ’09, and ’11 (v9.0 only):
2. To import the AVCHD content from the camera when MPEG-2 content has also been recorded, you must first import and erase the MPEG-2 content from the camera. You should then be able to import the AVCHD content.

Solution 2:

As far as I know, iMovie any version can't use 1920x1080 60p or 50p - If I've read other questions right. So to import Sony Handycam 60p or 50p footage to iMovie or you have crashing or rendering problems, the easy workaround is to convert Sony Handycam AVCHD footage to a more editing-friendly format, such a iMovie's Apple Intermediate Codec.

Download and install Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac. It is a powerful high-quality video converter, player and editor especially designed for AVCHD camcorder users. It's free, clean, safe to install and use. With it, you can effortlessly transcode Sony Handycam MTS files to Apple Intermediate Codec encoded MOV files which ensures best results when using in iMovie 08/09/11.

The Steps: Transcoding Sony Handycam MTS files to iMovie



1) Launch the best Sony Handycam to iMovie Converter, and then click the "Add" button to load the .mts videos.

2) Click the format bar or the pull down menu of "Format" to select "iMovie and Final Cut Express--> Apple Intermediate Codec(AIC)(*.mov)" and then click the "Convert" button to start the conversion.

Settings - If you like, you can click “Settings” icon and you will go into a new interface named “Profile Settings”. You can adjust codec, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channel in the interface according to your needs and optimize the output file quality.

You've done. Your Sony Handycam files will be converted into AIC .MOV files ready for importing into iMovie 08/09/11 smoothly.
