how to convert AVCHD files on a mac

  bbmf474 10:21 02 Jan 14

I have a lumix dmc-zs25 and not aware at setuo of the choices for videos AVCHD or Mp4 I have a number of AVCHD files which cannot be viewed by my mac I have extracted them into a folder and they are .mts files I found an apple forum which says iMovie can handle AVCHD files directly but needs a folder needs AVCHD at the root of the filesystem for them to be recognised - I do not know what this means!

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks Happy New Year BBMF

You are probably better off in Apple support forums but some for you to read:

Mts files into iMovies

mts files and iMovies

Import mts to iMovies
