Transcode Sony NEX-5T mts to AIC for iMovie/FCE editing smoothly

Summary: This article teaches you how to easily convert and import Sony Alpha NEX-5T MTS footage into iMovie or Final Cut Express for further editing on Mac (OS X 10.9 Mavericks included).

Sony brought its NEX mirrorless camera series into the hybrid autofocus age, with the debut of the NEX-5R. Just ten months later, that camera gets a more modest refresh, with the arrival of the Sony NEX-5T.



Sony Alpha NEX-5T can record Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixel; 1080p/1080i) movies at a rate of either 60 frames per second, 24 frames per second, or 60 interlaced fields per second. (In some markets, the 60p/60i rates are replaced with 50p/50i rates, and the 24p rate with 25p.) You can also opt for lower-res 1440 x 1080 and 640 x 480 movies, with a fixed rate of 30p (25p on overseas models).

At the maximum resolution, movies are saved using AVCHD version 2.0 (MPEG-4 AVC / H.264) compression with AC-3 stereo Dolby Digital audio. At lower resolutions, movies are saved with MP4 compression and MPEG-4 AAC-LC stereo audio. Most users would like to make some editing with MTS footage from Sony Alpha NEX-5T, but problems came up as AVCHD is not a friendly format for editing in iMovie and FCE.

To solve the problem, you'd better transcode Sony NEX-5T AVCHD mts footages to AIC MOV for iMovie and FCE first. And here you need some third-party program to help. Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac
pavtube.com/mts-converter-mac/
is an ideal choice for me. It works very well in the past months and also you can choose to output the video as 1080p or other size. It can convert Sony NEX-5T AVCHD MTS video to AIC codec .mov format, and then you can edit Sony Alpha NEX-5T MTS files natively in iMovie and FCE on Mac (OS X 10.9 Mavericks included).
