Now the conversion starts:
Step 1: Import your MTS/M2TS files to the best MTS/M2TS to MOV Converter for Mac.
Launch the MTS/M2TS to MOV Converter. Click the button for adding to import the MTS/M2TS files to the best MTS/M2TS to MOV Converter. You can tick the box in front of the file you want to convert. If it is necessary, you can double click the each file to have a preview or get the screen shots as you like by clicking the “Capture”.
Tip 1: If you have multiple MTS files, you can tick the “Merge into one” box to combine the MTS /M2TS into one single file so that you can play these files without interruption.
Tip 2: If you want to do the batch conversion, you just need to add all the MTS/M2TS files to the MTS/M2TS to MOV Converter for Mac and then follow the steps listed below.
Step2: Choose an output format for MOV and set the output folder.
Press on the “Format” and you will get a drop down menu. Move you pointer to “Final Cut Pro”, and you will find there are a few formats which are all compatible with Final Cut Pro under the sub list. Here we recommend “Apple ProRes 422(HQ) (*.mov)”, if taking the high quality as the priority. Then you can set the output folder by clicking “Browse” icon as you need.
Note: If you want the files be in smaller size, you may need to follow Final Cut Pro>Apple ProRes 422(LT) (*mov) option. If the quality of your MTS/M2TS files is at SD levels, you are advised to choose Final Cut Pro>Apple ProRes 422(Proxy) (*mov), which is recommended for 480i/p and 576i/p shootings as well.
Step 3: Click “Settings” button to adjust the audio and video parameters.
Press the “Settings” and you will go to a new interface named “Profile Settings”. You can adjust codec, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channel in the interface as you like as well as optimize the output file quality.
Note: You'd better set the video frame rate as 30fps, video size as 1920*1080 to keep the best quality for editing in Final Cut Pro. If you aim at having a smaller file size but keeping the good quality, you can change the video size to 1440*1080.
