C100 Footage to Avid DNxHD- Best Way to Ingest AVCHD mts files from Canon 100 to Avid Media Composer

To bring your Canon C100 footage into Avid Media Composer, it’s advised that you convert Canon C100 MTS footage to a native editing format for Avid on Mac OS X (Yosemite & Mavericks included).

Canon unveils the EOS C100, a 'budget' addition to its Cinema EOS range of professional video cameras. Based on the core performance of the acclaimed EOS C300, the new model combines impressive hardware specifications with a range of new automatic features - making it ideal for videographers who shoot without a crew, or EOS shooters entering the Cinema EOS System for the first time. The C100 records 1920 x 1080 Full HD movies in AVCHD format to SD cards at a bit rate of 24Mbps, offers an ISO range of 320-20000, and can output uncompressed video directly to external recorders.

However, the recorded AVCHD is not a good editing format for many Mac movies editing softwares, like Avid Media Composer. As far as I know Avid's latest version can supports the AVCHD well. "Anyway, I like the video quality. But is there any one who can tell me why I can not imput the MTS clips to Avid Media Composer? Do you have any method? Help me!" If you are planning to get the Canon C100 AVCHD to Avid MC, you will meet the same trouble with the old version.

To import AVCHD footage correctly and smoothly, a good way you will know, it is to convert AVCHD MTS to Avid MC video format on Mac OS X. To make sure the converted video quality, pls use the best AVCHD to Avid MC Converter. It not only helps you change the MTS to a comaptible format, also allows you to freely set the video and audio profile to get the SD, 72p or 1080p HD qaulity as you need. Plus, it has the built-in menus for different Video Editing Softwares, including Avid MC. Avid's native format is DNxHD, so you'd better choose it for converting to. Below is the guid on lossless AVCHD to DNxHD conversion.

Step 1. Add C100 MTS footage to the MTS to Avid MC Converter.

Once you run it, click “Add Video” button or “Add from folder” button to load your source Canon C100 MTS files. When the MTS files are loaded to the MTS to Avid Converter, you can view the videos from the Preview window. Simply select an item and click the “Play” button. When the video is playing, you are allowed to take snapshoot.

Step 2. Choose DNxHD MOV as output format for MTS to Avid MC conversion.

Brorsoft MTS to Avid Converter features two optimized format presets for Avid Media Composer, one is “Avid DNxHD 720p (*.mov)”, and the other is “Avid DNxHD 1080p (*.mov)”. Here we select 1080p for example.


If the default settings do not fit your needs, you can click “Settings” button to adjust audio and video parameters as you like.

Step 3. Convert MTS to DNxHD 1080P MOV for importing to Avid Media Composer.

Click “Convert” button and the selected MTS files will be converted to DNxHD 1080P MOV. You may check the converting progress and set auto shutdown in the conversion window. After conversion, click “Open” folder to find converted C100 footage for importing to Avid Media Composer.

Additional Tips:
If you want to edit AVCHD MTS files in Prermiere Pro or Vegas Pro, you just need to choose Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas> MPEG-2(*.mpg) as output format in the second step. If you’re using a Mac and want to use MTS files in Final Cut Pro, please choose the “Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)” as output; for iMovie and FCE, select “iMovie and Final Cut Express -> Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC) (*.mov)”.
