Summary: In this post, you can learn the easy way to convert 3D AVCHD MTS files to Adobe Premiere Pro editable formats with a top 3D AVCHD converter Mac.


Have you been one of the 3D camcorder owners like Sony HDR-TD10, Sony DSC-WX30, Sony HDR-TD20, JVC Everio GS-TD1, Panasonic HDC-Z10000, Panasonic AG-3DA1? Nowadays, more and more people would like to get a 3D camcorder to record and share 3D images. The point here, you will find it’s a painful experience to import and edit 3D MTS with Adobe Premiere Pro software. Look at the typical issue:

Q: Support for 3D .MTS AVCHD files to Premiere Pro

I've been trying to import 3D footage from Sony's new HDR-TD10 3D camcorder, but Premiere only shows the left-eye image. The camera uses AVCHD with MVC (Multi View Coding) to store two 1080i images in one file. MVC is backwards compatible with regular AVCHD, so I guess that's why Premiere only recognizes the left-eye image. My question is whether anyone knows a workaround to get access to both images?

As you see, it seems Adobe Premiere Pro(including the recent Premier Pro CS6) does not like the 3D MTS video. In order to make the recorded 3D AVCHD playable or editable in Adobe, you’d better convert 3D MTS first. Here I share a simple guide on how to convert 3D AVCHD files for Adobe Premier Pro editing smoothly. If you’re facing the issues, read on to find the answer.
