Correct way to import Canon XA10 into Avid/Premiere Pro

Summary: Having issues when importing and editing Canon XA10 AVCHD mts files in Avid Media Composer or Premiere Pro? Get the best Canon XA10 video converter here.

Canon XA10 AVCHD camcorders with its high quality, is popular among the videographers; however, the output videos in AVCHD(a highly compressed format) are rather difficult to handle. And the video editing software for Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer can't support Canon XA10 MTS videos on Mac OS X perfectly.

Q1: Canon X10 into Adobe Premiere Pro I am a newbie of Canon XA10. The format shows AVCHD Video (.MTS) - into Adobe Premiere. I have CS5, running on Windows 7, 32bit. I got know Adobe Premiere CS5 and later work with AVCHD video, but require a 64 bit computer. So, I have to convert the files. When I convert .MTS to another format do I lose lots of quality? That is my only worry.

Q2: Work with Canon X10 video in Avid Media Composer The footages I edit are always coming from a Canon XA10 HD Camera. My timeline always end with 1, 2 hours of duration. And i also make a lot of After Effects transitions with Alpha to use on Premiere for de edit, but with the new machine i want to start using Avid Media Composer 6 and stop using Adobe Premiere CS6 (on windows i get a lot of problems... Like the program shutting down all by himself and etc...)

You may got know that the latest version of these Mac applications Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid MC, Final Cut Pro tends to support AVCHD videos, but we have to accept the truth that AVCHD, a highly compressed format is not ideal for editing. More than one problem has been occurred during the importing & editing process like the slow rendering, program crashed, can't recognize the camera...

In order to import and edit Canon XA10 MTS files in Avid/Premiere without crashing problem and avoid rendering, you'd better transfer the Canon XA10 AVCHD footages to Avid or Adobe native format. Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac can help you achieve the goal smoothly.
