Lossless Change/Merge Canon C100 1080p AVCHD to Avid MC

Postby lydia622520 » Fri Feb 22, 2013 3:47 am

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 Canon C100 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.

1. Double click the selected file and you can have a preview of the imported file on the viewer.
2. Right click the imported file, you will find many functions including "Rename", "Split" and so on.
3. Deinterlace 1080i files: Click Edit and select "deinterlacing" in the Effect.
4. 3D conversion. The Red-Blue/Red-Green 3D conversions are supported.
Step 1: Launch the recommended Mac AVCHD MTS Converter program and then click the adding button to import your MTS/M2TS files to it.

Step 2: Click Format on the main interface and choose Avid Media Composer > Avid DNxHD(*.mov) as output format.

Step 3: Tap the Settings icon, and you can adjust codec, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channel in the Profile Setting to get the output in best quality.
1. For 1080 50i AVCHD files, you can set the video size as 1920*1080, and set the video frame rate as 25fps.
2. For 1080 60i AVCHD videos, set the video size as 1920*1080; while, set the video frame rate as 30fps.

Step 4: All the settings have been done; you can start the changing Canon C100 AVCHD to Avid DNxHD for Avid Media Composer by clicking the “Convert” button. Then you can get the converted DNxHD (*.mov) files for editing in Avid MC by clicking the “Open” button.
