Sony HDR-CX290/B High Definition Handycam Camcorder with 2.7-Inch LCD:
With a 27x optical zoom lens, Optical SteadyShot, a 2.7-inch LCD, 1080/60p recording, a multi terminal, and 8GB of built-in storage.

This Handycam is equipped with 2.7” Wide-screen Clear Photo LCD Display (230k) to let you have clear and sharp images to make it easier when you’re recording videos, even when you’re in out-door. You can also directly edit your movies from this camcorder. No need video editing software in your computer to do it. Simply add your favorite music or add transition to your videos and share it with your friends.

I like to edit video clips on my PC with iMovie editing software, but iMovie can recognize and import the 60i footage, but can not accept the 60p files directly from Sony HDR-CX290/B. So my question is : How to import Sony HDR-CX290/B 1080 60p AVCHD footage to iMovie?

Actually, transcoding 60p AVCHD mts video clips from Sony HDR-CX290/B to iMovie is not that difficult, you just need to get a top MTS Converter for iMovie from Brorsoft to help you to convert AVCHD to the most compatible video format (AIC MOV) with Mac and iMovie.

Follow the step-by-step guide listed below , then you're able to make your 60p AVCHD to iMovie importing problem solved.


Step 1, get the top AVCHD to MOV converter and launch it to load your MTS/M2TS files from Sony HDR-CX290/B.

Step 2, choose iMovie and Final Cut Express --> Apple InterMediate Codec (*.mov) as output format on the dropdown menu which you can get by clicking the Format bar.

Step 3, adjust video and audio parameters on the Profile Setting as you need. We recommend 1920*1080 as video size, 30fps as video frame rate to get the best video quality.

Step 4, click the convert button and start transcoding Sony CX290/B 1080/60p recording for iMovie on Mac OS X Mountain Lion immediately.
