Do you have some Full-HD AVCHD recordings of 2012 London Olympic Games from Panasonic HDC-SD90EB-W-2012? If so, you must want to edit them to get better playback effect for sharing with family and friends. You should know that AVCHD is not a good format for playing and editing on Mac OS X. It means you have to convert the SD90EB-W-2012 AVCHD .mts/.m2t/.m2ts video firstly.

Situation 1: Copy and trasncode Panasonic HDC-SD90EB-W-2012 AVCHD for playback on Mac.

As we know, on Mac OS, the default media players from Apple QuickTime will not play AVCHD natively. So, if you wanna transfer Panasonic SD90EB-W-2012 AVCHD to Mac for playback with QuickTime, you need to convert the AVCHD files to the compatible format MOV first.

Situation 2: Make Panasonic HDC-SD90EB-W-2012 AVCHD editble for Mac Video Editors.

FCP, FCE, iMovie are the common Mac tools for editing work. While, frustratingly, these non-linear video edit programs usually cannot support AVCHD files well, because both the container and codec of AVCHD are too difficult to handle. In this case, transcoding SD90EB-W-2012 AVCHD to FCP/FCE/iMovie editable formats is the only choice.
