To successfully get Canon Vixia HF R400 MTS files to iMovie for further editing, what should we do? The best solution is to transcode Canon AVCHD to a iMovie most compatible format.

The Canon camera is a HF R400. My granddaughters birthday is this Saturday. I want to take pictures in HD and then edit my MTS video which is from my Canon HF R400 with iMovie. When I shot and tried to import, iMovie doesn't recognize the file. Is there a way to transcode Canon HF R400 MTS to iMovie?

MTS progressive is a very popular format for us. It is not a standard format for many non-linear editors including iMovie. If you want to get Canon HF R400 mts files compatible with iMovie, you need to convert my AVCHD files from VIXIA R400 firstly.

After searching, I find this a powerful and easy-to-use Canon MTS Converter for Mac and I will introduce it to all of you. With reliable video quality, it seemed to be the best MTS Converter for iMovie. Now I am able to convert AVCHD footage from R400 Camcorder to AIC(Apple Intermediate Codec) for smoothly iMovie editing. No need to set up it specifically, move your mouse and do a few clicks. My iMovie can successfully allow for easy and direct importing of videos from my R400 camcorder, it is very unreliable and unstable.

Free download a free version before purchase and let’e move on!

1. Keep your Canon HF R400 on and connect it to Mac, your camcorder will show as a hard drive on desktop which means your mac recognized it now.

Launch this Canon MTS to iMovie Converter.

Click top left icon “Add videos” to load individual mts files, or try the second one “Add from folder” to load the entire folder.

2. You can find many presets in “Format” drop-down list. Choose “iMovie and Final Cut Express > Apple InterMediate Codec(AIC)(*.mov)” as the output video format.

3. Click “Settings”, you can find some other settings such as Size, Bitrate, Frame Rate and son on. The video quality is corresponding to bitrate, the higher bitrate you choose the better video quality you will get. You can check the file size easily here.

4. Start converting Canon Vixia R400 AVCHD to AIC for iMovie

Click the red convert icon at right bottom and start to convert Canon Vixia HF R400 AVCHD to AIC MOV for iMovie. You can check Shut down computer after conversion if you are doing a batch conversion and do not want to wait on the front of computer.

Wait for some time, now you get the converted videos for importing/editing in iMovie.
