The Sony Handycam was the first camcorder designed specifically to fit in the palm of the user’s hand. Until its release, most video cameras had been rather bulky, shoulder-mounted contraptions that recorded directly to VHS. Sony Handycam Camcorders are great for us to record AVCHD footages when we are travelling or spending holidays. If you have recorded some vivid videos with Sony HDR-CX220, HDR-PJ230, HDR-PJ380, HDR-PJ650V, HDR-PJ790V or other Hanycams, you may have the need to edit Sony AVCHD footage in iMovie 8/9/11 before sharing with others.

However, the AVCHD footage is not easy to be edited in iMovie 8/9/11 due to its high rate compression and special codec, it takes long time to render, and you can not import Sony Handycam MTS files in iMovie smoothly. 

 

In order to make the AVCHD videos from Sony Handycam compatible with iMovie 8/9/11, the easy workaround is to convert Sony Handycam files to iMovie friendly codec. For this purpose, this article mainly shows you how to transcode Sony Handycam AVCHD mts video to edit in iMovie 8/9/11.

Thirdly, you can click "Settings" and customize output video specs depending on your own needs. 

  

The last step: click Convert to start converting Sony Handycam AVCHD MTS to AIC for iMovie 8/9/11. Wait for a few moments, click "Open" to locate the converted video.
