Canon VIXIA HF G10 AVCHD Software for Mac-Convert/Edit HF G10 MTS to Avid/FCP/FCE/iMovie

Canon VIXIA HF G10 Flash Memory Camcorder is Canon’s high-end offering for 2011. Packed with so many mouth-watering features and functions it doesn’t seem to right to call this model a ‘consumer camcorder’. It’s almost redundant to say that a camcorder at this level shoots 1920 x 1080 high definition video, but we’ll say it anyway. The HF G10 records at 60i, in native 24p, and in the 24p Cinema mode and 30p Progressive mode (both at 60i). With the 24p frame rate options you can give your footage a truly cinematic look. Using Cinema-Looks Filters you boost that film look with 9 built-in adjustable filters. Some choices include Cinema Standard, Dramatic B&W, Nostalgic, Old Movie, and Sepia. You can also shoot video that’s optimized for the ‘net with the 30p Progressive mode.

To transfer Canon VIXIA HF G10 HD videos to Apple hard drive, you can use the Apple iMovie, Final Cut Pro. But you shall make sure that you at least have iMove 8 or iMovie 9, FCP 6 on your Mac with Intel processor. However, if you have iMovie 6 or first copy AVCHD files from camera by looking for PRIVATE -> AVCHD -> BDMV -> STREAM on SDHC/Micro SDHC card, or copy MTS file from AVCHD -> BDMV -> STREAM on built-in HDD, you may find it difficult to import to iMovie, FCP, FCE or even Avid MC 5.
