The AVCHD format was updated to AVCHD Version 2.0 in 2011, to support additional specifications. AVCHD 2.0 now supports high-definition 3D movies (MVC format) and 1080/60p, 50p video. (The 60p video is for NTSC products only and the 50p video is for PAL products only.) For instance, Panasonic HC-X920 3MOS Ultrafine Full HD Camcorder features recording three 1/2.3″ BSI MOS sensors for recording Full HD 1080/60p AVCHD 2.0 video. The top quality mode offers 1080p Full HD at 50 frames per second, with a data rate of 28Mbits/sec. However, it is not easy to convert panasonic HC-X920 60P AVCHD 2.0 to iMovie 13.

1080 60p Recording is a different characteristic that tends to let these photographers make a decision to purchase one in hand in that the quality of this type of recordings’ image is additional saturated and vivid. Though the video quality is really effectively identified, The 1080 60P AVCHD 2.0 has not been adopted as an acceptable format by iMovie, FCP, QuickTime, etc. In general, iMovie 11 and earlier will transcode AVCHD into AIC, greatly increasing file size, reducing video quality and wasting a lot of time in the process. The new iMovie 13 can handle native AVCHD without transcoding, but the AVCHD clip play back from the timeline though may very choppy. You must have a fast GPU in order to effectively edit 1080 60P or it will be annoying. So here introduces Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac, which can easily bring HC-X920 60P AVCHD 2.0 to iMovie 11/13.
