I know this has been talked about, but did not see a conclusive answer.
If possible, the video format AVCHD using MTS container would be a great addition, as this would open up the door for importing videos shot using classic cam recorders.

I am aware about Handbrake and other software to convert the format to mp4, but that is very time-consuming and it dims down the original quality.

The external cam recorders have a more natural light sensitivity and even me iPhone 7 does not really match that, but if moving to iPad for video editing, then direct import of AVCHD files would be superb.

I believe the reason AVCHD is not supported is due to iOS not directly supporting the format.

Hi Cristian and rom291

Check what options you may have on your camera as well. On my Canon HF G30 can record either AVCHD or MP4 (or both on different SD cards), it also has the ability to convert from files in AVCHD to MP4 in camera with very little quality loss (if any). I mostly only shoot in MP4 mode now.

These are the video options I have on camera, not sure if any would work, I'll run some tests.
It's a Panasonic HDC-TM900

I believe the iFrame shooting mode, which is essentially one quarter (at 960 x 540) of Full HD would be compatible, but not sure I'd want to record at that low of a quality setting.

Converting the Full HD video with a 3rd parity app is probably best option for your camera files.

Yes, on the info it says that is the mode to be easily edited on PC, but now I'm using 4k resolution on my videos, so going that low with the iFrame would not be worth it.

generally, AVCHD file is saved as .m2ts extension while the MP4 file is saved as .mp4 file extension. Well, if you want to know the differences between AVCHD and MP4, you can try these links:https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3619073
http://www.videoconverterfactory.com/ti ... s-mp4.html and some YouTube videos is clear like this one [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rks3kmC2aSU[/youtube]

Hello,

My name is Marco kreuger from Holland and i have also asked for importing
AVCHD.
There is an solution to rewrap the MTS file to MOV or mp4 on an MAC or
on a PC.
Today i saw a program for the ipad, The name is : iCONV Video & Audio converter.
This program is free but have some restrictions. When you by the program 6,99 euro then you don't
have restrictions and you can use batch conversion.
You can import the MTS file on you iPad with icloud or with the PhotoFast SD cardreader.
When you want to import somewhere without internet, the photofast SD cardreader is
the perfect solution (39,95 euro).
It is also possible to convert the files, but rewrapping is better because you don't
have loss of quality.
When rewrapped you can share the file with Luma touch.

Here you can find the program

iConv: Video & Audio Converter van Evan Hurst
https://itunes.apple.com/nl/app/iconv-v ... 34752?mt=8

Sorry for my English. I hope i have helped a lot of people with this solution.

There are also a couple of HEVC conversion apps, but they only work with file types that IOS can already read.

Will that app read file types that normally aren’t readable in IOS?
