Overview

MeOnMac iHDClip is a useful tool for AVCHD camcorder and Mac users to convert AVCHD MTS/M2TS/M2T videos and MOD/TOD/MOV/MP4 videos to QuickTime Movie for better playing and editing on Mac OSX or for playback on iPad, iPhone, iPod, AppleTV and more.

These are all third-party codecs installed together with your QuickTime Player, iMovie, Final Cut Pro (FCP), Final Cut Express (FCE), FCS, Avid, etc. You needn’t install them deliberately.

Tips:
1) For Compression Types with fixed aspect ratios, the change of aspect ratio may not effect on the output video. For example, if you select DV/DVCPRO-NTSC in Compression Type box, and you changed the Aspect Ratio from 4:3 to 16:9, the output file will still be 4:3, because NTSC has its fixed Aspect Ratio.
2) All codecs are perfectly supported playing in QuickTime Player.
3) What codecs can be imported without rendering?
a. If you are editing with FCE,  Apple Intermediate Codec is recommended.
b. If you are editing with FCP 6 or later, Apple ProRes is recommended.
c. If you are editing with Avid, Avid DNxHD Codec is recommended.

More about Apple ProRes:
1) If you want to convert to Apple ProRes 422 and Apple ProRes 422 (HQ), FCP 6 or higher version should be installed on your Mac. And as for Apple Pro Res 422 (LT), Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy) and Apple ProRes 4444, you need FCP 7 or later to be installed. Please find more information here.
2) iHDClip should be installed after FCP.
