converting AVCHD to Final Cut Express or Adobe Premiere
MTS is a High-definition MPEG Transport Stream video format, commonly called "AVCHD"; created by Sony, Panasonic, JVC, Canon and other HD camcorders. And the MTS format bases on the MPEG-2 transport stream and supports 720p and 1080i HD video formats. If you fail to import AVCHD MTS/M2TS videos to Final Cut Express or Adobe Premiere Pro, it’s not surprising since only Final Cut Express 4 and the latter version as well as Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 supports ACVHD format (but not in the trial version). In the end, you may need to find a way to convert you AVCHD mts/m2ts file format to compatible one for your Final Cut Express or Adobe Premiere Pro if both versions of the two are not workable with mts/m2ts files.

It is the consumer version of Final Cut Pro and is designed for advanced editing digital video as well as high-definition video. But only Final Cut Express 4 and the latter version supports real-time editing in the AVCHD format (currently for Intel processors only), imports iMovie '08 projects and includes 50 new filters. - Adobe Premiere Pro is a real-time, timeline based video editing software application. Premiere Pro supports many video editing cards and plug-ins for accelerated processing, additional file format support and video/audio effects. Although the first two versions of Premiere Pro only supported Windows, Premiere Pro CS3 is available for both Windows and Mac OS (only Intel-based Macs are supported), making it one of the few cross-platform NLEs available. And now Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 supports ACVHD format but not in the trial version.
