If you shoot or edit AVCHD or HDV footage, you know that the resulting files are poorly supported in QuickTime and most third party video applications. Your video is locked in arcane folders full of unplayable media files.

• Easily rewrap HDV (m2t) and AVCHD (mts, m2ts) files into QuickTime movies
• Faster than transcoding
• No generation loss
• Support for all the popular editing formats (ProRes, DNxHD, etc) and non-linear editors (Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple iMovie)
• Works with bare mts files - no BDMV folder structure needed
• Preserves metadata like GPS tags and exposure information

Simple, elegant, and fast, ClipWrap eliminates the headaches normally associated with working with AVCHD and HDV media. It converts your unwatchable AVCHD (.mts or .m2ts) and HDV (.m2t) files into fully functioning QuickTime movies so you can use them in all your favorite apps, and even preview them right in the Finder.

Rewrap or Transcode
By working with camera manufacturers to seamlessly parse metadata, ClipWrap is able to quickly convert MTS and M2T files into playable QuickTime files, without generation loss or transcoding. Easily distribute dailies or bring files into existing QuickTime workflows. In addition, ClipWrap boasts support for transcoding to all of the popular post production formats, including Apple ProRes, Avid DNxHD, and DVCProHD.

Seamless Shots
Most file-based cameras are limited to 2 or 4 gigabyte file sizes. When recordings go beyond those limits, new files are created. Other conversion utilities can lose up to 15 frames of video when processing these splits. ClipWrap is different. By reconstructing the long-GOP format before conversion, ClipWrap ensures that you never lose a frame.

ClipWrap uses the codecs already installed by you or your other applications. If a codec you wish to export to is grayed out in the format drop down, please make sure you have it installed or contact support for assistance.

Works with Sony Cybershot DSC-HX100V - Alas, a $19 "help" fee from Apple confirmed that the newest iMovie '11 update de-compatablized (is that a word?) my DSC camera. It no longer could import my AVCHD movie files onto my Mac. IPhoto doesn't recognise AVCHD format either. Felt hopeless, with movies on the camera that Mac couldn't upload. Did some searching and found this ClipWrap software that CAN upload/convert my AVCHD movie files to my Macbook Pro. Then the file can be imported into iMovie to edit, etc. Out $59 (no) thanks to the Apple iMovie '11 upgrade. But, at least there is this software program to fall back upon. Sad, though, that I have to buy a program this expensive just to upload a movie file to my Mac that was formerly free.
