Hope it helps. Regards. Enrique. [/quote] Thanks! I'll take a look. So far, I found a software called RewrapAVCHD, it rewraps the MTS file into m4v and so does the Handbrake, but I think that the Handbrake actually converts it. The difference is that with the Handbrake you have control over it, with the RewrapAVCHD you have no control over it, you can't choose codec, quality, etc. Is there a difference between conforming the video and importing it as a 60p and making a slo-mo? Let's say I conform it from 60p to 24p and I import as a 60p and slow it down 2,5x to make it 24p - as the rest of the project is 24p. Is there any difference in quality or more like a workflow preference? Thanks! [/quote] Re-wrapping with a tool like that is probably your best bet rather than do an extra stage of recompression. I use clipwrap which by the sounds of things does the same thing but does add options for converting to ProRes etc. however I find cinema tools can't conform the ProRes output of clipwrap for some strange reason - so for 60p slowed down to 24p I would go rewrap, then through compressor to ProRes and then use cinema tools to conform to 24p. Rewrapping and conforming should take seconds, converting to ProRes will take longer. Conforming using cinema tools basically changes the frame rate without changing the number of frames so your NLE will see the clip as a 24p clip rather than a 60p clip. For example if you have 1 second of footage (60 frames) at 24p you still have 60 frames but it plays them over 2.5 seconds rather than 1 second. If you adjust it in FCP it simply drops frames.
