Preserve the moment in stunning HD clarity. Featuring a massive 240GB1 internal hard disk drive, the HDR-XR550V also records 1920 x 1080 high-definition video and 12-megapixel still images. Experience superior low-light shooting performance via the "Exmor R" CMOS sensor, while Optical SteadyShot? image stabilization with Active Mode and 3-way Shake Canceling, which enables you to capture remarkably smooth video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting.

The marvelous experience with Sony HDR-XR550V has been proceeding until you want to edit the precious memories or create your own masterpieces. It’s a pity that Sony Vegas only functions with Sony HDR workflows on Windows platform. As a result, Mac users constantly edit the HD videos in iMovie, and burn into DVDs with iDVD. Though some of the Sony HDR-XR550V videos could be loaded to iMovie, videos recorded in 1080/60p for HDTV playback via HDMI are still not able to be recognized by iMovie ‘8 and iMovie ‘9. A third party software is required to transcode the original footages to iMovie compatible format.

I am glad to recommend this brilliant Sony AVCHD Converter for mac program with you: Brorsoft AVCHD Converter for Mac. It is specially developed for Panasonic/Sony/Canon/JVC AVCHD camcorder to convert 1080i/1080p/720i/720p AVCHD, AVCHD Lite, AVCCAM, NXCAM footages to iMovie, Final Cut Express, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, iDVD and more similar video editing or burning software compatible file types with least quality loss.

Below is the step by step guide about how how to convert Sony HDR-XR550V 1080/60p .mts videos to H.264 .mov for iMovie and then burn a DVD disc with iDVD.

Step1. Load Sony HDR-XR550V videos to Brorsoft HDR-XR550V Converter.
Transfer the AVCHD files from Sony HDR-XR550V’s massive 240GB hard disk drive (HDD) to Apple hard drive disk, and run Brorsoft Sony AVCHD Converter for Mac as your first choice for importing HDR-XR550V 1080/60p to iMovie. Click the "Add" button on the top tool bar to load the .mts videos or drag them directly into the program.

Step2. Select H.264 MOV as the output format.
Hit the "Format" pop-down menu, and navigate to “Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas “ section. Choose “MOV (AVC) (*.mov)” as the output format. Without specifying the settings, the program will transcode 1080/60p .mts videos to 1080/30p MOV in H.264 codec automatically. Plus, click the “Export To” button to specify the destination folder so as to find the output videos easily.

Step3. Convert Sony HDR-XR550V videos to iMovie MOV.
Click the convert button under the preview window, and the conversion will need several minutes. After that, the H.264 .mov files are ready for iMovie importing.

Step4. Import the imported MOV to iMovie.
After the conversion, create a project in iMovie and import videos for editing. You can trim video & audio clips, add captions & titles, add narration & transitions, and create scrolling credits for the end of the movie. Plus, When adding chapter markers for iDVD to create scene selection menus, choose iMovie > Preferences > General, and making sure "Show Advanced Tools" is selected.

Step5. Load iMovie videos to iDVD.
Share the movies with iDVD, and burn to a DVD. Compared to iMovie 06, iMovie '08'09 have lots of changes - without drop down option for importing iMovie Projects to iDVD. But, this function is still available.
1. Share your iMovie Project to "Media Browser", which will be saved as an iMovie Project file.
2. Open iDVD, and create a new iDVD project.

3. Find your iMovie project and directly drag and drop to iDVD project. Then you could either choose to edit your project in iDVD or directly burn it to a DVD disc

Tips: The standard specifications for DVD disc movies in NTSC mode: 720x480 for frame size and 29.97fps for frame rate. iDVD will burn a standard DVD and the image quality will be poorer comparing to the original HDR-XR550V1080p HD video.
