Aunsoft Studio today announced the first professional AVCHD Management Software, named Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac. It offers lossless HD videos in native format for storage, and also provides Apple ProRes/AIC for high quality video editing on Mac.
The native support of AVCHD clips in Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac indicates that there is no transcoding for editing clips. When AVCHD camcorders are connected to iMac/MacBook, the Apple applications like iMovie, FCE, FCP would capture videos from camcorder, but the videos would be transcoded into Apple Intermediate codec (AIC) or Apple ProRes 422. The videos imported to Final Mate for Mac could be kept as original format retaining the raw quality with frame accuracy for splitting/cutting on timeline.
“Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac helps users to manage AVCHD in the easiest way. Users can get rid of useless clips, join the clips into a single file according to different occasions or events in native format. The lossless HD video could be uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook for sharing, or could be stored/played on HD players like Popcorn Hour, Xtreamer Pro.” said Joe, the product manager of Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac.
The lossless HD videos will be ready for collections on Mac within seconds. The super fast speed lie on the processing without recompression or transcoding. It saves users a lot of time from waiting for conversion, and makes it easy to organize AVCHD collections on Mac.
Besides the lossless HD video output in Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac, users who would like to edit 1080/60p AVCHD videos in iMovie, FCE, FCP could make the 1080/60p videos compatibles on Mac by converting to best quality Apple ProRes or AIC.
