For those with a Canon HD video camera – mts to mov

[UPDATE]
Less Respect – it doesn’t seem to work on Lion. I was hoping to avoid the overhead for Final Cut Pro for right now but looks like I need to bite the bullet.
[/UPDATE]

Say one day you are making videos at work, using the Canon Vixia HF S30, and you want to get the videos off the camera. Well it turns out that Canon stores them in the .mts format – which of course is not readable in a whole bunch of other programs (though 20 minutes of reading up on Final Cut Pro left me unsure).

Anyway – this post does a great job of walking through getting the MTS files to MOV files using FOSS software – booyah cashah, mooch respect.
