I have MTS files that I wish to edit in iMovie and they are unrecognizable. MPEG streamclip also doesn't recognize them. Help?

To be frank, it's often the case you fail to put HD camcorder recorded MTS/M2TS clips to QuickTime, iPad or iPhone for playback or import HD MTS/M2TS videos to iTunes, iMovie or Final Cut Pro. This is because MTS and M2TS formats are only in format supported lists of camcorders but hardly found in other places. So you need to convert MTS to MOV on Mac because MOV is recognized as a perfect format running on Mac OS, QuickTime, and other Apple devices.
