How to import AVCHD/MTS/MKV/AVI/MXF to Apple Aperture 3 on Mac

Apple Aperture 3 works with a wide variety of video formats, but not all QuickTime-compatible video formats are supported. Certain compression options, codecs, and frame rates are not supported. Aperture 3.3 or later includes support for AVCHD video from various cameras, and MTS clips formatted in 1080p30, 1080p25, 1080p24, 1080i60, 1080i50, 720p60, 720p50, 720p30, 720p25, 720p24 are all supported, while MTS clips formatted at 1080p50 and 1080p60 are not supported, and are not visible in the Aperture Import window. Also, AVCHD clips may not import if the folder structure written by the camera to the card is altered, so avoid manually moving files away from the locations to which the camera wrote them originally. Leave the folder structure on the card as the camera wrote it. What to do if you have some video sources on hand (e.g loose MTS, MXF, AVI and MKV clips) but Aperture 3 refuses to import them? The recommended solution should be converting these incompatible videos to a format that Aperture 3 handles well (Learn more about Video and Audio formats in Aperture 3).
