MTS and M2TS are file extensions for the same AVCHD and both support 720p and 1080i HD video formats.
iMovie is a proprietary video editing software application which allows Mac users to edit their own home movies. Users can edit the video clips, add titles, and add music. Effects include basic color correction and video enhancement tools, and transitions.
AVCHD.MTS files always can not be natively supported by various software or device. iMovie'09 says can accept MTS clips, but only when they are running on an Intel-chip based Mac. A PPC Mac won't work.
