AVCHD DaVinci Resolve Editing Issues

Actually, AVCHD (.mts) is natively supported by DaVinci Resolve, according to the DaVinci Resolve supported format list. But you sometimes cannot import .mts files to DaVinci Resolve due to some reasons, like the DaVinci Resolve version, the computer hardware, damaged MTS video files, the MTS codec, the MTS frame rate, etc. It is hard to figure out the exact reason, and transcoding AVCHD files can be workable in most situations, especially for unsupported codecs, high bitrates, high frame rates, and low-end computers.

MTS videos are generally compressed by H.264 codec, which is not ideal for video editing. So you can convert MTS to ProRes or a more popular format like H.264 MP4, MOV.
