Turbo.264 HD Video Tutorial

Turbo.264 HD Video Tutorial

We love how the Elgato Turbo.264 HD works with our  Panasonic HDC-SD100 (Review Link) we produced a video how-to. This video tutorial will show you how easy it is to quickly import and convert AVCHD camcorder footage using Elgato’s Turbo.264 HD hardware accelerator and software.

The intuitive interface makes simple edits to footage very simple and even has the ability to send footage directly to YouTube and YouTube HD.


If you connect an AVCHD camcorder to your Mac an additional button appears on the main window entitled ‘Add Camcorder’. This is the point when updated software really offers a massive advantage.

Importing AVCHD footage using iMovie and Final Cut although faster than traditional firewire video importing still takes a fair bit of time. The Turbo.264 software quickly lists and indexes the AVCHD footage with a first frame thumbnail.

This tutorial is available on Vimeo and also our YouTube Channel. To read our full review of the Elgato Turbo.264 HD package click here.
