Mts File Conversion Issue

Question

I was given h264/.MTS video files by a client. I'd like to edit them in Final Cut Pro, but I have to convert them first.

 

I attempted to use Toast to convert them to quicktime files. I selected custom settings in Toast to export the video files in a particular resolution and bitrate. When the files completed their conversion, they were in a completely different bitrate and resolution that was much too large for my purposes. Toast's estimate of the file size for the first video was 20 MB, and the actual file size of the export was 700 MB, more than twice the size of the 300 MB original file.

 

Is Toast ignoring my custom settings? If so, what settings is it using instead? Can I change this?

Which convert settings did you use? What is the resolution and frame rate of the source video? Did you use the New Custom Profile selection when clicking on the Devices popup or did you choose QuickTime Movie as the device and then select custom as the quality?
