How do I import 1080-60p AVCHD clips into Edius?
“Hi, there, I got some really awful 1080-60p AVCHD footage that I did manage to import into Edius. Unfortunately, I was totally missing the AVCHD folder structure during the copying process with only a bundle of .MTS clips maintained. I can open these MTS video files in VLC player, but can’t let Edius recognize them. Is there a way to go through this? Please suggest a solution. Thanks a lot.”
There are a number of people who don’t know how to work with AVCHD footage in Edius. Some of them try to dig into the AVCHD folder structure and import the .mts/.m2ts streams into Edius and don’t realize these editors are not designed to work with the footage like that. It’s one of the most common problems that people have here even, but once it’s explained to not try to import the individual files, they are usually good to go. For those who have deleted the AVCHD folder structure only with separate .mts/.m2ts streams preserved, you will need to convert them first. This requires third party converters. HD Video Converter will do the trick. Read on to find a step-by-step guide explaining how to convert separated AVCHD mts clips to WMV and DNxHD .mov for use in Edius smoothly via using this little app.
