This post introduces an easy-to-use and helpful 3D AVCHD Converter to transcode 3D MTS/M2TS video files to whatever formats you request for editing, playing, sharing and burning.
Why need a 3D AVCHD Converter for Mac/Windows?
There are lots of camcorders that are able to record footage in 3D AVCHD format, such as Panasonic HC-X920MGK, Sony HDR-TD20VE, JVC GS-TD1 Full HD 3D Camcorder and more. To be able to edit these 3D AVCHD files with NLEs, play them on a HDTV or portable devices, upload them for sharing or burn a real DVD, you will need a third party 3D MTS/M2TS Converter to transcode them to a format that is best suited for your end use.
An user question regarding editing 3D AVCHD footage in Adobe Premiere
“Hi, I’ve been trying to import 3D footage from Sony’s new HDR-TD10 3D camcorder, but Premiere only shows the left-eye image. The camera uses AVCHD with MVC (Multi View Coding) to store two 1080i images in one file. MVC is backwards compatible with regular AVCHD, so I guess that’s why Premiere only recognizes the left-eye image. My question is whether anyone knows a workaround to get access to both images? Thanks!”
With HD Video Converter, you can encode 3D AVCHD footage in format of .mts or .m2ts to a wide variety of file formats fit for different uses, such as transcoding 3D AVCHD to AIC, ProRes, DNxHD for editing, converting 3D AVCHD to MPEG-2 for DVD burning, encoding 3D MTS/M2TS to MP4, MOV for playing, rewrapping 3D MTS/M2TS to FLV for sharing, etc.
Guide on how to convert 3D AVCHD files to your required file type?
Follow these steps:
Step 1: Open up HD Video Converter as the best 3D AVCHD Video Converter for Mac/PC. When its main interface comes up, click ‘Add File’ to load your source media.
Step 2: Select output format according to your request
For example, if you want to convert 3D AVCHD footage for making a DVD, you can move to Profile menu and choose ‘MPEG-2 Video (*.mpg) as output format under ‘General Video’ catalogue. And if you need to convert video files for editing in FCP X, you can then from ‘Profile’ list, select ‘Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)’ as output format under ‘Final Cut Pro’ column. The ProRes codec is also workable in its former version FCP 6 and FCP 7.
Important: If you’ve loaded a number of video clips to do batch conversion, please do remember ticking off ‘Apply to All’ option before you start.
Step 3: Custom video and audio settings (optional)
If necessary, you can click ‘Settings’ button and go to ‘Profiles Settings’ panel to modify video and audio settings like video encoder, resolution, video bit rate, frame rate, aspect ratio, audio encoder, sample rate, audio bit rate, and audio channels. 3D settings are also available.
Step 4: Begin 3D AVCHD Video Conversion
When ready, click ‘Convert’ to start format conversion. Once the conversion process is complete, you can click ‘Open Folder’ button to get the generated files for your different end uses.
If you don’t want to wait for the entire conversion process, you can tick off ‘Showdown computer when conversion completed’ and go away to do other things.
