Edit Video

Most videos shot by camera are all AVCHD, which uses the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 standard, supporting a variety of standard, high definition, and stereoscopic video resolutions. For audio compression, it supports both Dolby AC-3 and uncompressed linear PCM audio. Audio, video, subtitle, and ancillary steams are multiplexed into an MPEG transport stream (*.MTS) and stored on media as binary files.

weddingsWith this fascinating shooting codec, more and more videos are coming in this format. But *.MTS is not a very friendly format for many edit software. And if you have some wedding videos or some party videos like to edit MTS in Pinnacle Studio, which may be a real headache for you. On the one side, you want to keep the best quality as much as it could; on the other side, you have to convert your videos in order to put you MTS weddins videos into your Pinnacle. How to free yourself from this dilemma?

Let’s make this clear, AVI technically may not call as a “format’. You can just say it’s a “container” format. Take a example, this AVI is just like our clothes, the real codec which used to compress your videos and audios are inside this “clothes”.  If you do have some AVI files which can’t load them into this editor, then before loading, you should figure out what the inner codec is. Below is the detailed workflow for you to solve this kind of problem.
