Here is a question from our customer:
Now I want do with my .mts files from my Sony Handycam HDR-XR15. First in the Studio 17 editing software & then burned to a DVD to watch on regular TV, or transferred to a Nokia 2520 tablet.
I import some mts fils also without any problems, and I have nice little thumbnails of my .mts files in pinnacle, but I cannot do anything at all with them… when I right click on them and chose “play” absolutely nothing happens, also if I drag the clips to the timeline just before I release it, I can see the yellow bars that indicates how much space it will occupie on the timeline. BUT when I release it, nothing happens not a single error! NADA!
Other standard mpeg files works just fine in pinnacle where i can edit and play them without any problems… If someone here could help me i would be wherry grateful. i am starting to pull my hair out here…
As we know, Pinnacle Studio is a powerful editing tool for videographers. However, it will drive you into trouble when viewing .MTS files in Studio 17. This could happen because of the different codec in a number of MTS files as Pinnacle Studio(even the latest Pinnacle Studio 17) might not support all of these codecs. To get your Studio display Sony HDR-XR15 mts files, you have to change MTS format into Pinnacle friendly MPG format.
Searching for video file converters online, I find an easy to use tool to do the job. Now get Pavtube Video Converter to transcode Sony HDR-XR15 mts files to MPG with least quality loss, which will save you both time and trouble, and all you need is to drag the result videos for prompt editing. For this purpose, this article will show you how to convert Sony HDR-XR15 mts to MPEG-2 in detail.
How to Convert Sony HDR-XR15 mts for Editing in Pinnacle Studio 17 smoothly
Step 1: Download, install and run Pavtube Video Converter, and then click the ‘Add video’ or ‘Add from folder’ button to load the .mts videos from Sony HDR-XR15 mts.
Step 2: Click “Format” bar and choose “Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas > MPEG-2 (*.mpg)” as output format on the drop-down menu. Of course, you can also choose AVI, MP4, WMV from “Common Video” as the output format.
Tip: Click the Settings icon to adjust video and audio parameters on the Profile Setting as you need to get the best quality video.
Step 3: Simply click the “Convert” button to start converting and everything else will be automated. If you have added quite a bunch of video files, it would take some time to convert. In such case, you can click Option and tick the box “Shut down the computer after conversion”.
You’re done. Now your mts files from Sony Handycam HDR-XR150 will be converted into MPG files ready to be imported to Pinnacle Studio 17 beautifully. Then you can easily get them burned to a DVD, to watch on regular TV, or transferred to a Nokia 2520 tablet.
