Alienware Aurora,6 gigs of memory, quad core precessor 3.33 ghz and using a 64 bit operating system with Windows 7 Home Premium. Nvidia GeForce GTX260 video card. This is my foray into AVCHD so if my terminology is a bit off, please excuse me! I downloaded video from a Sandisc SD card this morning. Now, one of the files contains video from a Panasonic AVCHD cam and the other the current Sony AX2000. For some reason, the files from the Panny will load and play on Vidoewave (though I can't Detect Scene because it says I need to transcode these files) but the Sony won't play at all and causes the program to crash.
The last download I did was through "My Computer", copies and pasted the files to a My Video file. I used the CNET program to convert the Sony files to
MPEG2 but they won't play in Videowave. Using "Any Video Converter", the file I choose is a "MTS" file which I instruct it to "MPEG2 Movie", correct?
When I go back to the MyVideo file, they still show up in AVCHD format. Yes, Videowave works with other files and "yes" the camcorder did come with a utility software entitled "Content Management Utility For AVCHD Camcorder" and that was downloaded too. This software doesn't make any difference in the fact that the files downloaded were "MTS" files. The options in the video converter program is "Customized AVI Movie" and "Customized WMV Movie."
Of note, when I hook up the Sony, Roxio Capture comes up but only displays the "Sony" files, not the ones taken previously with the Panasonic. Interesting.
I can see the Panasonic and Sony videos in MyVideo in My Documents.
