Adding Several Avchd (.mts) Files To A Videowave Production


Jan Mølgaard
 Share

Question

I have a Canon Legria HF 200 Camcorder. After a holiday I typically have more than 400 .mts files I would like to edit into one production using VideoWave. It allows me to do so, BUT I have to accept conversion to mpeg (answering, waiting, answering) each and every file before I can edit it.

There must be a smarter way to do that, either editing the files directly, or accepting the conversion batch all together, or?

 

Version: Roxio Creator 2010 (Build 121B93A ENU)

PS: I have tried to search the forum for answers to the problem, but the threads I found had no answer to this problem.

Mine do not do that??? They did in 2009 but not in 2010.

 

To make sure you are up to date, behind your version number you should see SP2.1???

 

Is this in VideoWave?

 

Is the conversion Automatic, or something you are doing on the side?

 

Are these mts files shot in MXP or FXP on your camcorder?

 

Is everything set to PAL format?

 

Would you be able to shoot a couple of 5 second examples and put them on a server like UpForDown so we can try them out?

The version information was from Videwave, from Roxio Creator it says:

Version 1.2.193 SP2.1 SP2; 5.0.0.0

 

The conversion is Automatic, it starts, when I try to import them in VideoWave. By dragging from the "Recently Imported" Pane.

It shows a messagebox, Heading "Transcoding"

Content: Some or all of the files you have selected must be converted to an editable format. The original files will not be affected. Would you like to convert them now" When I answer yes I am prompted for a name for each file.

I have uploaded three files named Toscana 100001.MTS 100002.MTS and 100003.MTS

How do I see if they are shot in MXP or FXP?

 

HEY!

I just tried to use Add Photo/Video instead of dragging.

And VOILA! It accepts several MTSfiles....

:rolleyes::D

Thanks for your fast answer!

I see that some come in directly whereas others throw the Transcoding message?

 

I have had some trouble using the MXP mode as it uses 24 fps frame rate which seems to throw a lot of software for a loop even Canon's!
