Joining M2Ts Scenes And Conversion To Another Usable High Quality Format.


Grateful

Question

I am struggling . I have a Sony HDR-SR12 and have many video files . I have also have a Home theatre and using Netgear Home media player that extracts all media off my computers and plays it in the home theatre. My Sony videos are in many m2ts files . I want to be able to merge or connect many of the m2ts files into an appropriate single video. I do not want to have 200 scenes for a birthday party b/c with the new technology of harddrives every time you start and stop recording it creates a a scene .

How do i merge these many scenes into a "one scene" ?

 

Also , I copy all my files onto external hardrives for backup. My old 8mm Sony tapes are now in a MPEG-2 on these harddrives. Performed with my Roxio 2010 Creator . Very happy.

 

How can I do the same with this new technology of High Definition Video. I do not want to backup to DVD or Blue Ray. I have over 300GB recording from my Sony now in High Def , and am not sure if I to convert to MPEG-2 whic is standard def. And on Computer it is ok b/c can use PMB but if have on External 2TB HD , what format or how can I copy onto this so that I can play to an external media like Plasma etc or using Netgear media Player . ie not as raw as m2ts files, more of a complete ready to go movie as if you would on a DVD or Blue Ray disc . Can we not have the External HD 2TB perform like a DVD or Blue Ray ?

 

PMB from Sony allows me to convert these to MPEG-2 and Mpeg-4? But is that not defeating the pupose of buying these high end cameras to only bring it back to standard definition?

Should I use my Roxio Creator 2010 to convert these to The "best quality MPEG-2" or "MPEG4"? Is the Sony conversion to MPEG 2 High Quality same as Roxio " Best quality for MPEG-2?".

I am a Novice so excuse me if these quesyions are basic and not High Tech .

Of course the digital recording creates separate files, it is the greatest thing since sliced bread! Those are properly called “Scenes”…

 

But your usage, the Netgear, is a little unusual. (first I have ever heard of it :huh: )

 

So you want to convert them into one big file (Movie), not a problem…

 

Use VideoWave and add all of the individual clips.

 

Then Export As using something that will play on your system… Try mpeg HD so you can retain the quality but there are many, many others.

 

Might want to bounce it off of Netgear to see what they recommend.

Just to clarify (sorry Jim). From your original post, you said that mpg2- standard definition would not be desired. That is true and:

 

1) mpg2 files can be either standard definition or high definition.

 

2) mpg4 are high definition.

 

3) AVCHD files (mpg4 part 15) are high definition.

 

As Jim says, mpg2 - high definition would probably be the best for your use as long as your Netgear handles it. It is less likely that the AVCHD format would be the one to use since it is newer.

 

After you have added the scenes that you want in the order you want, just select output (top menu) in Video Wave, then export, select HD and you will have many options. If you select one, the description will show below. The image shows only about half of the available HD options. You will have to determine what frame rate, interweaved or progressive and what resolution (1080 or 720) is best for you.

 

Also a note. I tried to use m2ts (Panasonic) in Video Wave from Creator 2010 and it had to do a convert before it could add them to the project and then I still had some sound issues. I used those same files in Video Wave from Creator 2011 and had no problems adding them. There were no audio issues. Try using Creator 2010 but if you have issues, you may want to consider upgrading.
