Avchd To The Most Dense Output

Question

Hello,

I'm using the Roxio Creator 2009 Ultimate on a Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate O/S on a 2.8Ghz processor with 8GB of RAM. I captured hours of Video from work for a project. A lot of this involved my camera on a tripod pointing to a laptop monitor. Not very high-tech capture, but I had just a few hours to prepare this one-time-only presentation.

 

I'm trying to break several large video files (1.9GB) into Chapters. I'll put these chapters on a Jive server at work for my team to view.

 

When I import the Video file from the camera (MTS / AVCHD video with a data rate of 6877 kbps, Frame of 29fps, 1440W and 1080H) the VideoWave application wants to convert it. It converts it to an MPG. I can break up the big file into little chapters easily enough.

 

I've been experimenting with output formats. It seems that none of the ones I've tried thus far give a good output format. The original large file in MTS format renders well enough when it's uploaded to the Jive server, but I need it broken into smaller chapters, and I just can't seem to choose something with a high quality. Space is no issue on the Jive server.

 

What do you recommend?

 

Thanks

First of all C2009 is not compatible with W7. It amy seem to run for a while but will eventually fail.

 

What do you mean you want to break up the video into chapters? Are you creating a DVD? That is the only place where chapters are used in Roxio.

 

By "chapters" do you mean you want to break up the large file into smaller files?

 

You have not given any details on what program from C2009 you are using. Videowave has dozens of options for format including various HD formats.

Hi Digital Guru,

I shouldn't have used the word "Chapters". I meant that I want to break up the large file into smaller ones, yes. If I upgrade to something like Roxio Creator 2012 Pro, what will it do when it imports my MTS file. Will it convert it to an MPG file like the 2009 version or will it convert it to something that is a little more dense?

Thanks for the reply.

Hello. I upgraded to Roxio Creator 2012 Pro. It opens the MTS without converting it.

After I split up the MTS files into smaller pieces, how do I save them in the original MTS format? (MTS / AVCHD video with a data rate of 6877 kbps, Frame of 29fps, 1440W and 1080H)

Thanks for your help

??? well, if you are using VideoWave (Edit Video-Advanced) you click on Export Video and select that particular format.

 

I should ask at this point, WHY?

 

The Suite is designed to work with Projects and that 'normally precludes' any need to Export :huh:

 

But sometimes it is necessary so it is best to ask you ;)

Hi Jim,

In VideoWave (Creator 12) I click on Output / Export. The problem is that I'm having a hard time finding a format that is high quality. The big file, xxxx.MTS is of high quality. But I can't seem to choose anything that is of similar quality. Ie tried several with "Best Qualiity" but they are nowhere as good as the original MTS. Any insights / suggestions?

Many Thanks.

Phil

Whenever you are starting a new project and using HD Source, always select a 16:9 Project!

Once a Project is started, it cannot be changed :huh:

 

You can check yours by right clicking on one of the clips, and selecting Aspect Ratio Handling... It will show what the Source is and the Project:

With 16:9, the HD choices will appear ;)

Hi Jim,

That did the trick. I just hadn't considered the aspect ratio. When I went to Output / Export As, I received the Make Movie pop-up with a lot more choices. But the Video File Quality drop down still did not have the choice "Same As Original" like you did in your screen shot. It defaulted to the choice "Blu-ray AVC LP (NTSC)". That seemed to be the same quality as the MTS original. At least to the naked eye it's the same. So thanks for all your help. Now it's a point of curiosity. Why wouldn't I receive the "Same As Original" choice? Is it that VideoWave can't export to MTS? Am I missing a codec and VideoWave chose the next best thing? Just makes me wonder if I'm missing out on something.

Again, thanks for your help. I really appreciate it.

Look closely at the red arrows in post #8, set yours the same started with the 16.9 project.

Yup! Double-checked it, looking very closely at the screen shots. It's exactly as you have it, except I do not have "Same As Original" as an option. FWIW my camera is Canon HF200. I downloaded the latest update of ZoomBrowser from the web. I have the same result. I just don't see the "Same As Original" option.

That's what I'm seeing. That's why I'm wondering if you can tell me if it's Codec related or or MTS related or something like that.

He's not the only one - mine too

 

You will have to supply a lot more information other than "me too" to a year old thread.

 

It would be best to start your own topic in the correct forum and exactly state your problem.

Has to a 16.9 project and the file added to the project has to be 16.9 to show 'same as original'. A 4.3 file added to a 16.9 project won't show same as original.

Just tried it myself. New 16:9 project. Add an HD .MTS file from my Canon camera, select Output -> All, and no option for "Same as original".

:lol::D:lol: then there has to be more to it...

 

I just checked and it worked as expected.

 

I also did some screen caps recently for the VideoWave used in the Roxio GameCapture HD, which demonstrate what has to be met for it to work:

 

 

It Must be a 16:9 Project AND the FIRST clip must be HD

A 'non-HD' clip(s) can be added AFTER the first clip without any change:

post-39730-0-08187200-1376045882_thumb.jpg

 

 

But if a Blank Panel is first OR a 'non-HD' clip first, it will not allow Same As Original:
