Re: Convert .mts to use in Pinnacle Studio 16 Ultimate

Although, it claims that Pinnacle Studio can support AVCHD files, there are so many limits you are facing like the System Requirements: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.66 gHz or higher required for 1920x1080 AVCHD editing, 2GB system memory required for AVCHD and more. If you can’t meet these requirements, you will get troubles when importing .mts/.m2ts files to Pinnacle Studio for editing. To get Pinnacle Studio working with AVCHD footage beautifully, the best solution is to transcode MTS/M2TS to Pinnacle Studio favorable formats like AVI, WMV, etc. Apart from for easy editing, video in these formats comes out in a much smaller size.

Below that, a screenshot presents the recommended tool as well as the step-by-step conversion process for you.

Step-by-step guide for converting MTS to AVI for Pinnacle Studio.

Step 1: Download, install and run the MTS to Pinnacle Studio Converter, click "Add Videos" icon to load your source AVCHD videos.

Step 2: Click “Format” bar to determine output format. Here we choose "HD Video" -> "AVI HD Video (*.avi)" as output, which seems to be the best one due to the great video quality but small size. Of course, MPG, MP4, WMV are also the proper formats for Pinnacle.

Step 3: Click "Settings" button if you’d like to customize advanced audio and video parameters like Video Codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, Audio codec, sample rate, audio channels. Notice that you can not “convert up” video quality. If you selected HD Video in Step 2, we advise you to adjust the A/V parameters to be the same with source MTS footage so as to bear least quality loss at proper file size.

Step 4: Click the convert button under the preview window, the MTS converter will start converting MTS for importing to Pinnacle Studio. Soon after the conversion is finished, just click “Open” button to get the generated files for edit in Pinnacle Studio perfectly.
