Edit Panasonic AF100 AVCHD/MTS video in Premiere Pro CC
Like most NLEs, Premiere Pro CC is unable to recognize an orphan mts file without the entire AVCHD folder structure. But what to do if you only have some separate MTS files on hand? In that case, you will have to transcode MTS files that Premiere Pro CC couldn’t ‘read’ to an intermediate codec that is compatible with your editing program. In this post, we are going to talk about how to convert Panasonic AF100 AVCHD MTS to H.264 MOV for working with Premiere Pro CC in detail.
Needed to transcode MTS files that Premiere Pro couldn’t ‘read’
“Hi, all. Can you please help? I’m looking for a workable converter program to convert Panasonic AF100 MTS files to Premiere Pro CC without sacrificing any quality. Several days ago, one of my clients copied a couple of MTS clips to me without preserving the complete AVCHD structure (I produce corporate, marketing and training videos for a range of clients.). Adobe Premiere Pro CC couldn’t read these loose MTS clips from AF100, so I have to transcode them before editing. I have tried several MTS programs but most hung, stopped unexpectedly, or didn’t sync. What a hair-pulling thing! Can anyone kindly recommend a reliable and helpful converter app to do so? Thanks a lot.”
