My JVC Everio camera GZ-HM500 shoot at full HD (1920×1080) in MTS format, which are not handled very well by Adobe Premiere. I'm considering about whether I should buy a MTS converter or should I seek another way for successfully loading and playing back the AVCHD footage in Premiere, for example upgrade premiere pro maybe. Before I hustle to spend dozens of bulks on the upgrade, I tried several MTS converters from Google search and quite impressed the performance by this Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter which is also recommended in a blog. It's evidently hands down better than many other competitive applications in the market, especially for HD output quality. Considered about its affordable price, I bought the converting tool and I'm happy ever after.
In the following guide I will show you how to convert Everio MTS files to editable video clips in Adobe Premiere. It's actually quite simple with its very intuitive interface.
This is how the main interface of Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter looks like.
Step 1. Load MTS files into the program. Drag and drop your JVC footage into the app or you can click "Add" to load your files.
Step 2. Choose output format for editing in Adobe Premiere. Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter offer multiple output formats for different purposes or devices, such as iPad, iPhone (I noticed that it also updated its full support for iPhone 4 720p MP4 output), iPod, Apple TV, HD Video, Common Video/Audio, etc. In this case, we can choose MOV (or HD MOV), AVI (or HD AVI), WMV (or HD WMV) format for premiere. I simply choose MPEG-4 HD Video (*.mp4) for the output format.
Step 3. Join JVC MTS files (optional) and convert
Before you click convert button, you may be interested in this great function that I'm going to introduce to you. Yes, to join/merge/combine multiple MTS files into one single video. And it's simple to achieve, just tick the checkbox of "Merge into one file" and there will be only one Video in your destination folder for exported files. After that, click the big yellow Convert button to start conversion right away.
