How are you gonna do with your recordings with your HD camcorder? If you are looking for a way to compress your HD videos for burning into a SD DVD so that you can share the videos with your family and friends in your DVD player, MTS converter is the tool for you. Here in this tutorial I will explain the detailed process of converting MTS files and burning them into a SD DVD with imgBurn.
PART 1: SAVE AVCHD MTS/M2TS TO PC
Different camcorder may have different ways to extract video files. Generally, you need to turn the camcorder on and then connect the camcorder to the computer with the USB cable and access the memory stick by navigating to the ‘hard-drive’ camcorder. Or you may need the software in your camcorder package or free video capture software like CaptureFlux to help get videos from your camcorder to your computer.
PART 2: CONVERT MTS/M2TS TO DVD NTSC VOB FILES
Step 1: Import AVCHD MTS/M2TS videos to Aunsoft MTS converter
Add MTS/M2TS files from your computer to the converter program by clicking "Add" button in the menu bar. Batch conversion is also supported. So you can import multiple AVCHD MTS/M2TS files.
Step 2: Edit videos
Editing functions are available after checking "Editor". You are allowed to add text/image/video watermarks, trim, crop, replace audio, etc.
Step 3: Choose output format
Now it’s time to select output format from "Format" drop-down list. In VCD/DVD/SVCD section, you can choose the exact DVD file that meets your requirements, whether it’s NTSC DVD or PAL DVD, 16:9 or 4:3.
Step 4: Convert MTS to DVD NTSC
Click "Convert" button to start AVCHD MTS/M2TS to DVD NTSC conversion. The conversion time depends on the size of your source files.
PART 3: Burn DVD NTSC VOB files to a SD DVD
Step 1: Choose "Build" mode
Run imgBurn and you will face a Ez-Mode Picker. Choose "Write files/folders to disc" in Ez-Mode Picker or Choose "Mode"->"Build" to start building a project. The "Build" mode will allow you to create an image file from files and folders to be saved on your computer or network - or you can write the files and folders directly to a disc.
Step 2: Add VOB files to imgBurn
Import DVD NTSC VOB files generated in the first step into imgBurn by browsing for a source file or directly enter file path in the source drop- down list.
After that, insert your writable DVD and then choose "Output"-> "Device" or you can switch between the two output modes 'Device' or 'Image File', by clicking on the switch icon (see screenshot above). You can select the proper drive you are going to use if you have several drives installed. If you have several drives installed, you can select the desired one from
destination drop-down list.
By pressing "calculator image" icon your projects image size will be (re-)calculated and the "Image Information" values will be updated.
Step 3: Burn the Disc
If you need to name volume labels, you can enter the text you want to use as name for the "Volume Label" for the various file systems by clicking "Labels" in menu bar: ISO9660, Joliet and UDF. (Check definition of volume label in "Tips")
Then by clicking on the "Burn" button, the building process starts with the writing to disc.
By clicking on the red cancel button in the right corner of the burning interface, you can select to either abort the current task or set it to pause.
Tips: Volume Label
A volume label is the name given to a specific volume in a file system. In the FAT file system, the volume label was traditionally restricted to 11 characters (reflecting the 8.3 restrictions, but not divided into name and extension fields) even when long file name was enabled, stored as an entry within a disk's root directory with a special volume-label attribute bit set, and also copied to an 11-byte field within the Extended BIOS Parameter Block of the disk's boot sector.
