No mater you are using the blank Panasonic HDC-SD60, or the red/silver color of Panasonic SD60, you can capture videos at 1080/60i and 1080/50i with AVCHD standard compliant file (MPEG4-AVC/H.264) and record audio in Dolby Digital AC3 2-ch. The Panasonic HD Writer AE 2.1 can edit the .mts files from SD60, but with only limited functions. When bringing the 1920x1080 MTS video to Sony Vegas Pro, you may face problem when trying to import the .mts files to Sony Vegas Pro 8, or even Sony Vegas 9 and Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10.
One of my friends got jumpy videos on Sony Movie Studio HD 10 Platinum Suite, after transferring the .mts files from SDHC card to computer. The video playback on VLC is very bad. This might be caused by the unstable support in Sony Vegas and Sony Movie Studio. Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter is the recommended Panasonic SD60 MTS to Sony Vegas converter, which converts MTS videos to HD MPEG for easy editing in Sony Vegas, and smooth playback on VLC.
Have a look at the steps below, and you will find the Panasonic AVCHD converter the perfect partner for your Panasonic HDC-SD60.
Step 1. Load Panasonic videos to Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter.
After copying .mts files from Panasonic HDC-SD60 to computer hard drive, run Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter as the top-rated Panasonic AVCHD converter, and click the "Add" button to load .mts videos for conversion.
Step 2. Choose HD MPEG-2 format.
Click the "Format" option, and choose Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas > MPEG-2 (*.mpg) as output format. The Panasonic MTS converter will transcode 1080i MTS to HD MPEG-2 with the original 1920x1080 video resolution.
Step 3. Convert Panasonic SD60 MTS to MPG for Sony Vegas.
Click the convert button under the preview window, the conversion from Panasonic HDC-SD60 MTS to MPEG-2 for Sony Vegas Pro and Sony Movie Studio starts immediately. The videos will be deinterlaced from interlacing to progressive for PC playback.
