Transcode MTS files to Sony Movie Studio for smooth editing

Anyway to import and edit AVCHD MTS in Sony Movie Studio 13/12/11? Just get tips and tricks from this page.

I shoot video with a Canon VIXIA HF G20 at 1920×1080. The camera generates AVCHD files with a file extension of .MTS. I need to edit the AVCHD MTS in Sony Movie Studio 13, which supposedly supports importing from AVCHD camcorder with USB 2.0 connection. Within Movie Studio 13, however, when I preview my clips on the timeline, the quality is terrible, make editing impossible. Apparently this is a common problem with MTS and Sony Movie Studio.

Searching high and low, I got some clues. To import and play AVCHD MTS files in Sony Movie Studio flawlessly, we really have two options:

1) Get a much more powerful computer
2) Convert the MTS files to something less compressed like MPEG-2, AVI for Sony Movie Studio

Personally, I now would choose the second way and to get the work done, a MTS converter seems to be necessary. After trying 3+ MTS converter software on the market, I highly recommend Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter to convert MTS files to Sony Movie Studio 13/12/11 compatible format without loosing quality.

The program is an easy-to-use AVCHD MTS converter for users, which can help you transcode MTS/M2TS into a different format like MPEG-2 with least quality loss. You should then be able to import the new file into Sony Movie Studio with smooth editing without any trouble.

Besides, this program can also enable you to effortlessly encode/re-encode AVCHD footage shot by Panasonic, Canon, JVC, Sony cameras for smoothly importing and editing in Pinnacle Studio 12/1314/15/16, Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas, Cyberlink PowerDirector, Avid Studio, Magix Movie Edit Pro, Windows Movie Maker and more NLEs(Get more AVCHD MTS/M2TS Editing Tips).
