AVC-HD and .mts flies
on Mar 4, 2012 at 4:56:57 am

I just got a bunch of footage from a client. It was shoot on multiple HMC-150s in AVC-HD. I transferred footage from 5 cards with no problem but the file structure on the 6th was all messed up. it had no playlist file.
The .mts files are still there. I would love to be able to transcode them into a usable codec. Does anyone know of any free options?

I have compresser, squeeze, streamclip, FCP 7&X as well as media composer and premier at my disposal if that helps.

The MTS files are all you need. Doesn't FCP7 or at least FCPX support native MTS use? Pretty much every other NLE does. Did you try just directly dropping them on your timeline (or however you'd normally
import a video file into FCP)? I have used AVCCAM camcorders for some time, and never once worried about anything but the .MTS files.

If that doesn't work, I know that MP4 is widely supported on Macs. You can re-multiplex the MTS files (MTS is just an MPEG-2 Transport Stream, probably the most common video file container format in the world, the basis for digital television, DVD, Blu-ray, etc). I would use a freeware PC program called YAMB for this purpose; not sure it's on the Mac, but pretty likely.

Actually MTS is not natively supported on FCP. Without the card structure intact you need a utility such as http://www.divergentmedia.com/clipwrap

Not anymore.
Download the "AVCCAMImporter" (QT component) from PANASONIC web site and cut directly in FC.

I'm thinking that doesn't work in X but I'll check...

That's for FC.7.
X should be able to work with the .mts files without adding that QT component. In fact X can't use QT Components (Flip4Mac, etc).

Yeah they would be converted though- not played directly.

No.
You can play the .mts in QT, FC or any other QT based application.
You can import the .mts files and drag them to the sequence. No need to convert them or rewrap them before.

I had no luck with putting .mts in to final cut, it doesnt like it at all. only in premier pro cs5 I could get it playing. is there a transcoder that doesnt cost money?

I have no problems.
Have you installed the QT component?
