Mmpeg mts to mov - slow playback
on Sep 22, 2016 at 1:01:30 pm

Hello.

I have recently started using Resolve.

With normal .MTS I was running at half res with smooth realtime playback, but there was no audio

I used Mmpeg to rewrap to .mov using the following code:

for %%a in ("*.mts") do ffmpeg -i "%%a" "newfiles\%%~na.mov"
pause

The file size is a 3rd of what it was before, and in the Resolve, playback is terrible.....but audio is there :P

Am I doing the rewraping wrong? should I be using a codec or something?
Please help.

Thank you.

Highly-compressed formats like MTS were generally intended to be delivery formats, not editing formats.

My advice would be to transcode them to ProRes or DNxHD, which is a lot easier to deal with in post.

Thank you Mark.

i tried transcoding to Dnxhd, but found it a nightmare, so in the end went it Prores via "Xmedia recoder" and it was free :)
