M2T conversion-
on Nov 14, 2010 at 5:43:16 pm

Is M2T the same as M2TS? I need to convert M2T files recorded to a Sony HVR-MRC1 Memory Recording Unit on the back of a Sony HVR Z&U (set for 1080i 30).

Someone on the Cow had suggested Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter - but the demo I downloaded only seems to give h.264 as a choice for HD QuickTime. And it also seems to be remarkably slow software.

I'm using FCP 6.06 - Does anyone know a better conversion method? I also have the video on tape.

Thanks!

Hi Dennis,
You are right, Pavtube is not the tool.
Try ClipWrap. Aside of transcoding your files it has a very interesting "Re-wrap" function, but at least with my MTS files, makes FC crash.

Hi Rafael - You're saying ClipWrap - (or Pavtube) makes your FCP crash? What version are you running?

thanks!

Hi Dennis,
I have ClipWrap 2.2
I can use it for transcoding to Prores, but are the re-wrapped files which makes crash FC.

Hi Rafael - I'm sorry , but I don't know what rewrapped files are. Do you think I would be O-K transcoding M2T to ProRes 422 - or do those files become the rewrapped files you mentioned - and crash my system?

(Sorry - I'm not to technical).

Hi Dennis,
Go ahead and convert to Prores. No problem to edit.
Re-wrapping is very interesting because there is no rendering, no transcoding.
The MT2 file is just "re-packed" as QT and can be edit in FC.
This would be the faster and less destructive workflow, but at the moment doesn't work with some AVCHD flavors (JVC, Canon?)

Rafael - Used ClipWrap in a test run converting to ProRes, and rewrapping - which turned the M2T clips into Apple HDV. The latter clips are much smaller than their comparable ProRes clips, and play much smoother in Quick Time. They also look just fine. Do you think I'll be o-k editing the Apple HDV versions? (Not sure why I wouldn't be - but I know ProRes 422 is considered an editing codec.

Thanks!

it should be OK unless you try to edit with few layers, effects etc.
Make a test and if you see no problem, go on.
Re-wrappig is the faster and cleaner option.
Is just the original video/audio on a QT envelop.
