Tips for Transferring M2TS files to Windows Movie Maker

Summary: Tried to import M2TS files into Windows Movie Maker for further editing, only to find Windows Movie Maker failed to open M2TS files? The easy workaround is to convert M2TS to WMV video format, read on this post to learn how-to!

M2TS is a filename extension used for the BDAV MPEG-2 Transport Stream container file format. It is used for multiplexing audio, video and other streams. Many AVCHD camcorders, such as the Sony HDR, Panasonic Lumix, Canon VIXIA/Legria camcorders can capture videos in .m2ts(another extent of .mts) video formats. The point here is, when you import M2TS to Windows Movie Maker, you may get some troubles that you can't get .m2ts video into Windows Movie Maker directly:

"Well i got a huge predicament, with my older capture card that i used to have was the "Roxio HD pro" that i recorded my first 30 or so video's, it recorded the file type into a M2TS format. Which does not load up into Windows Movie Maker. Any quick solution?"



In fact, Windows Movie Maker has added the AVCHD .mts, .m2ts formats as the input video, but there are so many limits you are facing like, system requirements, video frame rate, whole AVCHD structure(Windows Movie Maker can't recognize single M2TS video), etc. So if you want to edit your M2TS files with Windows Movie Maker smoothly, you will need to transcode .m2ts files to Windows Movie Maker supported format such as WMV.

To finish the task, it's undoubtedly that a video conversion program is needed. You can just get Brorsoft M2TS Video Converter here to convert M2TS files to WMV for Windows Movie Maker. No extra tools are required. The original quality of M2TS AVCHD files will be kept. Download it and follow the steps below to convert M2TS videos to Windows Movie Maker for editing.

Canon XC10 4K MXF footage importing issues with Adobe Premiere Elements 13/12/11

Does Canon XC10 recorded 4K MXF footages just go straight to Premiere Elements? In this article, we’ll give you the tips how to import and edit XC10 MXF with Premiere Elements without problems.

Though Canon XC10 camcorder can help you to record high quality 4K MXF footages, but usually it can make video editing a real nightmare. “I’ve got a ton of Canon XC10 footage that I’m trying to import the XC10 4K MXF files to Premiere Elements 13 for further editing. Since the files come out natively as MXF, Premiere Elements 13 couldn’t recognize these files at all, let alone do the polishing work. What should I do?”



Currently 4K footage is not widely supported yet. It's enough to make you want to pull your hair out. The Internet is full of discussions on this issue, but we don't know why Adobe can't fix it? The bottom line, however, is that once you convert your XC10 4K MXF files to H.264 MOV using Brorsoft MXF Converter for Mac, there are absolutely no problems regardless of file lengt...which in our case is perhaps a four minute movie.

We were concerned with possibly losing quality by transcoding Canon XC10 4K MXF to H.264 for Premiere Elements with Brorsoft.

We thought some users might want to know this because it permits Premiere users to rectify this problem and continue on with it.
