MTS video files are commonly shot with Full HD AVCHD camcorders(Sony,JVC,Canon,Panasonic,Samsung,Sanyo,Toshiba…). The MTS files format is H.264/AVC encoded, and is not an friendly format for most media players(WMP,WMC,VLC,MPlayer,Quicktime) and editing software(NLEs). Surely the lately released Adobe Premiere CS5 works well with MTS footage, yet normal camcorder users prefer simpler editing software, like Pinnacle Studio, Magix Edit Pro,CyberLink PowerDirector,Corel Video Studio,AE,Sony Vegas Moive Studio,FCE,iMovie,WMM etc. If you’d like to enjoy MTS video freely on iPad, PS3,HD Media Player,HDTV, HTC Evo droid phone, etc, or edit the MTS video to make a short film, MTS file Converter is helpful. You can convert MTS files format from AVCHD camcorder to various video and audio formats using this powerful MTS files to MPEG converter so as to play the MTS shootings more smoothly and edit MTS footage more freely. The app convert MTS files to MPEG-4, MPEG-2 and MPEG-1 encoded formats for portable devices and editing software. A free trial version is available, only watermark of Pavtub logo will appear on the screen of converted videos. You may refer to below guide how to convert MTS files to MPEG with Pavtube MTS file foramt Converter.
Step 1. Free download MTS file Converter, install and launch the program.
Once you run it, click “Add” button and browse to the MTS files you’d like to convert. When the MTS footages are loaded to the program, you can view the videos from the Preview window. Simply select an item and click the “Play” button. When the video is playing, you may take snapshot when it plays to your favorable frame. Simply click the “Snapshoot” button.
Step 2. Select MPEG as output format for playing and editing.
Click on “Format”, and select output format from the drop-down list. MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 encoded formats are available. If you would like to play the MTS footages on portable players like iPod, iPhone, PSP, Archos, Zune, Pocket PC,HDTV etc, simply follow the corresponding profile group and select desired format. In each group there is a star format, which is optimized format.
If you would like to edit MTS footage, please follow “Common Video”-> “MPEG-2(*.mpg)”. To maintain HD video quality, simply follow “HD Video” -> “MPEG-2 HD Video” (*.mpg) and customize the A/V parameters based on your personal requirements. MPEG-TS HD video (*.ts) format is also available.
Step 3. Set output location for generated MPEG files.
Do not forget to specify a folder to save the converted MPEG files. Simply click the small folder icon next to “Output” field and specify an output folder to save converted files. And make sure there is enough space for saving the output files.
Step 4: Start converting MTS files to MPEG format.
After the above steps are done, you can click “Convert” button to start converting MTS to MPEG formats (*.mpg, *.mp4, *.ts etc). The MTS Converter supports batch conversion so you may load multiple MTS files and convert MTS files to MPEG at one time. You may also merge them to one file by checking the box “Merge into one file” before conversion starts. After conversion you can click “Open” button to get the generated MPEG files for play back or edit.
Tip . Click “Settings” button to and set the bit rate, frame rate, channels, sampling rate to desired values. Notice that you can not “convert up” video quality. If you selected HD Video in Step 2, we advise you to adjust the A/ V parameters to be the same with source MTS footage so as to bear least quality loss at proper file size. You may check the A/V parameters of original video in preview panel, and it will display the video information when you select an item. In case it displays no information, please click the “《” sign. When I convert MTS to MPEG-2 HD Video (*.mpg), and set “high quality” (18,000kbps) as video bit rate, the video quality I get is much better than commercial DVDs. The lower bit rate you set, the smaller file size you get, the lower video quality it outputs.
The deinterlacing option allows you to convert interlaced video into a non-interlaced form, so that you can enjoy a better and clearer video effect.
