In reply to: thx Kees

are problematic. Suggest using computer hardware that exceeds the video editor's minimum requirements and using a video editing application that can deal with MTS files. Once those files are in the video editor and editing is done, the editor will have rendering and export functions to pretty much whatever you want as the video file final product.

Apple iMovie '08 or newer... or current versions of Final Cut.
or
Current versions of Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere.

I've managed to convert the file but the problem I'm facing now is how do you send it via free e-mail when it's still large file. The free e-mails have limitations unless you pay for the upgrade or post the file online such as facebook.

Email is generally

not designed to transport large files - including "high quality" video. As you have found, high quality video that others can actually use generally means large file size. If you insist on emailing, then apply more compression - in a smaller window, the video will look just fine - make the video window larger and the effects of compression (discarding video data) will be apparent. This is similar to still image compression.

Vimeo.com lets you post the video with a password so access is limited to whomever you share that password with (and whomever *they* share the password with). Youtube has *some* privacy, but it is rather limited. With Facebook or MySpace and similar social networking sites, the "privacy" is also rather limited - I *think* you can only allow Friends to access videos and images if you set that option in the profile settings.

Another method is to use a file transfer site like YouSendIt.com. You upload the file to their site and you send a link and password to those you want to download the file. There are some file size limitations and different grades of service for different (larger) file sizes or amount of time the file can remain posted (or you can always re-upload)...

In my opinion, using email for large file transfer is like trying to send someone an automobile via FedEx, USPS, UPS, etc. You can do it in small pieces, but it was not designed to send one huge "thing".

according to my experience

In reply to: MTS file conversion...

I have a JVC Everio HD300 (AVCHD) camcorder,i am annoyed with the MTS files, for they counldn't be edit on Adobe Premiere but now i found out a fastest and easiest way to solve it-just use a professional HD Video converter which can convert MTS/TOD/MOD to wmv, mov, mp4, avi, etc. without any problem.The software seems to do a decent job. I've had good results converting the .mts files to .mov, with the settings h.264, 1200, 1280*720, 25fps, aac. The files look good on my PC running Adobe Premiere, edit easily, and convert well to DVD format.
Download a demo version.

Best solution I want to offer you.

In reply to: MTS file conversion...

As far as I am concerned, Aunsoft MTS Converter is a best choice for those who want to convert AVCHD/MTS/M2TS files to other common formats. From my own experience using AVCHD Converters, Mac or Windows, I am sure that two elements should be taken into consideration: high effiency and security. Speaking frankly, my first impression of Aunsoft products is very memorable and wonderful. I believe that you guys will easily convert your MTS files to WMV or MPEG with this software I mentioned.

Best regards,
Alice
