If you have MKV files with subtitles, but lose the subtitles when transcoding MKV to MP4, AVI, MOV, MPEG, WMV, etc, MKV Converter will be a good choice.



Panasonic introduced the DMC-ZS35 at CES 2014, a compact digital camera that will feature a 20x optical zoom. Its 3-inch (460k dot) LCD can flip upward by 180 degrees for self-portraits. Built-in Wi-Fi allows for remote control of the camera, as well as photo sharing. The camera can shoot continuously at 10 fps, and can also record Full HD video at 1080/30p in AVCHD Lite format. As the CES device mania dies down, if you are going to grasp the new ZS35, you may consider the unavoidable question. How to recognize and open DMC-ZS35 AVCHD Lite in FCP X or other NLE software?



You know AVCHD footage is not easy for editing because of the heavy compression HD mode and the finishing codec (AVCHD or H.264). Though the newer full-fledged NLEs will edit AVCHD files, they also require powerful, robust computers and cannot handle the 1080P/1080i AVCHD footage well. Actually, most programs are not setup to view and open AVCHD unless you know good video conversion program for MTS file.


You must hear of MTS Recovery, which features recover lost and deleted MTS files from camcorder. But my friend, John, got lots problem to try this software. He shot a wedding yesterday with HMC150.  He has Data Rescue 2, which was able to recover JPEG stills from all 214 of my shots (a small thumbnail of the first frame of each shot), but nothing else. the AVCCAM Restorer didn't work. It said "A file necessary for restoration is not found". The Photo Rescue delivered the goods, but the recovered .mts clips are missing heads and tails. Damn it! It's so annoying and time-consuming. Finally, he downloaded Aunsoft MTS Converter for Mac. It works!


Since converting AVCHD to ProRes MOV for native editing in FCP can be a solution, many conversion tools can do it. My friend tried the free Handbrake. But the audio and video are not sync. What's a pity. Anyway, MTS Converter is perfect at this problem and it is affordable. To support for AVCHD MTS files, The program also features transcode AVCHD/AVCHD 2.0 to ProRes MOV, AIC MOV, HDxND MOV, DVCPRO MOV for FCP, iMovie, Avid, QuickTime for viewing and playing. More than 50 output formats makes it is easy to convert MTS/M2TS to AVI, MP4, MPEG, FLV, MKV, WMV, etc for different Media Players. The advanced technology and the clear interface it use make the timesaving conversion process effective and efficient with only 3 or 4 steps. To open and edit AVCHD MTS could be easily.
