How to convert Canon/Panasonic/Sony MTS/MXF/MOV/XAVC videos for playing on Surface (Pro) 2
Step 1. Run this Camcorder to Surface Converter; add videos.

Tips: About interlaced/progressive
Most of you may choose to record videos in interlaced (like 1080/60i, 1080/50i); videos playback in camera are flawless. But if you transfer to other device like computer or a full-size tablet, the small waves inside this interlaced video would be enlarged and finally affect the video playback.
In order to get smooth videos, you are suggested to click the pencil-like “Edit” icon on the top and switch to “Effect” tab, check “Deinterlacing”. You can also trim/crop/edit audio/subtitles there.
And if you are not satisfied with the default video specs, click “Settings” to adjust target file settings. You are allowed to change video size, bitrate, frame rate and audio specs accordingly.
