Summary: This guide here mainly can tell us how to ingest MTS from Sony camera to After Effects CC for a nice editing on the latest operation Mac Yosemite. Why not join us to know how it works if you have similar troubles.
Q:’ I have After Effects full version and recently I work the CC as my favorite. One week ago I shot some AVCHD(.mts/.m2ts) 10 sec long clips, when I play it back it lose a lot of quality. It also very choopy and will not play in fps real time. When I render this 10sec long video its come out to be 700mb and the video also very choppy and skips a lot. What I now want to get to know is how to edit is with my Premiere CC with no quality loss.’
Although Adobe announced that After Effects natively supports AVCHD importing, and mostly you can import MTS to After Effects for editing, you’ll find the movie hops back and forth, or the video quality lost when you play it as the users described below. Maybe here we can recommend you an assistant called Pavtube MTS to Premier Pro CC for Mac, which not only can offer you the best output for Premiere but also with not so much quality lost.
Let’s follow the step-by-step guide below to achieve your goal smoothly.
Copy the .mts files from HD digital camera or camcorder to your computer. Launch the Mac MTS Converter, and you may either click “Add” button to import .mts files, or directly drag and drop the files into this program. To import MTS to Adobe After Effects, I follow Adobe Premiere/ Sony Veags tab and select MPEG-2 (*.mpg) as output format. Alternative formats are WMV, AVI, MOV, DV, etc. If you’d like to combine multiple MTS files to be a single file, you can tick the checkbox “Merge into one file”.
Additionally, as the source MTS files are AVCHD MTS videos and usually with AC3 5.1 audio, you can retain the 5.1 audio by adjusting the audio codec to ac3 and bit rate to 224000bps (or above), then select 5.1 Channels in drop-down list of Channels box as it shows below.
Finally, click the ‘Convert’ button to finish your preparation and after that, start up Premiere Pro CC, follow File>.Import>> File…to load your output videos in.
