“I recently bought a HD camcorder, the files it creates are MTS extension and from what I have read online, these files can be burned to Blu ray Discs. I have downloaded a free AVCHD to BD burning software – MultiAVCHD, but before put them to BD, I want to cut off the blank or unimportant parts from the MTS files, then recombine them and still export to MTS without any conversion or loss of quality? Can anyone confirm this to me?”
In order to solve this program, you need use three tools:
1. Aunsoft Final Mate (Directly capture camcorder MTS/M2TS recordings， and merge them without quality loss for cutting off/trimming/splitting.
2. MultiAVCHD (A real free BD burning software which helps to author/burn AVCHD MTS/M2TS to Blu-ray disc with no quality loss.)
3. BD Burner (Want to burn BD, this hardware is necessary.)
Now I will introduce the step-by-step guide for authoring high def camcorder files MTS/M2TS into Blu-ray Disc.
Part 1: Merge MTS files into one and cut off MTS/M2TS unimportant parts.
Step 1: Download Aunsoft Final Mate as a AVCHD Cutter/Joinerand launch the app.
Step 2: Capture/Import MTS/M2TS from Camcorder directly to the program or load from the footage folder stored on your HDD via “Add A Path” button. Drag the mts clips to Movies column, and then select “Create A Single Movie” to merge them into one file.
Step 3: Drag the merged file to the timeline, and you can cut/split the MTS file here. Click on the Vernier, and move to the time point you want to cut or split. Then select the unwanted or unimportant parts and click Delete.
Step 4: Choose Lossless Mode as Output and click Export button to start.
Part 2: Author/Burn AVCHD MTS/M2TS to Blu-ray (BD) with multiAVCHD
After you successfully cut off and merge MTS/M2TS files to hard drive, you now can author/burn AVCHD MTS/M2TS to Blu-ray disc with multiAVCHD.
Step1. Download the latest version multiAVCHD_4.1 (33MB) .
Note: Make sure you have at least twice (2x) the size of input files/folders free space allocated in the path you selected for TEMP folder/drive.
Step 2.Run multiAVCHD and add MTS or M2TS file by clicking “Add Video files” in the menu bar on the top of the software interface and specifying destination path of BD folder in pop-up window.
Step 3: Click “Start” button to choose output format and burn.
Before you start burn mts or m2ts file to Blu-ray disc, make sure you insert a writable Blu-ray disc through Blu-ray drive. After that click “start” and then choose “For all Blu-ray players” in “Select destination media (USB/SD/SDHC/MMC/MemoryStick)”. The program immediately starts to burn. You can follow the process in “Log tab” at the right of the program’s interface. The process time depends on your original size of MTS or m2ts file.
1. Make sure your BD drive is both readable and writable for burning a Blu-ray disc. Some BD drives are only readable.
2. What is multiAVCHD: Combine multiple AVCHD, BD (Blu-ray Disc) or DVD folders and MKV, AVI, TS, M2TS/MTS, MPEG/MPG, MP4, M2V, VC-1, 264, EVO, TRP or MOV files and author them into a single AVCHD/BD structure or author HD-DVD.
