“I used Avid Liquid 7.2 to import my HD videos from JVC Everio GZ-HD7. The workflow is as easy as changing the output file extension from .tod to .m2t, and import the .m2t files to Avid Liquid. It worked like a charm. Avid Liquid is the editing software I used for my work on wedding videos, video tutorials, promo videos, sports events and so on. However, there is no maintenance for Avid Liquid any more and I had to upgrade to Avid Media Composer. To my surprised, Avid Media Composer does not recognize the .m2t files, not even the .tod files.”
