I have taken Panasonic HDC-TM700 for my holidays in Hawaii, and shot videos for the celebration there. After the trip, I would like to put the AVCHD videos to my home network with Netgear NAS for sharing media and file. Before routing the videos to the NAS, I would like to merge the AVCHD footage for playback on HDTV with HDI Dune, which supports AVCHD files.
While looking for the lossless AVCHD joiner via google, I find Aunsoft Final Mate to easily merge and stitch MTSS/M2TS small files into one without conversion. The files from the camcorder or the same folder will be listed as one movie by default. However, the videos with different recording mode or settings like frame rate, bit rate, resolution will be sorted as different movies.
Below is the fast guide for you to join MTS/M2TS files for NAS on Windows without encoding/conversion.
Step 1. Capture AVCHD videos from camcorder.
Connect Panasonic HS700 camcorder to computer via USB cable 2.0, run Aunsoft Final Mate as the best AVCHD MTS/M2TS joiner on Windows to stitch MTS/M2TS files for NAS. Choose to run the wizard in the pop-up window and import videos from cam.
Step 2. Trim/Cut off AVCHD videos. (optional)
Double click the movie to start playing on the program. You can click the scissors icon to cut video and delete the unwanted part. There is also Goto button to get to the time point you want to trim the video.
Step 3. Lossless output in original format.
Click the Export button on the program UI, and then click the OK button in the pop-up window, the MTS/M2TS joiner will start combining the files into one. If you get two movies on the program, you will get two files as output.
After the joining process, it is easy to put/store the joined videos to Netgear NAS, and play the HD videos on HDTV via HDI Dune.
If you got .mov, .avi, .mpg, .mp4 from your digital camera, rather than .mts, .m2ts, .tod, .mod, you can use Aunsoft Video Converter to merge and stitch the files into one.
