JVC GZ-HD620 is the AVCHD camcorder with 120GB HDD. It includes Super LoLux to offer good quality video and images in low-light condition. However, I could not capture my JVC GZ-HD620 videos to Avid Media Composer 4.0. I have not tied with a later Avid yet.
I saw the recommendation of Aunsoft Final Mate to capture videos directly from camcorder to computer, and wonder if it would capture JVC GZ-HD620 AVCHD to Avid MC 4 with high quality. After downloading the free trial version, I notice that it actually capture videos from camcorder, but there is no access to get to Avid. I could only convert the videos to Avid Media Composer 4 supported format like .wmv, .mpg. Fortunately, Aunsoft Final Mate utilizes my NVIDIA CUDA-enabled GPU Quadro 4000 for fast conversion.
Here I would like to share my experience with you about Aunsoft Final Mate on my PC for JVC videos.
1. Run Aunsoft Final Mate as the JVC Everio AVCHD to Avid 4 Converter with NVIDIA CUDA and Intel acceleration, connect JVC camcorder to computer via USB cable. Follow the wizard to import JVC .mts raw video clips.
2. While I choose the Import option from the wizard, it will automatically merge my JVC videos in the same recording mode. It is easy when I shot and stop videos from time to time. But if I store the videos on the camcorder for a few days, it may get mixed with different events. However, I can separate the events on timeline.
3. For interlaced videos, there is one checkbox for easily deinterlacing 1080i to progressive mode for PC playback. Just click the first button as Video Restoration button and check the box for deinterlacing.
4. To export JVC AVCHD to Avid MC 4, just click the "Export" button and then the "Export into Editor" button. Choose Adobe Premiere > Adobe Premiere WMV (VC-1) (*.wmv) or Adobe Premiere MPEG-2 (*.mpg) as output format. Click the OK button and the conversion from JVC MTS to WMV/MPG for Avid MC 4 will start immediately.
The conversion speed is almost 5x faster comparing to other converters, while converting JVC GZ-HD620 MTS to WMV with NVIDIA CUDA technology. It is easy to import the videos to Avid Media Composer 4.
1. I also notice that there is option for Intel decoder when go to the Preferences settings under the Tools menu. It will utilize Intel CPU for fast conversion too.
