AVCHD (MTS) video files thumbnails previews

Hello,
How can I have video thumbnail previews for my AVCHD (Mts) video files in Premiere, After Effects?
I can preview alla the other formats but not the above one.
Thank you.

Hunt is correct in that the video codec AVCHD (MPEG4 AVC/H.264) was not supported by Premiere Elements until version  7. A variety of converters were used in those days before Premiere Elements 7 (because of AVCHD non support) and after versions 7 - 9 because of the resource demands of the AVCHD editing in those programs.
Typically the converters in those days took the AVCHD to a MPEG2 HD.mpg form. The most popular one at the time was the free Koyote Soft HD converter. You may want to check it out and determine if it would work for you.

As I recall there were a lucky few at the time who had Sony Vaio computers which offered an add on for AVCHD support in Premiere Elements 4 running on a particular Sony Vaio computer.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Thanks.

  • Importing AVCHD (.MTS) video files- what is needed?

    I cannot import AVCHD files (.MTS extension on file name) from my hard drive into my (old) version of Adobe Premier Elements (version 3.0).
    Am I doing something wrong, do I need to re-install the program, or do I need a newer version of Premier Elements?

  • Elements 12 Organizer unable to preview .mts video files

    I am using Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 and Premiere Elements 12 on Windows 8.1. I have the newest version of Apple QuickTime (7.7.6) installed.
    I import .mts video files from my Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 for organizing along my still photos. I am absolutely certain that previewing the video files in Elements Organizer used to work fine at least before I upgraded from Elements 11 to 12. Maybe it also has been working in Elements 12, but I cannot tell for sure. Now, instead of a preview, I get the error 'The selected file cannot be played because your system does not have the required compressor/decompressor (codec) installed'. If I add one of these files to an Premiere Elements video project, however, the file plays nicely from the Premiere timeline.
    I have tried downgrading my Quick Time versions all the way down to 7.3, with no result.
    Does anyone have an idea what might be wrong?

  • Cannot get  mts video files to play in Elements 11 organizer

    Whenever I try to play an *.MTS video file in Elements 11 organizer I get a codec not installed error.  I am using a Windows 7 PC running Windows 7 Home Premium.  The same files played fine in the Elements 10 organizer.  Also have no Thumbnails after import of the video.  I can edit the videos in Premier Elements 11.

    What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 10 running on? And, does your computer use a NVIDIA GeForce video card/graphics card?
    IMPORTANT. Please read the Announcement at the top of this forum regarding the Premiere Elements 10 NVIDIA GeForce issue. That Announcement describes the problem and gives detailed information on how to deal with the situation.
    Do you have problems getting a video display in the Edit area monitor for still and videos from other sources?
    Also of importance in directing the troubleshooting are the properties of the Panasonic Lumix FZ150 video file that you are importing and the project preset that you are selecting to match the properties of that video. From what I have read of your camera, you could have MPEG-4, AVCHD, or MotionJPEG video compression. But, with that .mts file extension, that would suggest that your camera is set to record AVCHD. Is that correct?  Are you sure of the file extension and video compression for the file?
    The answers to all of the above will point us to the solution to your issue.
    We will be watching for your results.
    Thank you.

  • Need help with conversion progrma for MTS video files.  Can't download videos from Sony TX-10 camera

    Have new macbook pro 13".  Can't download videos from our Sony TX-10 camera.  I understand I need some kind of conversion program for MTS video files.  Need recommendation for a good conversion program to convert the video files.
    Thanks, chieftd

    Well, sigh, that's not going to work.
    I love how I can do months of research to choose the best camera for my needs and budget, which is NO easy task these days, but surprisingly find it on the unsupported list when it's a very popular camera.  So, while it seems to support a whole bunch of other AVCHD options from Sony, not the NEX cameras.
    The NEX cameras are the latest generation of mirrorless cameras (which, ironically, are great b/c they give dSLR quality still images while actually producing HD video that always records silently and stays in focus b/c it's mirrorless).  The NEX 7 was just reviewed as Camera of the Year.
    Bleh. Oh well. Maybe someday.
    And, for anyone reading, Roxio Toast Titanium did convert it just fine but it took about 20 min or my time to set up a handful of clips and then a couple hours to complete converting them for the quality I was looking for.  One was about 10 minutes of a kids' performance on Christmas and it took a long time. It's just not feasible given how many video clips I do with the camera a week - well, feasible when you consider all the cameras where this would be seamless.
    Thanks for posting your reply - I appreciate it.

  • Can't open a .mts video file

    I used to be able to open any video file just by double clicking on it's icon, usually opens MPEG Streamclip if it isn't supported by Quicktime. However, now I can't open a .mts video because it says I need MPEG 2 - Playback Component installed. I used to have that but it's disappeared for some reason. Is there another way to open a .mts video file?

    Is there another way to open a .mts video file?
    Have you tried changing the MTS extension to TS and opening the file with the QT X player?

  • How do I get Elements 13 64 bit to play .mts video files with sound as they do in Elements 11 32 bit?

    I have upgraded to Elements 13 64 bit from Elements 11 32 bit and .mts video files now play without sound - they still play perfectly with sound on Elements 11 32 bit.
    Is there something that needs to be changed to get Elements 13 to play them with sound or have Adope simply hooped .mts playback in Elements 13 64 bit?
    I am running on Windows 8.1 Professional with Media Centre on a Dell XPS15 and have Elements 13 64 bit and Elements 11 32 bit installed.
    Adobe, how do I get the support that is supposed to be available for 90 days after activation?

    Hello jl666,
    I have noticed the same issue having upgraded to PSE13 64bit from PSE9 on Windows 7.  This has been reported to Adobe in several forum threads and I have myself tried on three occasions to get Adobe Technical Support to acknowledge or respond to this issue, so far without any success. 
    Despite the fact that Adobe publically claims to support this format, I was told in my last chat with their technical support that I should buy Premiere Pro and that Elements has never and does not support any video data...
    Unterstützte Dateiformate | Premiere Elements, Photoshop Elements
    Here is my chat transcript which I attach in the hope that someone from Adobe will take this issue seriously and work towards providing a fix.
    Sanyogita: Hello. Welcome to Adobe Technical Support.
    Jon Barber: .MTS files no longer play with sound. .DV files no longer play at all.
    Jon Barber: Hello
    Sanyogita: One moment while I look up your customer record.
    Sanyogita: Please allow me a moment to search for the information.
    Jon Barber: ok
    Sanyogita: I can see you have PSE 13
    Jon Barber: Correct and previously PSE 9 where everything worked fine...
    Sanyogita: MAy I know which application are you using for >MTS files
    Sanyogita: .MTS files
    Jon Barber: This issue is mentioned in various threads in your forums as well, but no response or solution from adobe yet
    Jon Barber: Organiser just double clicking on the file to play it. They play, but with no sound. When I play them in Windows the sound is correctly played
    Sanyogita: In PSE 13 there is no provision of playing videos with sound
    Sanyogita: You need premiere pro to play videos with sound
    Jon Barber: Other formats are correctly played with sound. 
    Jon Barber: Please tell me why I have paid €80 to upgrade from PSE9 to get worse functionality then!
    Jon Barber: This is nonsense!
    Sanyogita: You should purchase Premiere pro for videos
    Sanyogita: PSE 13 is only for photos
    Jon Barber: Complete nonsense and not advertised in your documentation. Are you trying to tell me that no video files play with sound, because that is simply not true!
    Sanyogita: Please purchase Premiere elements for videos
    Jon Barber: Adobe sucks - I will pass your comments onto the appropriate forum threads and hope that other customers also let you know how they feel about this reduction in functionality from previous versions.
    Sanyogita: previous versions of PSE never supported video application
    Jon Barber: You are misinformed. These videos work fine on PSE 9 and most files still work on PSE13, just .MTS files have no sound
    Sanyogita: I am sorry ,I am not an expertise in this product
    Sanyogita: Let me connect you to that team
    Jon Barber: Yes,I can tell that - perhaps you could pass this open bug onto someone who does
    Jon Barber: Please do not close this bug - I am getting annoyed at having to reopen it
    Sanyogita: Please stay online I will transfer your chat now
    Jon Barber: ok thank you
    info: Please wait while I transfer the chat to the appropriate group.
    info: You are now chatting with Jayita Sen.
    Jayita Sen: Hello. Welcome to Adobe Technical Support.
    Jayita Sen: Please allow me a moment while I look into your account & verify the details.
    Jon Barber: Hello
    Jayita Sen: John we only support download &  first installation of PSE 13
    Jayita Sen: please contact the forums for further support
    Jon Barber: This issue is mentioned in several forums and no solution has so far been forthcoming from Adobe.
    Jon Barber: I paid €80 to upgrade from PSE9 and now have worse functionality than before and now you are telling me you cannot help. Is that what Adobe considers customer support?!
    Jon Barber: By the way I did recently download and initally install PSE13 so according to your rules you should provide support.
    Jayita Sen: Jon we don't support "Unexpected behaviours or how to issues"
    Jayita Sen: only forums support it
    Jon Barber: This is not a 'how to issue', it is a bug!
    Jon Barber: It is functionality that previously worked and no longer does. I am not requiring lessons in how to use the system, just trying to do something that already worked in previous versions.
    Jon Barber: Frankly I find these support responses from Adobe shocking. What I expect to hear from you is 'thank you for highlighting this issue, we will work on finding a solution and get back to you and others with the same problem in the customer forums" Not an extraordinary set of excuses for poor software.
    Jayita Sen: I am sorry Jon...but forums is where you can only get the support
    Jon Barber: Customers having to help customers since clearly no-one at Adobe has a clue about their own product. How many customers do you expect to have in 12 months with this service?
    Jon Barber: Goodbye - please contact me if you are geniunely interested in helping your customers rather than fobbing them off with excuses.

  • MTS video files

    How do I import MTS video files from my Sony Handycam HDR-CX160E into Premiere Elements Quick Editor?

    Welcome to the forum.
    Until just the other day, I had never heard of PrE Quick Editor, but it seems to be a limited program, sold from the App Store, for a Mac.
    There might be some tips that can be extrapolated from this recent thread: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1272658?tstart=30
    Not specific to MTS files, the OP was trying to locate their media files in other folders, than those indicated by PrE Quick Editor. The extrapolation would indicate that the program definitely wants the media files in those specific folders.
    If PrE Quick Editor will handle MTS files, I would Copy the entire folder structure, with the media files (all folders), to the My Videos folder, and then Import the media files from there. I do not know if PrE Quick Editor has the same naming conventions, as PrE 11 does, but in PrE 11, one would use Add Media.
    Good luck,
    Hunt

  • What software do i need to convert AVCHD mts/mts2 files to import to iMovie

    What software do i need to convert AVCHD mts/mts2 files to import to iMovie

    As Kirk says, if you have your camera, you can attach it directly.
    Further, if you preserved the entire file structure of your camera (not just the .mts files, but also the folders on the camera), then you can import from that via FILE/IMPORT FROM CAMERA ARCHIVE.
    When you import from a camera, it is recommended that you keep a camera archive so you always have the originals available.
    If you have the .mts files out of context, you will need a third party app to convert. Two that I know of are ClipWrap and Voltaic HD. You should convert the files to Apple Intermediate Codec. And then use FILE/IMPORT/MOVIE.

  • Why do AVCHD (.mts) video thumbnails not appear in Organizer 8?

    Thumbnails for video clips imported into Organizer 8 (via Premiere Elements 8) are not appearing for AVCHD (.mts) files.    Numerous online forums show this is a common issue, however other than renaming file extensions from .mts to .m2ts, I have not found any other more practical solutions.   Adobe customer service was of no help.   Other proposed solutions such as installing new codecs have not solved the issue.   Any ideas?

    I am having the same problem on both systems that I run Premiere Elements 8 Organizer. All software and drivers are up to date.The only way that I can get thumbnails to display for AVCHD files in the Organizer, is to change the file extension from .mts to .m2ts. In my opinion, that is clearly a bug with the Organizer that must be fixed by Adobe ASAP. Organizing video without thumbnails is next to useless.
    If you start a new project and open Premier Elements you can create the thumbnails for AVCHD files with the .mts extension by right clicking each one and selecting Update Thumbnail (which is laborious, at best). However, when you exit the project and go back to Organizer the thumbnails are still not there, nor can you create them. Next, go back into Elements and the thumbnails are there.
    Can you say bug!
    Update 07/15/10: I contacted technical support and they said that this is a known problem. The only solution, if you could call it that, is to use file renaming utility to change all your file extensions from .mts to .m2ts. I hope they fix this problem and release an update soon, as all I shoot these days is AVCHD with the Panasonic HDC-TM700K.

  • Sony WX7 .mts video files not imported into iPhoto 11

    Apple indicates iLife ’11 supports AVCHD (.mts) files, however, I've been unable to get iPhoto 11 to import video files from the Sony WX7 camera. Photo's are imported properly via both usb and directly from the SD card reader in my Macbook Pro (i7) 2011, however, video files are not.  I've read that iMovie '08 supports Sony AVCHD 2011-model video cameras, but iPhoto 11 appears not to.
    Mac OS X v10.6.7, is fully up to date. Has anybody found a solution?

    Not sure where you are seeing that AVCHD is supported in iPhoto '11 but it is not - use iMovie to import your AVCHD movies - that works for my my Sony DSC-HX5

  • Windows Media Player 12, Windows 7 does not play AVCHD (.mts) video in embedded mode, but does in normal mode

    I've run into a problem with WMP 12 on Windows 7 involved in playback of AVCHD files.  When run in 'normal' mode from Windows Explorer, WMP opens the video file and plays it back beautifully.  However, I'm building an application with
    WMP embedded.  When running WMP from within the application (c#), the same AVCHD plays audio but no video.
    I've seen this type of problem before with respect to audio playback of mp4 files in WMP from embedded-mode:  the MP4 license prohibited audio playback when run from embedded mode but played the audio fine when WMP was launched from explorer.
     I was able to solve this particular problem by using a 3rd party codec pack.
    In this case, I've tried a number of packs K-Lite, etc., but to no avail.  My problem persists.  I suspect perhaps I've encountered a similar licensing-type issue with a SONY CODEC and the state in which WMP is playing back files but I
    have not yet been able to track it down.
    Any ideas?

  • MTS Video Hi Def Preview?

    Greetings:  Bridge CS5 (& previous versions) can display preview frames for quite a few video formats. such as mpeg, avi, mp4 and so on.  But I have yet to figure out how - if it's even possible - to display previews of my hi def clips from my Canon HF S100 - with a .MTS file extension/format.  I have gone so far as to copy the whole SD card file structure onto my hard drive, then rummage around with Bridge CS5, but to no avail.  I've tried putting the files in the Playlist  folder in the Stream folder, also tried the files in the ClipInf folder going to the Stream folder, but to no avail.
    Has anyone had any success with this? I've been waiting for this for two generations now, and I really had high hopes for the CS5 version.
    Someone has suggest using Premiere's preview function, but I find that very awkward, and besides I want the Bridge panel to be open and visible to me on one screen while I'm working in Premiere on another screen.
    Well, any suggestions will be greatly, greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Norm

    Unfortunately GSpot does not read mts or m2ts.
    Mediainfo does.
    Even if it would say the codec is loaded it is no garantee it will display the format.

  • Any idea why my *.mts video files won't play audio in Bridge CS6? Imagery plays fine.

    I'm using a Windows & Dual Quad machine.

    Thanks Curt!
    Here's some more info. The *.mts files from Panasonec GH2 play fine in VLC and WMP.  When I tested oher edited files, originating from mts files, and edited in PP-CS5.5 and exported as mp4 files, the audio and video in the mp4 files play just fine in Bridge CS6. Also the audio in mov and avi files play fine in Bridge. Just to see if it had something to do with the file structure on the capture card, I recorded some video with audio and played it directly from the capture card and the audio still wouldn't play. So, it appears that Bridge CS6 currently can't handle the audio in the Panasonid mts wrapper unless I were to transcode it to mp4 or mov, etc. I'm concerned that this might result in some loss of quality, possibly baloon file size, and waste more time than it's worth.
    My work around to date is to associate mts files with wmp in Windows 7 (Control Panel\Programs\Default Programs\Set Associations) so that when I double-click on the mts files in bridge, both the audio and video will play OK in wmp and I can move forward.
