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

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    cdlansford
    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.
    http://www.koyotesoft.com/video-software/free-hd-converter.html
    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.

  • 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

  • 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.

    Hi Catherine,
    Welcome to the Adobe forums.
    Please try the steps mentioned below and check if it works for you.
    1. Launch Premiere Pro and create a Project, go to File menu>Project Settings>Renderer and change the Renderer to Software only mode, delete previews if you get a prompt and then try to import the clip.
    2. If step 1 fails or the Renderer is already on Software only mode, go to Start Menu and search for Device Manager, go into Display Adapters and Right click on the Graphics card to select Update driver software option, on the next screen choose "Browse my computer for driver software", then choose "Let me Pick from a list..." option and from the list select "Standard VGA Graphics adapters. You might need to change the screen resolution of your screen and once done restart the machine again.
    Launch Premiere Pro and import the clip to check.

  • Bizarre problem trying to import .MTS (AVCHD) files into PSE7 Organizer

    Hi
    b Summary of problem:
    *I recently upgraded to PSE 7 / PRE 7
    *I am trying to import .MTS (AVCHD) files into the PSE7 Organizer
    *I get a "...did not contain any supported file types..." error on attempted import
    b HOWEVER...
    *I can edit same footage in PRE7
    *This footage is automatically added to the Organizer
    *I can play this footage in the PSE7 organizer but generating thumbnails takes ages
    *Camera: Sony HDR SR12 producing .MTS files (full 1920x1080i HD)
    *PC: Intel Core i7 940 CPU, 6GB RAM, RADEON HD 4870 512MB
    *OS: Vista 64 bit
    b Detail:
    I have recently upgraded my PRE/PSE bundle to ver 7 primarily because the new version of PRE boasts support for AVCHD.
    Having installed the new software I quickly tried editing footage in PRE7 with video taken on my Sony HDR SR12 camera (footage taken in full 1920x1080i HD) and it works! Hoorah! I can now finally edit AVCHD footage in it's native format using PRE. Thank you Adobe!
    But my joy was very shortlived because when I tried to import some other footage from the same batch into my PSE7 Video Catalog it wouldn't work. I got a pop up box containing the following error:
    i "Nothing was imported. The file(s) or folder(s) selected to import did not contain any supported file types, or the files are already in the catalog."
    Under this message is a list of the files that I tried to import. Next to each one there is a reason (it's the same reason for each clip):
    i "Reason: The file is damaged or is a format that cannot be included in the Organizer."
    To import files I use the following method: File / Get Photos and Videos / From Files and Folders
    HOWEVER, the files that I imported directly into PRE7 in order to edit them have (surprise, surprise!) automatically been added PSE7 Organizer's Catalog. It takes a quite a while to generate a thumbnail for each clip but it does eventually do it and when it does I can play that footage in PSE7.
    Just in case you're confused by this stage... If I try and manually add files to the PSE7 Organizer it doesn't work BUT if I edit that footage in PRE7 and then load the PSE7 Organizer I see the footage has been automatically added. This makes no sense whatsoever!
    Am I doing something really stupid here? Why oh why will the PSE7 Organizer not import .MTS (AVCHD) files?!
    NB: While searching for a solution to this problem I have, thanks to this Forum, found out about the K-Lite Codec Pack. I downloaded and installed the Basic pack v4.4.5 and now I can, at least, play my .MTS video files in Windows Media Player... I wish I had found out about that a couple of months ago because it would have saved me from buying Cyberlink PowerDVD 8!
    Please someone help before I lose the plot.
    Thanks
    Patrick
    b PC: Intel Core i7 940 CPU, 6GB RAM, RADEON HD 4870 512MB, Vista 64 bit
    b Camera: Sony HDR SR12 producing .MTS files (footage in full 1920x1080i HD)

    Hi
    I'd just like to add an update to this post.
    b Summary:
    *K-Lite Codec Pack clashes with Sony's Picture Motion Browser (PMB) software
    *Analysis of video in Sony's PMB is well worth doing!
    *You can Drag and Drop clips from Sony's PMB into PRE7
    b Detail:
    As you've probably gathered I have now settled on using Sony's Picture Motion Browser (PMB) to Catalog all my video. Sorry Adobe to talk about someone elses product but the Adobe Organizer just can't cope with AVCHD footage no matter how you manage to import it! It's far too sluggish and my PC has an Intel Core i7 940 CPU with 6GB RAM and a 10,000 RPM HDD!
    Anyway, in my first post you'll have read me raving about the K-Lite Codec Pack but sadly I've had to uninstall it because it kept on causing PMB to crash. PMB runs much smoother and quicker WITHOUT that codec pack. Something about it clashed with PMB. The once agile PMB became sluggish and unresponsive.
    Having now removed the codec pack PMB is back to being agile and generaly lovely.
    To view AVCHD footage outside of PMB I have reverted to using Cyberlink's PowerDVD 8 - there's always a pregnant pause between double-clicking on the clip and it playing but that's the only drawback.
    If you are going to use Sony's PMB for cataloging your video collection (and I recommend you do so BUT only if you have AVCHD footage - otherwise stick to Adobe's Organiser) then I can fully recommend "Analyzing" all of your footage. This takes time and a bit of patience because it kept stopping for no apparent reason but would readily start up again (without having to do anything else) BUT once it's done it'll reward you with the following:
    *Filter on any combination of Scenery, People, Smiles - e.g. with a click of a button you can isolate footage that contains smiles, etc
    *Face Search - if you select some or all of the footage in the right-hand pane it will then put a small thumbnail for all of the different faces in that selected footage in the bottom "Face Search" pane. If you then click on one of those thumbnails it will jump to the clip(s) that contain that face and grey out all the other clips
    *Expand Videos - This tool is brilliant! In normal viewing mode you get a thumbnail of the video whether you're in Folder view, Calender view or Detail List view. If, however, you select "Expand Videos" from the tool bar it will show you a series of frames contained within that clip. You can choose from "Highlights" or various regular intervals (5 secs, 10 sec, 30 sec, 1 min, etc). The Highlights option does a pretty good job of picking out the significant changes within the clip
    Lastly, I have discovered that you can drag a clip from Sony's PMB into PRE7. It won't let you put it directly onto the Timeline but it will let you drop it into the Project file list (found under the Edit tab).
    I do hope that this info has helped others like me who are trying to get to grips with editing and cataloging AVCHD footage.

  • No sound on Sony video files in Lightroom 4

    Hello. I can see my mts video files in Lightroom 4, but however they do not have sound. Is there anything that I could do to have the sound? (The sound is working for videos that I made with my Nikon 3100 camera, but not for the videos that I made with my Sony camera.) Also, is there a way to light the video files from Lightroom 4 to Adobe Premiere, as Adobe Premiere seems to have more editing capabilities and plays the sound from my Sony videos?

    So, my understanding is that Lightroom does not support the codec used by Sony. Is there any plan in supporting it in the future?
    Thanks,Nancy
