Summary: Can't import 3D AVCHD footage into Avid Media Composer? Can’t play or edit 3D MTS videos smoothly in Avid Media Composer 6.5/7? Keep reading for a brief how-to.
What's your editing program for handling and editing 3D AVCHD MTS? I use Mac and prefer the new Avid Media Composer 7, but importing 3D MTS to Premiere Pro is not so easy as I thought. In fact, there are many users who shoot with Sony TD10, DEV-5, Sony DSC-WX30, JVC GY-HMZ1U, Panasonic AG-3DA1 or other 3D camcorders are facing the frustrating issue. Thus, the big concern is the 3D AVCHD and Avid Media Composer compatibility.
According to our experience and other user's feedback, the recent version Avid Media Composer 6.5 or Avid MC 7still cannot support 3D AVCHD well. Even if the MC can recognize your 3D footage, it can’t show the whole images correctly in the timeline (As you know, the 3D camcorder happens to have two lenses next to each other and the two images are recorded to the single storage media.). To solve the problem, the best way is to convert 3D MTS files to DNxHD mov, ensuring maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with Avid MC. For this purpose, this article will outline how to convert 3D MTS files to edit in Avid 6.5/7.
