Hello ! smile

I have buy a Sony camera (reference : HDR-XR105E), which shot in HD (1920x1080i 50i PAL).
So I import my videos on my computer, in format .m2ts
But this format isn't support by EffectsLab Pro and CompositeLab Pro, how can I import video, whithout loose the quality (HD) ?

Thanks !

HD refers to the resolution, not the actual quality of the file. You just need to convert your files to another either .mov or .avi format, preferrably in some lossless codec which would be much, much better than .m2ts. You can probably manage this conversion from your video editor, without needing any additional software. What video editor are you using?

I use SUPER to convert my videos, and I have understand how to convert to .avi with the H-264 codec compression. but I have a problem : when I try to convert my .m2ts files, it tells me that 'an error has occurred' (I try with other movies, whiches not came from my camera, and it works fine...).

So I will try to fix this problem, I think that I have miss something when I import my films.

Thank you !


Edit : I have found a solution : I create a project with Adobe Premiere, I export the movie in .mp4 with the resolution I want, and then I convert it in .avi with Super.
