Summary: Get stuck in troubles when importing and editing Panasonic AG-AF100 MTS files in Premiere Pro? If so, try the best MTS converter app to make MTS clips from Panasonic AF100 compatible with Premiere Pro(CC/CS6/CS5/CS4).
I have a Panasonic AG-AF100, which is wonderful to be taken to record full HD videos(AVCHD) when I’m travelling. Whereas, when I wanna import those MTS footage from Panasonic AF100 to Premiere Pro for editing before sharing with my friends, I met problems: the Adobe PP hands with the MTS files so slowly, and I couldn’t edit my videos smoothly.
Searched Panasonic AG-AF100 and Premiere Pro on Google, and found the other users are also facing the importing problems. Some guys point that it’s due to the limitations of AVCHD v2. AVCHD is a delivery codec rather than editing codec… Since Adobe Premiere can’t support MTS format well, if you stick with the AVCHD(MTS/M2TS) files from Panasonic AG-AF100, you need to seek for a workaround. The best method to solve those problems I’ve worked out is to transcode Panasonic AG-AF100 .mts to Adobe Premiere Pro most compatible format MPEG-2 with UFUWare AVCHD Converter for Mac.
