AVCHD video files


Recommended Posts



I have been using Videopad Editor V2.20 for some time and it's been great for .MOV and .AVI files. But now I've bought a Panasonic HD video camera and the only file output I can generate is AVCHD.


I have upgraded my PC to be able to work with HD files but does anyone know how to work with AVCHD files?. Do I need to convert them to another format? If need be I'll upgrade to Videopad Editor V2.41.

I am using VP version 4.21 and the clips from my camera are H.246/MPEG-4 AVC. Full HD 1920 x 1080p 60 fps video. These are similar to your AVCHD files.


MPEG4 files will load,play and be can edited in VP. However you need a reasonably powerful system to play and edit them without seeing the video lagging behind the sound which has been my experience. Because of this. I convert all my MPEG4 to MPEG2 and thse edit with no problems.


Try converting your raw files and see if there is any difference.
