How to Import, Merge and Edit CamRec MTS/M2TS Videos in Camtasia Studio
"Hello, I recorded some videos on my sony HD camera and wanted to cut together a highlight video using Camtasia 8.0. The camera saved the files as *.m2ts which Camtasia doesn't seem to be able to read. There is an option to convert the M2TS to WMV or MPEG-2. Now I can import the *.wmv media but it only saves in 640x480 instead of 1080i which is what I want. The MPEG-2 is the file that gets the codec Error. Is there anything I can do to get the M2TS video file worked with Camtasia or are they just both incompatible?"
We may choose the generally used Camtasia Studio (7, 8) to merge, split, trim, crop, edit and create videos. When we want to edit our HD camcorder recorded videos in the file extensions of M2TS or M2TS through Camtasia, it fails. Why? Because Camtasia and many other video editing programs do not support MTS/M2TS format as the input. What are we supposed to do then? It is necessary to convert MTS/M2TS to Camtasia compatible video formats with HD video converter software.
Video Formats Supported by Camtasia
Camtasia supports AVI, .WMV, MPEG-1, .MP3, .WAV, .WMA, and .MOV (QuickTime) files. It does not support AVCHD files (.m2ts, .mts, and .m2t), Video_TS, MPEG-2, MOD, Ogg, WebM, .RM (RealPlayer), .FLV (Flash Video), 3GPP, and SWF created outside Techsmith products. It means that those videos incompatible cannot be imported to Camtasia Studio directly and must be converted or re-recorded.
How to Import CamRec MTS/M2TS Videos into Camtasia
In order to make a highlight video out of camera recorded M2TS/MTS/MOD/TOD video files, we have to turn to a HD video converter or codec for help. Here we recommend WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe which is not only able to convert M2TS/MTS to Camtasia videos, but also edit all kinds of videos. Therefore, you have two options to edit HD-camera recorded videos.
Option 1: Convert MTS to Camtasia Studio
Your first choice is to convert Camcorder recorded .mts video files so that they can be recognized by Camtasia Studio. WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe can convert MTS M2TS to MP4, AVI, WMV, MPEG, MOV video formats and MP3, WAV, WMA audio formats and more. After that, video film titles and other audio video effects can be added into the file.
Convert MTS to Camtasia Studio Supported Video
Tip: WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe can also convert M2TS videos to iPhone 6s/6, iPad Mini (2/3/4), iPad Air (2/3), iPad Pro, Android, Windows Phone, Xbox, PSP and so on.
Option 2: Find a Camtasia Alternative to Import/Edit/Merge MTS/M2TS Videos
Since Camtasia Studio is deadly against videos recorded by Canon, Sony, JVC and Panasonic camcorders, either in AVCHD, MTS, M2TS, or MOD/TDO, many people are heading over to an alternative video editing and sharing software that accepts such MTS videos, such as Microsoft's Movie Maker. It is a wise choice. However, Windows Movie Maker actually is NOT perfectly compatible with M2TS and MTS video formats.
Various M2TS Video Editing Features
We strongly recommend WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe, because it is not only HD video converting software with 370+ video/audio codecs, but also video editing and creating software. It will help you cut off videos to create clips, crop/expand video edges, merge multiple video files to cut together a highlight video, and even add external AAS/SRT subtitles to videos.
Edit M2TS Videos with Camtasia Alternative
Besides converting MTS/M2TS videos, this HD video converter and editor also can convert videos from Microsoft Recorded TV Show files (.wtv), HD MKV, Blu-ray M2TS, AVCHD, AVI, FLV, ASF, 3GP, 3G2, QT, DivX, Xvid, Google TV, WebM and VPX 8 videos that are not supported by Camtasia Studio. Almost all kinds of videos can be converted and edited by WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe.
