MTS to Sony Vegas Pro: Import AVCHD MTS/M2TS to Sony Vegas Pro 12

Summary: Can't import AVCHD MTS files to Sony Vegas Pro 12? The easy workaround is to transcode AVCHD to Sony Vegas best editing MPEG-2 format. Here is how.

Hi, I'm new on the boards. I'd like to know the best way to transcode MTS files to ProRes to edit in Sony Vegas Pro 12? I've always used ClipWrap to convert them for Premiere, but for some reason, Vegas doesn't seem to play nice with this software unless I convert in ClipWrap first, then re-convert using MPEG Streamclip. Any way I can cut down the steps and only do it once (something other than natively editing the MTS file)?


If you are using Sony Vegas Pro 12 to perform further editing, you will find the program does not work well with the 1920x1080x60p AVCHD MTS files from your Canon, Panasonic, Sony camera or camcorders. Although Sony Vegas announced that it was compatible with MTS files since Vegas Pro 8 version on its official site, the incompatibility issues occurred from time to time. To get you easily and natively editing AVCHD videos in Sony Vegas Pro 12, I will offer the way to fix the problem in this article.

Due to video codec, frame rate, bitrate of the raw AVCHD recordings and even the computer configuration, Sony Vegas Pro can't fully support the 1080 60p AVCHD 2.0 all the time. So an easy solution is to convert these files to Vegas compatible formats like WMV, MPG, MOV first.

To get the work done, Pavtube Video Converter is highly recommended, which provides optimized presets MPEG-2, WMV for Sony Vegas Pro. The program is specially designed for Sony, Canon, JVC and Panasonic AVCHD Camcorder/camera owners to convert MTS/3D MTSto any file format with excellent audio and image quality for using in video editing software and multimedia devices including Sony Vegas Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, iMovie, etc.


Download the tool and follow the step-by-step guide to import and load AVCHD MTS/M2TS files into Sony Vegas Pro for editing.

Step 1: Download and install this converter.
Copy the .mts files to your computer. Launch the MTS to Sony Vegas Converter, and you may either click "Add Video" or "Add from folder" button to import .mts files, or directly drag and drop the files into this program.

Step 2: Select Sony Vegas 12 compatible format
Get the dropdown menu of "Format" and then move your pointer to "Adobe Premiere Pro/Sony Vegas to choose "MPEG-2 (*.mpg) as the output format from the profile list which is the Sony Vegas Pro compatible video format.

Tip:You can adjust the video and audio parameters, including the Bitrate of Video & Audio, Video Size, Frame Rate, Audio Channels, etc., by clicking the Settings button on the main interface.

Step 3: Start conversion
Click the convert button, the AVCHD converter will start encoding AVCHD .mts/m2ts files to Sony Vegas Pro immediately. Then just transfer the files to Sony Vegas as usual, we can nicely enjoy them freely.


After the files are converted, tap the Open button to locate the converted files and bring them into your Vegas Pro with best audio and video quality, edit, export or share. This converter can convert very fast and support for editing applications like Avid MC, Premiere, Pinnacle, Windows Movie Maker etc.
