Burn TX10 AVCHD Files to DVD on Mac with Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac and iDVD

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX10, with the 16.2 megapixel "Exmor R" CMOS image sensor, is the waterproof, dustproof compact camera. It is easy to shoot live life in HD video and even 3D still image with TX10. To shoot HD videos, the files could be saved as AVCHD at1920x1080/60i with 24Mbps (FX) or 17Mbps (FH).

However, the Sony Picture Motion Browser is only for Windows, and iDVD does not support this kind of file format for burning AVCHD to DVD disc. If you would like to merge the MTS files and burn to DVD-Video disc for watching on TV, a Mac AVCHD Joiner/Converter is needed. Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac is the first choice for you to make AVCHD compatible to iDVD for DVD player.

Below is the quick guide for you to join Sony AVCHD files and burn to DVD disc on Mac without Picture Motion Browser.

Step 1. Import Sony TX10 MTS files to Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac.
You can capture videos from camcorder to Mac, or import videos from external hard drive. To capture videos from camcorder, just connect the HDcam to iMac/MacBook Pro via USB cable, and the Mac Sony AVCHD files joiner will pop up with camcorder wizard for you to choose mts files directly. To import videos from hard drive, just click the Add Path button and browse the folder with .mts files listed.

Step 2. Join Sony MTS files into one movie.
Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac supports two kinds of joining processes: one for lossless output, and the other for conversion. Here we need to convert MTS to MOV, so just click the drop-down button of the "Create a New Movie" button, choose "For Conversion". Then drag and drop the files from camcorder tab or resource tab to the new movie ID to merge and combine the clips.

Step 3. Export the merged AVCHD files to QuickTime movie for iDVD.
Click the "Export" button, and go to the "Common Formats" button. Choose HD Video > H.2264 HD Video(*.mov) as output format. Then click OK button to start merging/combining AVCHD file to MOV.

Step 4. Burn Sony TX10 video to DVD with iDVD.
After joining the TX10 video clips into one file, just run iDVD, create a project and import the output movie for burning to DVD disc.

When the processing is finished, the DVD disc could be viewed on standalone DVD player. Hope you enjoy burning Sony TX10 AVCHD files to DVD on Mac with Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac and iDVD.

For other cameras or camcorders like Sony DSC-TX100/TX100V, DSC-WX10, HDR-XR160, VG10 and CX700, you can refer to the Aunsoft Sony Camcorder Column.

The Apple Intermediate Codec (AIC) is a video codec designed by Apple, Inc to be an intermediate format in an HDV workflow. It features high performance and quality, being less processor intensive to work with than other editing formats.

Stream AVCHD MTS/M2TS to Networked Media Player PCH C-200 smoothly
Fix sequential playback pause between MTS files on Popcorn Hour C200
Mac AVCHD Joiner for Network Media Player with Lossless MTS Output

If you copy the AVCHD folder from HD camcorder to the external hard drive, you may notice that there is delay/pause between the playback of each file on HDTV while streaming .through Popcorn Hour C-200. It is the re-initialization pauses between each clip, and it even happens to most network media players like HDI Dune, Xtreamer Pro, AC Ryan PlayOn, TVIX,PS3 and so on.

To fix sequential playback pause between MTS files on Popcorn Hour C200, or say other media players, one of the solutions is to stitch/join the files together on PC or Mac. Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac (Windows users: Aunsoft Final Mate) is the perfect AVCHD video management software with lossless MTS support, keeping original quality.

Below is the quick guide for you to join and cut AVCHD files with Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac

Step 1. Import AVCHD footage to Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac.
Two ways to import AVCHD clips, from camcorder or from computer hard drive. When camcorder is connected to iMac/Macbook via USB cable, Final Mate for Mac will pop up a wizard and present the .mts or .m2ts files to you for selective download to the Camcorder tab. For files from computer, just go to the Resource tab and click the Add file path button to browse the folder with .mts or .m2ts files.

Step 2. Use lossless editing.
You can join and cut MTS files without re-encoding. Just select multiple files from the Camcorder tab or the Resource tab, drag and drop to timeline to create a single movie with several clips. Then the Mac AVCHD joiner for network media player will merge mts files into one file.

To cut MTS file, just click the Split button (the scissors icon) above the timeline, and the clip will be divided into two parts. Select the part you do not want to keep, and click the Delete button (the cross icon) to remove unwanted segment.

Step 3. Export MTS movie without any loss in quality.
Click the "Export" button, and then the OK button. The Mac lossless MTS joiner for PCH C-200 will start merging the mts files for playback on network media player with less second pause.

After a few seconds, you can store the video on your home server, NAS or external hard drive, and then Stream AVCHD MTS/M2TS to Networked Media Player Smoothly.
