"I downloaded a client's .mts files off their Panasonic HD disk camera thinking that I could easily convert them to something easily read by FCP. As this is going onto SD DVD, the workflow is to downconvert all the rushes to work in DV-PAL Widescreen format. I have tried Voltaic, but I am not getting smooth movements. Procoder on the PC is ok, but whenever a red/orange colour comes on screen, other colours start 'pulsing' like a hunting auto white balance. (This is not on the original files so not a camera issue). The client has taken the camera off to the other side of the world now so I can't play out via component, which is what I should have done in the first place. Can anyone advise on the next course of action? Thanks." from forums.creativecow AVCHD is a highly compressed video format and often recorded by Camcorder like JVC GZHM400, Sony HDR-SR10E and Canon Power-Shot ELPH 300 HS, Canon VIXIA HFS10, Sony Cyber-Shot, Panasonic AG-HM, Panasonic Lumix etc in AVCHD (MTS, M2TS,TS) format.
