How to Stitch AVCHD Scenes:
Our typical AVCHD video editing experience
We recently bought an AVCHD video camcorder(Sony Canon Panasonic). This camera records on an inner hard disk in AVCHD format.
The camera is fantastic, and viewing the recorded result through the HDMI cable gives great results.
The challenges begin when you want to start editing. As the AVCHD standard for video editing is relatively complex, not all popular video editing programs have good support for it.
Most new versions are today capable of importing the format though, possibly converting it.
But you may meet instability when editing AVCHD, and also a significant impact on your systems performance, resulting in a hard editing experience.
The typical video editing workflow is as follows:
After a series of recordings around a certain theme you’d like to review the unedited material.
In order to do so you may want to import the clips, stitch them together and copy the file on my PC for viewing with any software video player. Without having to connect the camera to the TV.
Sounds simple right?
Well it is not. In the HD format (AVCHD), every scene is a separate file, with the right codec on your system you can perfectly play back that clip. But a clip is just a clip, not the entire movie.
Most video editor programs can import the clips, but in order to generate something viewable, you have to go through the entire conversion/rendering process. Which is extremely time consuming and not worth the trouble for just a quick review of the unedited material.
The basic software tools bundled together with the camera don’t do this. This simple requirement is supposed to be able to stitch AVCHD clips (with the MTS extension) together without re-rendering the video. Exactly how you want it, you may find that the bundled free tool failed to easily do the job. (at least not easier than simply connecting the cam to the TV.
