Oposoft AVCHD Converter can convert AVCHD video to a wide range of other formats. AVCHD ((Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is extensively used for digital recording and playback of high definition video. Although it has several advantages, like embedded menu navigation, slideshows and subtitles, it is not compatible with many devices.
Therefore, AVCHD files (MTS and M2TS) need frequent conversion to other supported formats.
The program has an intuitive interface typical for batch converters. Though its name may serve to publicize it as an AVCHD converter, it actually supports practically every popular video format as input. Besides adding individual files, you can also import full folders. However, other sources such as discs and downloaded video are not supported. In case the imported video contains various subtitles or audio tracks, the program allows you to select one of them. Yet, it is too bad it does not let you import subtitles from external files. The contents of the files can be previewed and snapshots of your favorite scenes can be taken.
Various editing actions can be carried out. Thus, you can trim the video to extract a segment or crop the visible region of the frame. Additionally, the image can be rotated or flipped, and picture parameters can be adjusted to your needs. Perhaps I should also tell you to notice a small checkbox you can activate when you want to merge all the files on the list.
A surprising number of output profiles is available. They are classified according to file type and supporting devices. Therefore, it is not difficult to set the output parameters in such a way that no compatibility issues will arise during playback. The profiles can be customized to meet your exact needs, but these changes cannot be used to create new presets. Unfortunately, all the source files in a work session will be converted to the same output format.
In general, Oposoft AVCHD Converter is actually a general-purpose video converter, because it supports a wide range of both source and target formats. It has the advantage of supporting AVCHD, a format that is not usually supported by other converters. Although limited, its authoring features may be enough for simple video editing.
