Why use AVCHD Editor?

Post by Claire »

Reasons to use:
-Create and build your personalized AVCHD stucture. AVCHD Editor lets you edit and chose what parts from the whole structure you want to use in your final resulting project, like when you have an AVCHD camcorder coming from Sony, Panasonic, some Samsungs
- create a personal copy of blu-ray movie (with the help of AnyDVD) 1:1 with an AVCHD output structure, working well on USB key
- capable of removing all contents from a blu ray movie except the "Main movie", in other words capable of copying only the main movie

Input formats
- avchd/blu-ray root files (index.bdmv, index.bdm, movieObject.bdmv, or movieObj.bdm)
- playlist files (playlist.mpls or playlist.mpl)
- clip information file (*.clpi,*.clp)
- .mts or m2ts only if it has its corresponding clip information file

Output Formats
- AVCHD short format
- AVCHD long format
- Blu-Ray compliant

Key Features
- drag + drop
- edit playing order of files
- custom chapter editing
- different interface modes (easy, advanced, pro)
- - easy
- - advanced: detailed info on every file
- - pro: remove unwanted streams

Not all players are capable of reading each of these formats. For example one Blu-Ray player may only be able to read the AVCHD short format, and not the AVCHD long format nor the Blu-ray compliant format. Of our tests done on 7 players, on each player at least one format was able to be read. So you may have to try different formats to see which one(s) are supported by your player.

*Sony + Panasonic read the AVCHD short format no problem (they were the creators of this format :))

To be able to use some thing you have produced with aVCHD Editor you will need to have one of the following types of players:
- Playstation 3
- Blu-ray player
- Some high end DVD players (with the mention of AVCHD compatibility in the manual)
- Some high end media centers (such as PopCorn)

No burning engine will be included in this free version, but CopyToDVD can burn the AVCHD structure on a DVD or a Blu-ray disk. (CopyToDVD has a 21 day free trial period)
