I must say the most recent two topics
Left me dazed and confused. I know many here use Sony, After Effects and other very costly programs, and I had assumed they all did what mine does. But I seem to have been mistaken.
I got my start using VideoStudio 11.5, then to X3, X4, and now X5, always the Ultimate versions. (there was no X2). It was VSX4 that came out with full AVCHD, BD and mt2s, as well every format support. X5 now picks up the rest, HTML5. When X4 was first released it was the only NLE for a few months that supported mt2s format. In fact Adobe released a rushed version to catch up. So for a while only 2 NLE's supported AVCHD, mt2s, and BD. So I took it for granted that the big guns were fully on board by now. But I suppose I am wrong?
So to clear this up. VideoStudio X5 U, Does in fact support, AVCHD, mt2s, BD, HTML5, and every other codec. It will also convert AVCHD (mt2s) on the fly to ANY other format, (it may take time with larger files that what night time is for). But it sounds like these costly programs are not keeping pace with VSX5, and the new VSX5 has all the NewBlue Effects, ProDAD, Boris, 500 music tracks mixes, title effects and transitions and ready made (insert your own persona info) task. So I guess i did good by staying with VideoStudio, what I have I thought was the lower end of the pool, I guess I am a better swimmer then I thought. (he turns and pats self on back)
