- May 7, 2013 at 11:56 AM #59674AlexianMemberThere are plenty of video format converters out there but all the ones I've checked out either reduce the quality, are excessively slow or have so many "bells and whistles" in which I have no interest whatsoever. Some are even blocked from downloading by my anti-virus software.I looking for a simple single conversion program that does one thing only; convert MTS files to AVI.First prize would be if the individual clips could be converted in batch mode. Of course itcan be done in Sony Vegas pro but that's cumbersome. You will ask why convert when my editor does the job. This for other people's use who cannot read the MTS files.
Handbrake is excellent, but it doesn't create AVI files. I have already given my recommendation here, but my post was deleted…
You actually have many options available here and will likely have more trouble deciding which is best solution that works. Personally, I always use AppGeeker video converter, it can minimize the loss of video quality, and you can tweak the output setting for a specific need. At least, i am satify with its output result.
