My video camera (Canon HF100) writes files to an SDHC card with the file suffix MTS. I successfully import and edit these files in Elements.
I now wish to export the edited file back to the SDHC in an HD format (thus retaining the quality) and use my camera to play them back on my TV.
How do I do this please.
This may not be possible -- but, if it is, you'll want to:
1) Select your project timeline and then go to File/Export/Movie.
2) Before you save the file, click Settings.
3) On the General screen, select Quicktime as the File Type.
4) On Video screen, select H.264 (or possibley MPEG4) as the Compressor.
This will produce a hi-def file that uses the H.264 codec.
However, I can't guarantee that your camcorder can play the file, once you move it to your SD card. Recording AVCHD back to an SD card is just not something this program is designed to do!
