Please look at the audio situation
a. With and without the following Edit Menu/Preference/General preference disabled
"Use Hardware Acceleration (works on Intel HD Graphics 2000 and higher)"
b. With the lower bitrate
Please let us know the outcome.
Do you have a special requirement for the m2t rather than the mp4 file?
I tried various combinations of Hardware Acceleration on/off and lower bitrate of 160 to no avail. Audio still stutters to the point of being unusable.
My requirement is to be able to burn this video to blu-ray discs. I thought that M2T was preferred for blu-ray burning and also archiving project output? Is MP4 just as good for this purpose?
Bumping this up a bit.
Still having the the issue mentioned in the original post. It appears that PowerDIrector can handle something better here than PE when it comes to smoother export to AVCHD. That's a shame, as I really like everything else about PE.
I'll post the latter question again:
"My requirement is to be able to burn this video to blu-ray discs. I thought that M2T was preferred for blu-ray burning and also archiving project output? Is MP4 just as good for this purpose?"
I am not very versed in the creation of blu-ray discs. Can MP4 be used to produce a blu-ray and will the quality be as good as if AVCHD is used? Please excuse my being green. Still learning.
Thanks for bringing your thread to attention.

I would say go with the AVCHD.mp4
But consider you can take your Timeline to Blu-ray disc format on Blu-ray disc using
and have a choice of Presets
H.264 1440 x 1080i NTSC Dolby
H.264 1440 x 1080i PAL Dolby
H.264 1440 x 1080p NTSC Dolby NEW
H.264 1920 x 1080i NTSC Dolby
H.264 1920 x 1080i PAL Dolby
H.264 1920 x 1080p NTSC Dolby NEW
The 1080p ones have frame rate of 23.97 progressive frames per second. The 1080i have are either
25 interlaced frames per second or 29.97 interlaced frames per second depending on NTSC or PAL.
If you want to export to file saved to the computer hard drive, a good choice in your case for a later burn to Blu-ray disc format on Blu-ray disc
with Presets = MP4 H.264 1920 x 1080p30
You cannot customize the burn to presets. But, you can customize the preset for the export to file saved to the computer hard drive.
But, those settings will be overwritten in the encoding process in the burn to process to give you the format cited above.
Please let us know if that targets your question.
