Unfortunately I do not have any experience with PS-4. Nor with PRE9.
1a) Yes E9 can make an avchd disk but if its compatible I don't know. You will have to experiment.
1b) E13 has issues with burning BD disk, so I am guessing an AVCHD disk will also give problems.
2) Export to mp4 would be the prevered route if the carrier is a flash drive or media player.
3) AVCHD is a format developed by Sony and Panasonic. Its is a format used in video camera's (mts and m2ts). This format is compatible with Bluray (like an AVCHD-disk which is in fact a Bluray video burned on a DVD-disk. AVCHD (mts/m2ts)does not need to be converted to burn to Bluray, but other formats do.
AVCHD also uses the H.264 codec, but so do other formats like mp4 and mov.
Hope this makes sence.
Hello Ann and Everyone,Nice to meet you.Thanks for your answer. I appreciate.1) I am familiar with DVD/MPEG-2. However as I am new to H.264 and AVCHD (and learned that the later is a variant, see below, please feel free to state if that is not so) which variant is the one PRE 13 makes?
"AVCHD Sony and Panasonic took the parts they liked about H.264 and called it AVCHD (MPEG-4 Part 10 AVC+HD). The key differences between AVCHD and H.264 is the former supports Dolby AC-3 encoding in addition to LPCM, and is limited by a total bit rate of 24 Mbps."2) You touch upon the PRE 13 problem regarding burning ISO!That is bad news, of course.- Are there some work-arounds to solve this? What are the alternatives?- Can you still burn directly to disc or to folder in PRE 13? If so, do they work okay?Thanks again for your previous answers.---Let is see if we have some members here that have used the PRE 13 and PS4 combination in the OP (original post) which I am aiming at now.
