I'd be surprised if it were possible to write AVCHD camera-compliant files. Typically such things end up on Blu-ray.
typically camera writes AVCHD onto usual HD drive on the fly!
Blu ray is not ready yet(as a format) I can walk with Blu Ray disk from house to house, and only some people can say "give me this I watch it a bit".
And there is still same problem waiting - 2 years later disks will produce "redundance cyclic error (orsmth) or some kinds of "-1".
They are not for producer, just for throw them out to see on recycle.
Sony PMB can write back m2ts files to camera, some people were joined multiple files to single m2ts, there must be way to write edited m2ts!
Use nero Vision(nero 8 ultra and above i think). It can write to .m2ts.
And here is my concern :P I'd like to make project in Premiere Pro and then make export on final movie on m2ts.
I check out Nero and see, maybe it render HD movies to m2ts?
Camera is the wrong ttool for the purpose you intend even if you can get it to work.
Get a simple playback device and use a different encode/workflow/media. eg a portable DVD player or a laptop.
Thats hangs on personal habits, too :(
I used many years DV camera to carry my finished movies, easy way was just carry some AV cable and I used to travel around different classrooms.
(and if my external HD failed, and my old DVD-s made this "cyclic"-thing - I was able to recover my 10 years works from DV-tapes.HD still sucks :D )
Laptop output is not good resolution enough, some places include HD TV sets, but no Blu Ray players.
On travel there are usually my camera with me, but not laptop... just too many things to carry.
I do some tests with Nero.
But still - m2ts can be edited natively on CS4 timeline, but no way to keep it that way rendered :)
Be careful. You might end up switching to Nero after finding out it smart renders avchd
and doesn't crash.
There are lot of people looking solutions for that.
One response(http://www.sonyhdvinfo.com/showthread.php?t=10888) was:
The recently released Vegas Pro 8 does accomodate rendering back into .m2t & .m2ts formats. I just did a test video, exported it back into my HDR-SR1 and played it on my LCD TV via HDMI with the original AVCHD picture quality.-end quota
:) thanks for warning, oyrtek :P And punch of people also complaining about Nero 8 and up - (horrible, ugly-these are only some words they use , lol.Propably they looking only DVD writing software inside it, but as i understand, Nero is much more now) Downloading trial, also checking what Vegas does.
If somebody interested results I post success-unsucess here. It will take propably 4 days at least.
>some places include HD TV sets, but no Blu Ray players.
Well now that's just silly.
Blu ray is not yet main HD source. Sorry, but still true.
And I look somebody who is interested to solve same problem. There are many problems there what looks silly, but this is usually not my problem then :) so I do not go to make post there.
>Blu ray is not yet main HD source.
For packaged media, it is. And that's essentially what you're trying to create here. A portable HD video source. For that, Blu-ray really is the standard.
What I meant by silly is that it just seems off-balanced to me for someone to buy an HDTV and not also buy a Blu-ray. The exception to that is if the purchaser has no plans to watch any type of packaged media, using it strictly for cable or satellite, for instance. But pairing an HDTV with DVD just seems a little off. That's like a live TV show getting a composite feed from their HD cameras. What's the point in investing in HD cameras if you going to do that?
Propably You are right. But I live in the place where analog TV is ending soon and nobody (except PS3 people) do not even think yet about Blue Ray palyers. Not enough movies on them. But TV s which are paired with digibox are pretty common already.
And I still are old fashioned and do not see need to buy Blue Ray writer and player (at least yet)
But I am also stuck to HD already and want keep all my created stuff as high and compact mode as possible...
Im looking, maybe Im on wrong way, but I need to walk it through.
(and just right now and looking forward some years only way to show stuff in HD is through camera :( )
