Recently I went on the cheap and bought a Canon camcorder that saves its files as a .mts
After transferring it to my computer, Adobe CS5 doesn't take it.
Am I missing a step?
I was hoping to get something camera wise that could just record, allow me to put those files onto my computer and go to work with...
Any help would be appreciated.
Well, EXACTLY what model Canon?
I have a Canon Vixia HFS100 and the MTS files work perfectly
My CS5/AVCHD 1st Impressions http://forums.adobe.com/thread/652694?tstart=0 includes a link to the computer I built... since the GTX 285 is no longer sold, I would now go with a GTX 470
For my home hobbyist, family movies (which means that I am not trying to recreate Star Wars with video effects or many layers) AVCHD editing is "as smooth as spreading warm butter on hot toast" (also the MP4 video from wife's Flip camera)
My 3 hard drives are configured as...
1 - 320G WD Win7 and all programs
2 - 320G WD Win7 swap file and PPro projects
3 - 1T WD all video files... read and write
