I have a video editing program that came with my camcorder (Panasonic HD Writer AE) that is able to manipulate files from my camcorder rather well (lossless trimming and appending, rendering only the transitions). Unfortunately, it accepts only AVCHD 1080i (or 1080p) video. I have a few videos from a digital camera that use a different codec and are 720p30 that I would like to add to the project.
how can I convert this:
to this:Code:Video ID : 1 Format : JPEG Codec ID : jpeg Duration : 18s 500ms Bit rate mode : Variable Bit rate : 25.6 Mbps Width : 1 280 pixels Height : 720 pixels Display aspect ratio : 16:9 Frame rate mode : Constant Frame rate : 30.000 fps Color space : YUV Chroma subsampling : 4:2:0 Bit depth : 8 bits Compression mode : Lossy Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 0.924 Stream size : 56.4 MiB (100%) Language : English Encoded date : UTC 2012-09-01 12:20:48 Tagged date : UTC 2012-09-01 12:20:48 Audio ID : 2 Format : PCM Format settings, Endianness : Little Format settings, Sign : Unsigned Codec ID : raw Duration : 18s 500ms Bit rate mode : Constant Bit rate : 64.0 Kbps Channel(s) : 1 channel Sampling rate : 8 000 Hz Bit depth : 8 bits Stream size : 145 KiB (0%) Language : English Encoded date : UTC 2012-09-01 12:20:48 Tagged date : UTC 2012-09-01 12:20:48
I'm comfortable with entering cryptic commands into ffmpeg, but this doesn't quite work (the output isn't interlaced):Code:Video ID : 4113 (0x1011) Menu ID : 1 (0x1) Format : AVC Format/Info : Advanced Video Codec Format profile : High@L4.0 Format settings, CABAC : Yes Format settings, ReFrames : 4 frames Format settings, GOP : M=3, N=15 Codec ID : 27 Duration : 23s 957ms Bit rate mode : Variable Bit rate : 11.8 Mbps Maximum bit rate : 16.8 Mbps Width : 1 920 pixels Height : 1 080 pixels Display aspect ratio : 16:9 Frame rate : 29.970 fps Color space : YUV Chroma subsampling : 4:2:0 Bit depth : 8 bits Scan type : Interlaced Scan order : Top Field First Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 0.189 Stream size : 33.6 MiB (94%) Audio ID : 4352 (0x1100) Menu ID : 1 (0x1) Format : AC-3 Format/Info : Audio Coding 3 Mode extension : CM (complete main) Format settings, Endianness : Big Codec ID : 129 Duration : 24s 32ms Bit rate mode : Constant Bit rate : 256 Kbps Channel(s) : 2 channels Channel positions : Front: L R Sampling rate : 48.0 KHz Bit depth : 16 bits Compression mode : Lossy Delay relative to video : -67ms Stream size : 751 KiB (2%)
Any other utilities I can try? Ideally if they'd also generate the corresponding .cont, .pmpd and .tmb files .Code:$ ./ffmpeg.exe -i camera.mov -codec:a ac3 -codec:v h264 -s 1920x1080 -vf tinterlace output.m2ts

AVCHDCoder - I couldn't get it to recognize the audio tracks (and it refused to proceed further). I tried transcoding to an intermediate format, and still no luck... (maybe I just picked the wrong formats)
multiAVCHD - really nice program I'll keep in mind when I make BluRay discs, but unfortunately the discs it makes can't be imported into Panasonic HD Writer AE 4.0. It might be that Panasonic Writer recognizes only discs it made itself (to avoid editing commercial movies or something).
MPEG StreamClip - maybe I misread, but I didn't find a way to convert from mov to m2ts
Thank you for all the suggestions, but it appears that Panasonic Writer is really picky with what it accepts and short of filming my screen there is no way to get external videos in there. I will decide how badly I want this external footage and maybe switch to a different editing program.
