Pavtube Video Converter is an all-in-one video converter and editor tool based on NVIDIA CUDA technology which is specially developed for users to convert videos from one format to another.

Pavtube Video Converter has been designed to cover all your video conversion needs while providing you with a few interesting editing features. It supports nearly all known video formats and codecs for both standard and high-definition video, including MKV, AVI, MP4, M4V, VOB, MOV, WMV, Tivo, FLV, MPG, WebM, MVI, VRO, MTS, M2TS, M2T, TS, MXF, XAVC, along with audio extensions like MP3 and FLAC, etc. Batch processing is permitted.

In order to manage such a vast list of video, audio, and image file formats, the program offers you a somehow organized list of output profiles.

These are classified following different criteria, such as device manufacturer (Apple, Samsung, Google, Sony, HTC, Amazon, Asus, Microsoft, Acer, Nokia, LG, Panasonic, Toshiba, HuaWei, BlackBerry, Lenovo or HP, etc.), software tool (Windows or PowerPoint), media type (Common Video or Common Audio – for audio extraction purposes), or device (Zune, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii, Windows Media Player, VLC, AC Ryan Player, HiMedia 900B, PS4, PS3, WD TV Live Plus Media Player, Xtreamer Ultra, Dune HD Player, Seagate, Popcorn Hour, Asus O!Play Mini Plus, KDLINKS Media Player, ViewSonic NMP-708 and so on), although you can also find some more "exotic" categories, such as Remux, Interlaced, Lossless raw video, or DV. Useful as it may be, it doesn't seem to follow any logical order. To overcome this difficulty, the program offers you a Profile Manager, which you can use to select only those categories you really use. Likewise, you can also tick off those specific presets within each category that you know you won't be using often.

Once the output selection process has been conveniently simplified according to your preferences, you can select the video or video files you wish to convert and apply to all of them one of the many output formats provided (regrettably, multiple-output conversion is not supported). You can then select one of your videos and watch them on the program's built-in player, or simply move into the program's editor.

This simple editing tool offers you the possibility of trimming and cropping your videos, of adding text and image/video watermarks to them, editing their background audio, importing a subtitle stream from an SRT or SSA subtitle file, or applying one of the various video effects provided – gauss blur, Laplacian sharpen, aged film (a kind of sepia effect), negative, etc.

In addition, you can preview clips and take snapshots, apply effects, make image adjustments (e.g. brightness, contrast), replace the audio steam, and more.

But you can also make audio and video modifications when it comes to the codec, size, bit rate, frame rate, sample frequency rate, channels and others. Settings can be restored to their default values.

During the conversion job you can check out the progress for the current and total files, elapsed and remaining time, generated and estimated size, as well as a log file. Plus, you can pause the task and enable Pavtube Video Converter to automatically turn off the computer after conversion.

The conversion process itself is fairly fast (thanks to the program's multi-thread support) and doesn't take up much of your system's resources. An attractive and affordable option for those looking for fast and stress-free video conversion processes.

From memory card and Hard Drive, how could we import AVCHD MTS files to Final Cut Pro X?

Part 1. Some tips to make it smoother to get those .MTS files off of a memory card or hard drive – and without the need to connect the camera to your Mac.

Just for Premiere Pro CS5 or CS5.5's liberal file support, you know that it's easy to simply import an AVCHD .MTS file from any location by simply using the "Import…" dialog – or even just dropping the file into the Project window.

When working with AVCHD footage in FCP X, the key to importing .MTS files is to use the "Import from camera…" dialog and NOT the "Import…" dialog. This is true when using either a memory card or importing the footage from your hard drive.

Whenever I import media into a non-linear editor, I have already put it onto a hard drive (usually an external drive). When working with AVCHD footage and FCP X, it is important to copy the entire file structure to your hard drive. You don't want to just grab the .MTS files and put them in another folder for later work in FCP X.

Now, you can navigate to the folder containing your footage and choose the top level file folder. You can choose other folders down to the folder named "AVCHD" (going down to the "STREAM" folder won't work). If you want to only import some of the files, you can select your clips in and even selected portions of the clips and choose "Import Selected."

Unfortunately, troubles you will meet here: It is not so easily to import multiple sub-clips from a single clip. If you select a range (i.e., mark in/out points) within one clip, any attempt to select another range from that same clip (or any other clip, for that matter) will deselect the first range.

Part 2. Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac, which is a nice assistant can make up the shortage. (To get more coupons, you can view here.)

With the easy operation and strong function of supporting abundant files imported at the same time,**** it can handle all AVCHD files well. ****More typical features you can follow here or some conversion steps you can take a reference.-------- No matter for memory card or hard drive, you can smoothly import them into FCP X with this program. --------

MXF files cannot work with FCP? Don't worry about it! In the following page, you can get a fixer as a good assistant.As we all know that due to the video codec limitation, for the container format MXF, it is not so suitable with the FCP. So for our Mac users, how could we make it possible to smoothly import MXF files in FCP for a nice editing? Firstly, you can take the third-party plug-in as a try, or the second method could be your favorite. With a goos repuatation online, the program we introduced below can make you work MXF files well with Final Cut Pro X. Why not have a try?

Fixer One. Canon FCPX plug-in---Only for Canon users

Canon provide a free plug-in to enable the C300's MXF files to import directly into FCPX without the need to transcode to ProRes. Many users report that they have no problems with the installation and it 'just works'. However, other users with similar setups report that they cannot import C300 rushes in FCP X, though it works through Log and Capture in FCP7, additionally Adobe Premiere successfully imports C300 MXF. Only FCP X seems affected, and for a limted subset of FCP X users.

Here's the typical scenario: having run the xpfm211 installer. FCPX sees the folder structure, even the MXF files themselves, but does not recognise either. This is as far as some users get. For some reason, the installer has completed successfully, we are seeing files, but nothing imports. De-installing and re-installing brings the user back to this situation. Very frustrating.

Trying to track the activity of the installer, we see two new plug-ins highlighted in the MIO/RAD/Plugins folder – CanonE1.RADPlug and CanonXF.RADPlug. The latter would appear to be the 'magic smoke' for the MXF format. However, this isn't working. There's a second empty RADPlugins folder below – should the plugins be in there?

Here's where it got interesting. I was able to confer with another editor who had a system that did import MXF successfully. The key difference was that he had a CanonXF64.RADPlug folder – not an XF, an XF64. I could not find a similar folder, nor could I make the installer create one. In the end, he just sent me a copy of that folder, and I dragged and dropped it into the same folder I had.

And it worked! It's pretty obvious because you can see the clips, but also note that the MXF folder heirachy has gone, replaced simply with the usual list of clips on a card or archive.

Fixer Two. Pavtube MXF Converter for Mac/iMixMXF --- for other users
As a professional kind of MXF to FCP converter, this program has a good reputation on the Internet. ***With the easy operation, concise interface, various output choices, it can handle all the MXF files well in FCP.*** (to get more coupons, you can view here)

Tips: iMixMXF is a MXF converting tool that can output multiple audio tracks if you need. Especially for MXF file folder, it indeed has the unique function. (Learn more>>)

Follow my steps here, we can learn the main tips on how to make MXF converted to ProRes .mov for FCP with this MXF Converter for Mac. When you install it correctly on your computer, With 'Add video' you can load MXF files in this program. There are several types of ProRes Codec on the output list, 'Apple ProRes Codec 422 HQ (*.mov) can hold your quality well. Then in the 'Settings' item, we can set our personal video size, bitrates, frame rate or even audio channel, etc. (Learn Types of Apple ProRes Codecs)

Back to the main interface, hit the 'Convert' to start your conversion, Screen shot below can show you the more details. Any other advice and suggestion you can reflect to us.
