Edit Canon C100 AVCHD MTS in Cyberlink PowerDirector in Full HD

The following steps will guide you through the process of using Canon C100 AVCHD MTS video in your PowerDirector project.

"Some google searching shows that i'm not alone with this problem, but i haven't found a solution .MTS files plays in PowerDirector (lagging terribly though) , where i get this error message "The selected files can not be played because your system does not have the required compresser/decompresser (codec) installed" Does the problems lie on codec?"

If you are old version user, the MTS editing process will not be smooth in Cyberlink PowerDirector owing to codec problem and computer configuration. Luckily, there is an easy workaround to fix the problem. You just need to convert Canon C100 MTS/M2TS to MPEG-2, which is the most compatible format for PowerDirector.

To finish the task, you can get help from Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter. It is a highly-recommended video converting tool for you to convert C100 MTS files to PowerDirector compatible format without loosing quality.

I am very impressed with this product. The conversion speed is on par with other products I have tried. The quality is great. I haven't encountered any instances of stuttering or skipping, even on files that I had "pause" and "restart" during the conversion process. I have found the most use out of customizing my output formats.
