    "Trial worthless - Doesn't include AVCHD MTS editing"

    August 14, 2012  |   By happyfirst


    None - I couldn't test the software


    Doesn't allow editting MTS files in trial version


    I wanted to start editing the footage from our camera that can take HD video. AVCHD. It saves them in an .MTS format. I downloaded a bunch of products to evaluate to a test PC. As I feared, this company uses yet another custom downloader program to download the actual install. Finally, it was installed, and I started the program. Went to import my MTS files and it told me they were HD files and that they are not supported in the trial version. So much for that. What a waste of time. Given all the other unfavorable reviews here and the refund headaches/obstacle course, this software is just not worth purchasing to then find out if it will even work well for me.

    I also downloaded Pinnacle Studio 11 Ultimate to try that one. That trial does support editing MTS files. But the program is very very slow and crashes constantly.

    For the record, the program I will most likely purchase (since it's the only so far that has even worked me) is AVSVideoEditor at . This worked right out of the box, imported my MTS, I was editting, also a bit slow, not a single crash, and it exported the video (trial includes a watermark that you are using an unlicensed version). Now that's what I call a successful trial!
