How to import M2TS files to Adobe Premiere for editing

In Sep. 23, 2008, Adobe released Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, and in October of the same year, it released Adobe Premiere Elements 7.0, both the two programs include AVCHD support (but not in the trial version of CS4). It is good news for people to see that via the two versions and the later ones, they are able to edit their footages shot by a Sony HDR-SR10, or other AVCHD camcorders, which have .mts or .m2ts file extensions. The thing is that some people already have a Premiere Pro CS3, Premiere Elements 4.0, or even older versions, they are not willing to spend money for upgrading or purchasing, and then what would be the cost-efficient way to solve their problem? As a matter of fact, you just need cost very little money for an AVCHD video converter, no more than $30, and it will totally resolve your problem.
In the following paragraphs, I would like to show you my own solution of converting AVCHD files to Adobe Premiere workable format via this kind of converter named Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter, which is only $29, and without audio and video out of sync issues.

Step 1: Run this AVCHD video converter, and load MTS/M2TS files to it
Click "Add" button to import .mts and .m2ts files as long as you launched this program.

Step 2: Select output format and set save path
Click on the drop-down list of "Format" to select an output format for importing to Adobe Premiere. This utility has specific format profile for Adobe Premiere, and you just need choose one according to your own needs.

Click the folder icon at the opposite side of "Output" to specify the save path of the output files. At the same time, if you want to combine multiple files into a single file, you can tick the checkbox "Merge into one file".
Step 3: Click "Settings" button to do advanced settings
All the parameters in the popup window are changeable, including codec name, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, and audio channels.
Step 4: Click "Convert" button to start conversion
Once finished, the output files can be found out via clicking on "Open" button.
