    Any details on the type of MPEG-2 clip? Mainly, file extension, stream type, where it came from and what audio formatting it uses?

    A description of the error message EDIUS gives you, is also useful.

        Welcome thecrowtr!

        It looks like you have a camera with a harddrive. (See here)

        Do you have to use the Sony software to download or can you simply copy files?

        Your camera records HD in AVCHD, and I'm not sure where Edius is with that currently.

        Is your project SD? If so it should do the Sony MPEG2.

        Sorry I'm not much help.

          Looking at the camera specs, as Rusty pointed out, it records 1080i AVCHD and some flavour of SD MPEG-2 (with 5.1 AC-3 muxed audio).

          Your workflow looks to be correct (using the Sony software), but I wouldn't have thought any conversion (reencoding) be required.

          What version of EDIUS are you running?

            I am going to assume that your SR1 is much like my SR7. Yes you use the Sony Browser software to import into the PC. There is no need to do any conversion. The files will appear in the My Pictures folder if you have not told the Sony software to locate somewhere else. Note the files and location, that you want to import from the Sony Browser software . Open Edius , if version Edius 4.5 then just right click in the assets window, click import file and select the folder>file(s) that you want to import. It doesn't matter whether they are AVCHD or MPEG2 SD, they will import into Edius 4.5. The files will work directly on the timeline even the AVCHD, though much slower than with the Sony Browser software or Vegas 8. The AVCHD files can be converted to the Canopus HQ codec for faster response on the timeline though this takes a very long time and I haven't found this to be much use for short clips. MPEG2 will work just fine on the timeline with DV or HDV. I believe you will have to convert AVCHD to HQ if you have Edius version before Edius 4.5. At the moment Vegas 8 is the better choice for AVCHD editing in that it will edit at reasonable speed directly on the timeline.

              dear friend;
              i copy the clips in my comp. after, i convert its to mpeg2 for publishing in a network, server system for the multiple user. for that reason i have to convert it mpeg2 format. but with some of these clips i have to produce some advertising. while i try to use edius 4.5 for a kind of this project i can not be able to import to edius from my comp's harddisk. instead of importing if i choose to open as file/open command edius can be able to use it. i cannot understand the reason of that.

                thanks your help. you are right edius can import the clips with the mts format. but i cannot use its like that because i cannot hear any thing. and the motion of the people is not suitable for the editing.

                for this format the sony vegas pro 8 is the better. but sony vegas pro 8 have no a good rendering options. mpeg 2 of vegas 8 is not good as premiere pro and edius.

                  The Audio in AVCHD is Dolby Digital AC3 and versions of Edius before 4.5(?) do not play this. You are correct in that Edius playback is VERY slow for AVCHD, Vegas 8 is a little faster depending on how you have set up the preview quality and the speed of your PC. As far as quality of encoding is concerned my choice would be TMPGenc 4 which could convert for you too. At the moment to edit AVCHD in any of the editors requires the original files to be converted before any fine editing and the only reasonable quality conversion would be Canopus HQ or Cineform if you are in Premiere Pro. I have tried converting to HQ, then editing in Edius and then re-encoding to DVD from within Edius. It takes a very long time( about 10 times realtime to convert to HQ on my dual core AMD4200X2 system) and the quality difference from just straight editing in Vegas 8 and exporting MPEG 2 from Vegas is indistinguishable to me. On a mixed project( AVCHD, HDV and DV) I even exported a DV avi from Vegas 8 and converted in TMPGenc 4 which gave a good encode in my estimation and a DV copy to tape.

                    Sounds like you need to download the AVCHD to Canopus HQ converter utility off our web site (look in the General downloads area).

                    This will let you drag-and-drop the camera files into the converter and from there, create clips that will give you improved editing performance.

                      you are right about the quality of vegas 8 with format mts rendered as mpeg 2. it is terrible.
