Default Black screen

Hi,
I realized now that my new Edius 9 is unable to play my camcorder AVCHD (MTS) files. The viewer is all black, timeline plays audio only, as if a codec were missing. My drivers and Direct X are all up to date, I've tried changing Quicktime settings (though MTS is no Quicktime format ...), converting MTS to Grass Valley lossless, and even re-installed Edius, but nothing seems to work ...

can you inspect the MTS file with mediainfo (free) and set it to tree view and provide the results

ahahh, a 5.1 surround sound Blu-ray file of only 3 seconds duration

download the free AVCHD2HQ converter by logging in to your Grass Valley account

then drop the MTS file onto the AVCHD2HQ icon, conversion should be very fast (1 sec)

It's the same format I've always used in the last years.
Edius 6 had no problems with it.

if AVCHD2HQ can't convert the file, the file is corrupt

can you put that 3 sec file on dropbox etc

I've already tried another converter, it works and the output file (Quicktime/MP4) plays fine in Edius 9 timeline. But I wished to use the original files to avoid multiple rendering and quality loss.

It's not just about the single 3sec file, I realized Edius 9 plays none of all the AVCHD files I've used so far, unlike Edius 6. I'm still able to use them, but only if I change them to another format.
