I have a Sony FS100, which is wonderful to be taken to record full HD videos(AVCHD) when I’m travelling. Whereas, when I wanna edit those AVCHD MTS footage in Adobe Premiere before sharing with my friends, I met problems: the Premiere handled with the 1080 60p files so slowly, and I couldn't edit my videos smoothly.
I searched the FS100 and Adobe Premiere Pro on Google, and found the other users are also facing the importing problems: No sound importing to Premiere Pro
“Just got my new FS100 today, love it. However no sound in Premiere Pro 5.5.2 Mac. Some research has indicated that Premiere Pro doesn't like the AVCHD 60P + LPCM combo, it just thinks there’s no sound track. Is there some setting or something I can do?”
Well, I’ve found out the solution to fix the Sony AVCHD (.mts/.m2ts) in Adobe Premiere Pro issues. If you are also the FS100 owner and had the similar trouble with Premiere Pro, go through the article to check out the solution.
