Help with M2T in Adobe-Import m2t video files to Premiere Pro with a MPEG-2/WMV format

July 25 2013 , Written by lauralily10 Published on #help with m2t in adobe, #m2t to premiere pro, #m2t video clip imported to premiere, #how do i edit m2t in premiere pro, #m2t to mpeg-2 .mpg for premiere pro, #m2t to wmv converter for adobe premiere pro, #converting m2t files to premiere pro, #M2T format to MPEG-2-WMV

How to transcode M2T videos to MPEG-2/WMV for Adobe Premiere Pro

"The native format of HDV isn’t QuickTime, its .M2T.

M2T, otherwise called an MPEG-2 Transport stream, is not the same thing as the standard MPEG-2 file that we create in Compressor to use in DVD Studio Pro. I was told recently that there are 14 different versions of MPEG-2, which I find strangely reassuring.

Anyway, while working on my latest book, I needed to convert .M2T files into something that Adobe Premiere Pro can edit. Premiere likes lots and lots of different files – but not .M2T."

What do I need to convert M2T format to MPEG-2/WMV for Premiere Pro? To convert M2T video to MPEG-2/WMV format, Brorsoft M2T Converter is the best software for you. Learn how to convert M2T video to Premiere Pro in the following M2T video to .mpg format conversion guide.
