It is claimed that DaVinci Resolve works with a wide variety of file formats in real time including DPX, CIN, EXR, Tiff, QuickTime, ProRes, DNxHD and MXF files. While the DaVinci Resolve Lite is such a pain. May be we need a AVCHD MTS assistant to get more help.

Here we strongly recommend you the professional AVCHD assistant which can handle all the AVCHD files well with popular editing tools, including the DaVinci Resolve Lite. Join us to know how it works so well?


Step 1. Load our source recordings

Open this program, when the main interface pops up in front of you, two buttons on the left corner can do us a big favor. 'Add video' and 'Add from folder'. The first one is aimed to load your video clips individually, while the second can load footage as the complete one.

Step 2.Choose the suitable output for DaVinci Resolve.

Now it is time to come to the output list. Don't worry you didn't find the item for DaVinci Resolve Lite, cause we know the best format is DNxHD MOV, so we suggest you to select the 'Avid Media Composer' -> 'DNxHD (*.mov)' as the best one. Just look the screen shot below.

Tips: For 3D movie conversion? Why not go to the '3D Video' to choose one as your favorite? For example, 3D MP4, 3D MKV, 3D MOV/AVI etc.

Step 3.(Optional) Advanced functional items? Move your steps to the 'Settings' interface, here we will find ourselves with such 'Trim','Crop', or 'Subtitles' etc. Or change to the 'advance mode', you can get more there.


At the end of this paper, let me tell you how to start our conversion work. Just go back to the main interface, 'Convert' there is waiting for your clicking. After that, just enjoy your output files when editing in DaVinci Resolve Lite. Fortunately, here is a MTS Topic Page you can get more knowledge of MTS files. Thanks for reading!
