Simple way to Recover corrupt MTS/M2TS files for Premiere pro

Get some corrupt M2TS files and wanna edit corrupt M2TS files in Premiere pro? This article offers you a simple way to fix corrupt m2ts files for Adobe Premiere.

I have found AVCHD/MTS/M2TS files to be a consistent problem in a Premiere workflow. Either the cache database gets corrupt MTS/M2TS, or relink the normal M2TS media in ti Premiere timeline. I wanted to post something to inform others about what I feel is the simple corrupt MTS/M2TS for Premiere workflow.

Though M2TS files may corrupt, it is still something that should make Premiere support corrupt M2TS files. When importing AVCHD type media, right click and select import at the top level of the folder ie on the ‘private’ folder, rather than digging down, . This is so that all relevant metadata comes in too. Premiere does actually need those extra files because they contain the metadata that tells Premiere what to do with the clips where a single take has been split into two (or more) .MTS files (perhaps due to a file size limit characteristic of the camera). Doesn’t work for you? Here we have another solution.

Clearly, the problem is not the fault of Adobe, therefore, if you get a third party program to encode MTS/M2TS to Premiere friendly format in advance, you will get a fluent workflow of MTS/M2TS in Adobe Premiere. There are a lot of programs online for you to encode videos. What I used is Brorsoft MTS Converter for Mac (Windows version).

It supports creating high quality MPEG-2, WMV and MOV video for your Premiere Pro CC/CS6/CS5, no matter what the format of your source video files is. The conversion is very easy to handle and only with a few simple clicks, you can finish the conversion without facing any glitches. Now, download the software, and follow the guide below to start conversion.

Fix Damaged MTS/M2TS files for Premiere pro

1. Run the MTS/M2TS to Premiere Pro converter and click the Add Video button to import the MTS videos to be converted. You can also drag and drop MTS AVCHD clips to the application. The app supports converting multiple files at a time.

2. Go to “Format” drop-down bar to select a proper video format. To edit AVCHD videos in Adobe Premiere, then Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas > MPEG-2 (*.mpg) is the suitable one.
