As we all know, aspect ratio of the original video can not be changed easily. While if you wanna convert MTS videos for playing on big or widescreen TV, then you can change the aspect ratio during the conversion process via a professional third party program.

There are a lot of programs online for you to choose. What I used is Brorsoft MTS Converter for Mac (Windows version). It not only offers multiply outputs for MTS footage easily playing and editing, but also supplies basic editing functions such as trimming, cropping, adding watermark .etc. Now, download the software on computer and learn how to set aspect ratio of MTS video files and cut black bars.

Step One: Set up the MTS converter app on your computer, and then Click Add Video button to load your source files. You can directly drag and drop the MTS videos to the program.

Step Two: Choose output format you want under “Format” column, and tap “3D” button on the top of the main interface to adjust aspect Ratio of MTS video files before conversion.

Go to ‘Crop’ page and choose “Advanced Mode”, in the below page, you can change the Ratio casually.
