Problem converting using Xilisoft Video Converter 1/15/2011 9:40:27 PM   (Total replies: 2)
Hi, I purchased the Xilisoft Video Converter a few years ago and I love it. However, I recently ran into a problem with it. Here are the details: I just bought a new Sony HDR-CX350V video camera with which I can film 1920x1080 and 1440x1080. The output it creates is of format MPEG4 AVC/H.264 (when I transfer the files from the camera to my PC, it always creates 2 files for each video: a .M2TS file which is the main video file and a .M2TS.MODD file which I have no clue what it is for). ...

Thanks for the info PapaJohn. When you tried it, you used Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate and the company asked me to try with the Ultimate version but I have not had the chance to try it out yet and according to your test, it will probably fail as well. You mentioned it works great with WLMM: 1) Is there a link to get the WLMM free of charge (since I already have the WMM version on my machine, which came with Vista) or do people have to pay for it? 2) It WLMM just as easy to use ...

Hi, OK, so I've downloaded WLMM from the link provided by PapaJohn and all that went fine. However, when I go into WLMM and I ask to add a video file to my project, it's ok for many types of files but when I try to load an .M2TS file, it does not do it and displays like a film reel with a yellow triangle in them which have an exclamation point on them. If I double click on the yellow icons, it says that the files is damaged or in a format that Movie Maker does not recognize. (I know ...

Yeah, I had all the Sony PMB software installed so I'm also guessing it might be because I'm using Vista instead of Windows 7. Does anyone out there know of a good software video converter which can succesfully convert HD H.264/MPEG-4 AVC VIDEO (1920x1080) to a WMV file so that I could then use it in my WMM under Vista? Thank you all for your help and suggestions.

OK, I've had the chance to try out 7 different video converters over the weekend, to convert H.264 to WMV (1080p). Here's my report on these: 1. Xilisoft: really crappy conversion, not good at all (contacted the company and they plan on possibly implementing a better version in the future but have no idea when); 2. OJOSoft: not too bad but did lose some quality in the conversion; 3. ImToo: same ax Xilisoft (see above #1); 4. AVS: not too bad but did lose a little bit of quality in ...

I've tried to convert them using Vegas Movie Studio HD as this software can read the files in and I saved them back as WMV. I have not yet copied them to a DVD to see the quality of the final version but I noticed that while other conversion programs created a file of less than 50 MEGS for a 32 second clip, the Vegas output created a file of about 4.5 GIGS, which is humongous compared to the others, in 1920x1080. My question is: is there a way in Vegas to set it up to still produce a ...

I don't know much about the settings and how they all work or could affect this. Do you know which setting in there I would need to change?

Hi, I've added this under my AddOnTFX folder under Metallic_Rainbow.XML and my WMM cannot find them. In WMM when I click on Effects and see the list, I get 2 entries for Metallic Rainbow but they show up with a red X across them and I cannot seem to be able to use them. What am I doing wrong here? Thanks Marc

Hi Blackbucktwilight, So, if I understand correctly, if I install the DLP Cartoon Edges, then the Metallic Rainbow Effects will work and I won't be seeing them with a red X anymore? Where do I get the DPL cartoon Edges effects? Thanks Marc
