Transport Stream TS file is a container format that stores video on a DVD and compresses video data using standard MPEG-2 video compression. Its design goal is to allow multiplexing of digital video and audio and to synchronize the output. TS files are often saved as multiple files on a DVD, i.e. "moviename1.ts", "moviename2.ts", "moviename3.ts", etc. They can be played back by various software DVD players and video editing tools. However, EDIUS couldn't recognize TS files.
EDIUS Pro provides a simple alternatives to the industry leaders, but it has all of the tools that other professional video editing software has such as powerful tools, enhanced timeline, advanced multicam support, 64-bit processing. One peculiarity that sets EDIUS Pro apart from others is that it doesn't utilize GPU acceleration for rendering, transcoding and exporting videos. And this is a big advantage over other applications that require time and processing capacity to render footage. EDIUS Pro supported format for file import:
Since EDIUS Pro lacks GPU acceleration for transcoding TS video files, you will need to employ a third-party application to perform the video codec transcoding process for you. After multiple testing, I found Pavtube Video Converter is the best option. It is able to convert TS to EDIUS friendly format easily with the best video quality. Besides TS, this video convert program can also help to convert between any popular video and audio formats as you need. Plus, with the built-in video editing feature of the program, you can trim, crop, add watermark and more to your video files.
Step 1: As soon as you download and install the program, launch it and when the main interface pops up in front of us, just click the "Add Video" or "Add from Folder" to let in.
Step 2: Click the drop-down list in the format line to get the format box. Then choose "Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas>>MPEG-2 (*.mpg)" as output format.
Step 3: Click "Settings" button to customize the output video and audio settings by yourself. But if you are not good at it, you'd better use the default parameters, they will ensure you a good balance between file size and image quality basically. You can change the resolution, bit rate, frame rate as you need.
Step 4: After that, click "Convert" to start TS to MPEG-2 conversion.
Conclusion: After conversion, you can get the generated files by clicking "Open" button. Now, you'll get no troubles in editing TS files in EDIUS 5/6/7.
