MTS finds its use in high-definition digital cameras as well as storage and playback on Blu-ray discs. MTS lacks support by many apps and devices; thus, compatibility is one of its most significant drawbacks. With that being the case, it makes MTS a perfect file format for conversion to MP4, which sees a broad range of compatibility and has long been considered an industry-standard format. So why should you convert an MTS to an MP4? Well, unless you are planning on saving your MTS file to a Blu-ray disc, then converting to MP4 is an excellent choice, with MP4’s great compatibility with devices, operative systems, platforms, and software. While a conversion from MTS to MP4 might reduce the video quality a bit, it will most likely reduce the file size as well. With that being said, it’s well worth converting to MP4 if you prefer a streamlined and user-friendly format for playback or video editing.

Open Pinnacle Studio on your PC (if you need to install Pinnacle Studio, follow the buy now link above, run the installation file, and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation and setup process).
Simply drag and drop the video from the Pinnacle Studio library or your computer file explorer on to the timeline. Should you wish to crop video, trim video, or make any other edits, now is the time to do so.
When you’re happy with the video on the timeline, go to the Export tab in Pinnacle Studio. The default tab on the export tab is to export to file. Here you can select which file type you wish to export your video as.
Under properties, you can select the video profile to render too. To the right, under the preview pane, you can see the projected file size. Ex. If you select a 4K video format, the file size will be larger than if you export to an HD profile. Once your file type and profile are selected, you can proceed to export.
To begin export, press the Start Export button. This will render your video to the file format of your choice. This is a quick and easy way to export and convert video from one file format to another.
