There are some free converters online; they can convert AVCHD to different video formats. But there are some limitations. First, you should connect the internet. Second, they can’t promise you the quality of converted videos. Third, if the converted files are too big (more than 100MB), these online converters can’t convert them.
But I want to introduce the F2Fsoft AVCHD Video Converter software to you. It can convert MTS to MP4, MKV, AVI and other 150 video formats with fast speed and good quality. What’s more, it also can convert Blu-ray, HD videos, M2TS and MTS. At the same time, it can edit, enhance and personalized your videos, such as trim, crop, merge, 3D, rotate videos and add subtitles.
