Hi there. Newbie here. I'd originally recorded hours of vacation videos on Canon's HF-S100. The original files are in HD 1920x1080, 24 MBS, and MTS format. After wrestling for months with editing and having the ultimate goal of putting the edited files onto Blu Ray, I am still confused with the format options offered by video editing software ( Cyberlink 8 ).
What is the " preferred " type of file should my edited and produced videos be in prior to Blu Ray burning, whether it is with Cyberlink ( burning program stinks ) or another burning program?
My options are MPEG-2 ( 1920 x 1080 ) ,M2TS ( 1920 x 1080 ), WMV, AVI, ETC. Which one should I choose and keep in case I would like to use that file again to burn on other program? In addition, I hope the same file can be ready to burn on standard DVD format too.
