Step 1: Add MTS video clip(s)

Run this MTS to DVD converter and the first thing you see is a plain screen as the program loads.

To get started we will add video files, so click on the "+" icon on the center area of the program window, then navigate and select the MTS videos you wish to burn to the empty disc. When the video files are loaded a green bar in the bottom side will show you how full the DVD disc is.

Note it's really easy to figure out if you added too much video or not through the bottom bar, which will show you the percentage of the DVD that is full.


Step 2: Edit MTS Videos

Once you have added all of your MTS clip(s), go ahead and edit the files if you like. This MTS to DVD converter for Mac includes a pretty basic editing feature. Simply highlight the video file to be edited, and then choose "Edit" icon in the lower right side of the video to open the editing window. Here you can do some trimming, adding watermark, performing effects, and even importing external subtitles. Pretty simple to use.

Step 3: Add a DVD menu

Go ahead and move to "Menu" tab, you have a variety of cool menu styles that you can choose from to create your very own, custom designs for the DVD project.

Here you can choose a template which will determine the appearance of the menu, as well as frame and button for the titles and chapters.

Step 4: Start burning MTS files

Before the MTS burning, the application will quickly generate a preview with your selected DVD options. Go to the "Preview" tab (next to "Menu" tab) on the top to preview the finished DVD project.

After everything is done, insert a blank DVD: 4.7 GB (Single Layer DVD) or 8.5 GB (Double Layer DVD) to your Mac, and press the "Burn" tab, this will open up the dialog box where you can burn MTS file to DVD disc or, if you want more control, change for "DVD folder" (AUDIO_TS, VIDEO_TS), "DVDMedia" and "ISO File".

Again, click on the red "Burn" button to start burning MTS to DVD on Mac.

A process screen will appear indicating how long until it is finished as the MTS file(s) burns. The time for MTS to DVD conversion takes a while, especially if you're burning a long quality MTS video. Usually the larger size or higher quality the videos are, the more time will be needed.

That's it! After the process finishes, just pop the disc into home DVD player and enjoy it on a big, beautiful HDTV screen.
