Sony HX100V---This was shot in AVCHD 60p at 28 Mbps. I edited and published it with AVS Video Editor 220.127.116.11, at 60p and 16 Mbps in MP4. This is the first time I've been able to publish in 60p with AVS Video Editor, which does not come with this capability. They offer only 29.97 FPS as the highest frame-rate option. To do this, I edited the .xml files for the AVS editing profile I had set with this program for MP4 at 16 Mbps. I changed the frame-rate from 29.97 FPS to 59.94 FPS (59.940000) in the .xml files. AVS does not support Apple or Linux operating systems.
If you do this procedure, be sure to set up a custom profile for everything you want, except the 59.940000 frame-rate, before you begin. There won't be such a profile on the .xml page in your Hidden Files, unless you put it there. There is no option to enter the 59.940000 frame-rate on the AVS custom page, itself. Once you have changed the frame-rate on the .xml page, you can't make any changes to the profile on the AVS custom page, or the 59.94 frame-rate will become unavailable. You'd have to re-do the frame-rate change on the .xml page, if you changed anything else at all on the AVS custom page.
It is a complicated process to edit the .xml files, if you're not familiar with the many steps to take. First, you have to be on a folder page and click on Organize in the upper-left corner. Then click on Folder and Search Options. Then on View. Then check the box for Show Hidden Files. Then click on OK.
Now, go to the AVS Video Editor in your list of programs and import a video, so you can put it on the storyboard and then click on Publish. Then click on AVI, then on Next, then set up a Custom Profile for the format and bit-rate you want. As I said, I recommend MP4 (Divx/Xvid Compatible) at 16000 kbps (16 Mbps), and 29.97 FPS (or whatever is appropriate for your region). I use MP3 audio at the highest setting of 320 kbps at 48000 kh. The much-maligned MP3 doesn't sound so bad if you give it this higher bit-rate and sampling frequency. See the AVS Help Page for more instructions on setting up a custom profile.
Now for the actual .xml file editing. First, if you have an OS older than Windows 7, you must download and install Notepad, which is a free program.
Next, go to Computer, then Drive C, then Users, then to Your Name, then App Data, then Roaming, then AVS4You, then AVS Video Editor, then Profiles, then do a right-click on template-format-avi. A pop-up should appear with the option to Edit with Notepad. If you don't see this option, then click on Open With and choose Notepad or whatever other comparable program you have. Click on that and the editable .xml files will appear. All the AVS profiles will be on a continuous page, so scroll down and find the one you want to modify. Change the 29.970000 frame-rate to 59.940000. Then, scroll back up to the top of the page and click on the Save icon, which is the third from the left on the row of functions. You could instead do a right-click on the page and left-click on Save, that appears in a pop-up. Now when you publish an edited video on AVS Video Editor, click on the custom profiles and choose the one with the 59.94 frame-rate. You should have a video source that also is in 60p (59.94 FPS). Those in PAL territory should know what the exact frame-rate is for 50p editing. You can also make a profile for 60p editing with a 720p video.
