I used to edit my stuff with Adobe Premier. But recently I bought JVC GZ-MG500 which records in .MOD file type. How can i convert it to .mpeg, .avi or whatever more common? reply



I believe .MOD files are mpeg-2 files. You’ll need to get an mpeg-2 decoder (from moonlight for example), or dvd software to get adobe to decode it. reply

Have same problem with Panasonic SV AV100. They were no help. Moonlight, Elecard and Movavi don’t have it. Anybody got a clue how to convert .MOD files? reply


I use cyberlink’s powerdirector, it converts .mod files from my jvc media camera to avi, mpg 1&2 extremly well. find it with torrentbox or purchase a copy. excellent program, i converted all of my clips and used them for an hour long movie in premier. and vegas.
hope this helps reply

I don’t see any options in Cyberlink powerdirector can convert MOD format to AVI format. I have the same JVC camcorder and I can not find any progams that can do this converting.
Please help, If you have an answer for this problem. Dan, would you give us more info. in details on how to convert MOD to AVI in Cyberlink Powerdirector.
We need help. JVC don’t have an answer for its own product.

For Chau

To create a .AVI File. Once you have your video playing the way you want. Click Produce. Then select the “Create A File” button on the right. You should then be able to select .AVI or .MPEG reply

Have a look at Xilisoft Video Converter. It converts pretty much anything. reply

I have the same brand of camcorder (30Gig HD) and that software because it came with it but every time I try to load it so I can adjust what I have filmed to make it better I always get “An error occurred when opening this media file in the library F:SD_VIDEOPRG001MOV13.MOD”? reply

if you havent already, try to copy the file to the harddrive first and then open it, I also found that the SE version of power director is no as good as the full version, I also have found that AMD systems dont run this type of software as well as intel, but i dont any verifiable prof. however, upgrade you system to cyberlink power director 4 (bitorrent) and you should be able to process your files, again,, I just finished a 45 min movie with sony vegas 6, first decoding about an hour and a half from power director, then mocing them into vegas (mpg2 or avi) not sure if this helps. good luck and keep filming. reply

The mod file can be converted very easily by changing the extension from .mod to .mpg however this does not bring the audio with it. I assume that the audio is in the MOI file. I find it very frustrating to produce a video in cyberlink and then re-do the production in Premier. Is there a way I can completely convert the file to a mpeg2 without going through Cyberlink? reply

Feedback


Actually.....no... I have tried 22 different codecs/converters and nothing has worked as well as the cyberlink converter. I am aware that cyber is working on a standalone conversion package, ie stick a .mod in and get a mpeg or avi out. but nothing yet. also the mod file does contain the audio file but is none extractable via any converter other than procoder or cyberlink. (by the way, procoder dumps during conversion) reply

Tonyshep your method is the best, as you suggested, I simply renamed my .MOD files to .MPG files and Ulead Videostudio 9 can open them with no problems, audio included. Thanks!! reply

Feedback


How do you simply rename the .mod to .mpg files? Do you mean change the extension? I have not been able to do that and having been converting through Cyberlink. reply

Feedback


Thanks Xenosteel, Yes, as you say the audio comes over as well. I was experimenting using windows media player and could not get audio over. But in video studio the audio and video come over.

Gato, all I do is change the extension from .MOD to .mpg this seems to work well. I don’t know if any quality is lost, but it looks ok to me.

I have not got Premier installed at the moment so have not tried the conversion in Premier. reply

I have the same, adobe premier pro and a jvc digital video camera, that uses the mod extension. The easiest way to do this is to change the file extention to .m2v. This is an mpeg2 format and is recognised in adobe and includes audio, without any problems. Hope this helps.

Forgive me for being dim, but how do you change the file extension from .mod to .mpg or .m2v?
Thanks reply

Feedback


Gato, right click on the file, go to rename, highlight the extension (mod) and change to mpg or m2v. Hope that helps. reply

Feedback


Thanks TonyShep. My problem was “Hidden Extensions”. Once I unchecked that in Folder Options, it worked perfect. Now does anybody have any insight on HDV? Since there are no HDV burners or players yet are we left to edit, return to camera and then burn a DVD from there? I am still waiting for the “less than a pound” HDV. Sony has gotten closest with HC1. Heard good things about it. reply
