BurnFX is a nice application for those you have an AVCHD camcorder and want to archive or distribute their videos without loosing the HD quality. It burns very friendly m2ts files shot by an AVCHD camcorder on DVDs in format AVCHD playable on stand-alone Blu-Ray players or on PS3 stations of Sony.

The main advantages of BurnFX are:

One may load a great number of m2ts clips and join them smoothly (without the hassle of opening them one by one)

One may burn AVCHD disks without recompressing the m2ts clips even if they have format FX (that is to say 1920 x 1080) and a bitrate of 24 Mbits/s that is not accepted by applications like Sony's PMB.

If the size of the clips is greater than the capacity of a single-face DVD, then BurnFX groups the clips automatically in several disks that may be burnt successively on DVDs.

BurnFX creates a chapter for each clip, thus making it very easy to browse among the scenes in the AVCHD disk.

BurnFX keeps the audio and video in sync, much better than what you may experience with other methods that fail to keep it when joining a lot of clips.

. Install BurnFX and the necessary applications

To install BurnFX, simply launch the setup file contained in the downloaded zip. BurnFX is essentialy a graphical user interface that uses three third-party free applications also contained in the setup file. These files will be copied in the installation folder of burnFX and will work in a "portable "mode without writing to the registry ans without disturbing any previouslu installed version of that files..

The first is eac3to that is used by BurnFX to create audio and video streams joining the selected m2ts files.

    By default BurnFX uses the file delivered by its setup. You may also use an already installed version (if not too old). In that case, you should write the path to the executable file eac3to.exe in the Settings panel (F10).

The second is tsMuxeR used by BurnFX to create AVCHD structures by muxing the previously created streams and adding the chapter data.

    By default BurnFX uses the file delivered by its setup. You may also use an already installed version (if not too old). In that case, you should write the path to the executable file tsMuxeR.exe in the Settings panel (F10).

Finally the third is ImgBurn that is used to burn on a DVD the AVCHD structure in a format that can be read by stand-alone Blu-Ray players or Sony's PS3 stations.

    By default BurnFX uses the file delivered by its setup. You may also use an already installed version (if not too old). In that case, you should write the path to the executable file imgburn.exe in the Settings panel (F10).

 

Now you are ready to proceed. Go to Start Menu or to your Desktop and click on the icon of BurnFX:

When you quit for the first time BurnFX, you will be asked to save the preferences. It is strongly recommended to accept, either in Normal or Portable mode, otherwise you will have to find again and input the paths for the three free necessary applications.

. Create AVCHD disks

When BurnFX is launched and ready to load clips, you may load as many m2ts clips as necessary in the listbox at left with the buttons Files or Folders. The first is for selecting them individually, the second loads all m2ts files contained in a given folder. The button Empty resets the list.

As soon as a m2ts  file has been loaded, it can be played in a little video player, provide you have installed the filters ffdshow and haali media splitter. See here from the installation of ImageGrab how to get them if necessary. You may thus check if you want to include it in the selection, or remove it simply by typing the Del Button on your keyboard. The file is removed from the list, but not erased from the hard disk.

 

A clear limitation of BurnFX 1.0.x is that it cannot change the order of the clips. They are always listed in alphabetical order, that is the chronological order if you did not modify their name like 20100104111255.m2ts. BurnFX is not a video editing application, but for archiving and distributing on AVCHD disks for friends having a Blu-Ray player.

Once the files are loaded, click on the button Disks, to display the list of disks about to be created:

.

BurnFX groups the various m2ts clips into disks of size about 4,5Gb.

You may start the processing and burning of the selected disk named XX by clicking on the button Disk XX, or launch the processing of all disks at once by clicking on the button All Disks. In the second case, BurnFX will process all disks successively (on my old computer its lasts about 30 minutes for one disk) and proposes to burn them one by one as soon as they are ready and you have inserted a blank disk in the DVD writer.

The button Burn is used to burn or burn again all disks that have been checked as ready for that in the data panel that displays some information about each disk.

If you go to the Settings Panel (F10) you may change various folders and settings that determine the behaviour of BurnFX. When you quit for the first time BurnFX, you will be asked to save the preferences. It is strongly recommended to accept, either in Normal or Portable mode, in order to keep the preferences and find them again at next launch
