Converting Movies to MP4 Format (VIXIA mini X / LEGRIA mini X)

Solution

You can convert AVCHD and MP4 scenes to an MP4 scene with lower video quality (down-conversion) to obtain smaller file sizes. This is convenient, for example, when you want to upload videos to the Web, as smaller video files will upload more quickly.

The procedure for converting movies to MP4 is explained below.

1. Turn on the camcorder.

2. Press and hold the <> button to set the camcorder to Playback mode.

3. Touch [Edit].

4. Touch [Convert to MP4]

5. Select the desired video quality of converted movies.

NOTE
  • Before selecting the video quality, touch [Join Scenes] to join the converted movies into a single scene.
The video quality you can choose for the resulting MP4 movie will depend on the video quality of the original movie.
