BDtoAVCHD will enable users to create AVCHD files out of HD MKV and Blu-Ray disks. It means that you get free compression and conversion capabilities and a whole variety of other features.
The output structure is ready to go, as all you need to do is select one of the two folders for DVD5 or DVD9. The advantage of AVCHD is the possibility to keep the video at a high resolution (1080p) but considerably reduce its size on disk.
All info on the video, audio tracks, and subtitles is automatically extracted so that you are presented with quality and quantity settings for each of them. One final thing you should know is that this software comes out of the box as 3D ready and can work on multitasking.
