**its interesting as when i view the media info on the original m2ts file.. it shows the "first video stream" at 15.1mbps.. 1920x1080 at 29.970 fps.. i guess the interesting part, or maybe not so much is the 15.1 (i was expecting 17, but i guess this is just a max for the camera); my 30p progressive still camera mov file shows 30fps.. i sortof was expecting it to say 60i for the canon.. but i guess the 29.970 x 2, would equate to the 60i recording mode i was using... what would this value have been if i had had it on 30p (the same im guessing? just not "interlaced")
I should follow up with this:
If you have an mts file from the camera.. rename it to m2ts.. then plop that guy into DVD Architect 5.x.. it will say it needs to recompress as the audio format isnt compliant, but if you rename it back to mts, then it says "recompress=no"..
So if there is a way to edit the mts/m2ts files without recompressing then saving as mts again, it seems that DVD Architect will let you render the media with a menu at least, without recompression
Total time on quad core 2.4ghz to render the iso in architect (renders audio only) is 47 seconds for a 1 minute clip
(vs about 8 minutes on a re-render)
Now if only there was a way to throw in transitions and effects without re-rendering.
UPDATE: I tried AVCHD with the image type of AVC instead of the usual image type of avchd with Pinnacle 12.. when you do this, the resulting image is 1920x1080, however, i was able to notice some pixelation in scenes, whereas before with purely the avc codec, though at 1440x1080, there was none (none in original).
I also tried that render as.. m2t mainconcept option in Vegas, but the resulting file had no video for some reason.. i'm not sure how to use renderas, mainconcept and get m2ts or mts as the resultant file?
