Is there a solution to this?
I ran into the same problem. I have had my S100 for almost a year, but have never created scenes long enough where the camcorder would create split files (at around 11 minutes 20 seconds). This past weekend, a friend used my S100 to record a family event and created one scene on the camcorder that is about 90 minutes long, which created 7 files that are around 2GB each.
Until now, my scenes were all under 10 minutes (2GB), so I just copied the MTS files off the SD card and imported them into Premiere Pro CS4 projects, no problems.
However, when importing the split scene MTS files into PrPro, the MTS files seem to have trailing "junk", extra frames, dropped frames, missing audio, etc. or leading extra frames. Not consistent across all 7 MTS files. But none of the split files seamlessly align in PrPro.
The kicker is that the 90 minute scene plays perfect in the camcorder. I have reviewed the scene at each point where the files transition, frame by frame, and there are no problems - on the camcorder.
I have tried copying just the MTS files off the SD card, copying with CPI files, and even used the Pixela transfer utility, all with the same problematic results. I am beginning to wonder if the problem is somehow with PrPro in handling these split MTS files.
Any suggestions for software to combine all 7 split MTS files into a single MTS file that I can import into PrPro?
