Re: Those aren't the video files you're looking for

I transcode the MTS files seemlessly through the log and transfer tool in FCP into ProRes(LT) for editing. They gain about 40% in size but the benefit is that it then can be edited in realtime including slow motion, stabilization(smooth cam), and 80% of filters and transition without requiring rendering the preview (unlike motion JPEG).

Editing a highly compressed format like AVCHD directly will slow down your editing workflow. I have done both and it really is tiring waiting 1-2 min for an effect to render on every change

To me transcoding the batch to ProRes(LT) is well worth the ease of editing after
