A lot of software still doesn't work properly with AVCHD - i'm just trying to do simple cut/edits and join the .mts files together without a single drop of quality, many software would then render the files together which does lower the original .mts files' quality.

AVCHD cannot be cut and rejoined without reencoding because of the nature of the compression (I and P frames).

If you want to do a lot of cutting and editing, either record in MJPEG or use an intermediary lossless codec (like HuffYUV) for editing and then reencode the final product into H.264. You'll get much better compression than Panasonic's real-time codec anyway.
