Re: Home much IQ difference betweenavchd andencoded mp4

AVCHD and MP4 both use the same codec and the same compression scheme. The difference is in the folder structure and metadata used for the files.

I have no familiarity with Studio 12 but a decent video editor will allow some control over the resolution and the amount of compression applied to the output file. You might look to see if there are any settings you can tweak to improve the output quality.

If you're doing really simple edits such as just trimming or joining clips and you don't need to do any transitions or sound dubbing, then you should look for an editor that can do these things without re-encoding the video at all - that will give you a result that's identical in quality to your originals.
