Or maybe a better question...will it even import h.264/ac3 muxed ts files, mostly either 1080i50 or 720p50?
Tried several low-cost video encoder trial software and most fail..not even MPEG Streamclip can import them...except Elgato TurboHD encoder....but setting in/outpoints there is only accurate down to 1 second...
And just buy Adobe Premiere to get Adobe Media Encoder is way out of my league (o;

You can set only one in and out point in Compressor. Have you tried to import the video into Quicktime?

If you edit an .mts file you are splicing GOP's (Group Of Pictures). A long-GOP is 15 pictures (frames) long.
Before a program can export your edited movie all those GOP's you messed up must be reorderd. In fact your whole movie will be re-encoded and will probably result in a quality loss.
For the same GOP reason most programs do not allow you to set an in- and/or out-point frame accurate!

Actually I can open the movie in Quicktime Player...but I guess it does it due to installed Perian extension...
And yes..I want to reencode the opened movie...
In the mean time I installed Compressor..but it won't open the same movie file I am able to open with Quicktime player....so it doesn't use any 3rd party codecs?
