    Diminished quality in conversion with MPEG Streamclip

      I have MPG files saved to my cpu which were shot in the dreaded AVCHD format. In order to edit in premeire, i have to convert these files using mpeg streamclip. I have tried to convert them to quicktime, dv, mpeg etc. I found that the only way that premeire would let me drag it to the timeline was if i converted the footage to avi. My only problem is the loss in picture quality. It is diminished to the point that i could not turn this into clients without them noticing. Why am I losing quality? Any suggestions?
