    How to trim and export an AVCHD clip - Basic Question

    Blinding01

      Hello.  This is my first post.  Hopefully an easy one.

       

      I have a sory SR10 or similar camcorder, and it saves HD video in AVCHD format.

       

      Say I copy a .mts file onto my hard disk, and then insert this file as a clip into the timeline in CS4.

       

      Let's assume the clip is 60 seconds long.

       

      If I trim the clip, down to 30 seconds.  How can I export the result into the original format.  i.e. avchd?

       

      Basically, I want to trim a 60 second AVCHD (.mts) file into a 30 second AVCHD file.

       

      If I export to h264, I am assuming I will get compression loss.

       

      Any assistance would be gracefully received.

       

      Thanks
