When you say,
on my CS3 install with the mainconcept plug-in installed I could output to a m2ts file keeping DD 5.1.
Do you mean the Minnetonka Audio SurCode DD 5.1 SS encoder plug-in?
Not sure that Minnetonka's plug-in is ready for 64-bit, or not. Also not sure if they will offer an upgrade, if it is not yet ready, but when it is released.
Hi Hunt, thanks a lot for replying.
Sorry, I perhaps didnt explain my issue very clearly...
...with my CS3 version I installed the MainConcept Pro plug-in which enabled CS3 to import and export m2ts files, and as I'm sure you know this file format supports DD 5.1. Now, with CS5 it supposedly supports AVCHD (m2ts) files natively, and indeed I could drag a m2ts file from my camcorder into my project. However, when I go to export the movie I dont get an option anywhere to allow me to save the movie as an m2ts file. (FYI on CS3 with the MainConcept plug-in I had an option to Export to MainConcept Pro where I could chose the usual bitrate, DD 5.1 etc). I dont know if the MainConcept Pro plug-in works with CS5.
Hopefully I have explained myself a bit better this time!

All plugins for Premiere CS5 need to be 64 bits .
Mainconcept (MC) Pro hd is for CS3 and CS4.
Drop a line to MC and see when they will have an update/upgrade for CS5.
CS5 does not export to m2ts or mts it does m4v but you can change the extention after export to m2ts.
For 5.1. in CS5 you need Surcode.
Thanks for all your responses! Just thought I would feedback in case anyone found it useful to know that MainConcept have got back to me and confirm that they are workng on a CS5 plug-in and should be available June 2010.
Thanks for sharing that info. We're almost to June 2010, so we should soon know if they make that delivery schedule, and how well it works.
