Why did you not copy the source files into a folder on the new PC and use them instead of the file you output?
All original/raw files were transferred without any change in file name. I collected the entire file folder that had everything assigned to this project in cs4 and simply launched PP proj exec and the mts files became one large file that started with the first mts shot to the last. PP only asked for the assignment of one file when it launched as new in cs5.
Now in cs5 when I try and import the individual mts file which play individually in any other player, it stays as individual. Once I try and import the mts file again in cs5, the mts file name is correct id, but the file no matter whether it is mts 2,3,4 or 5 starts with the first video shot to the the last shot.
I assume there is a command when I first launch cs5 AND launch a new proj exe file that would give indication that I do not want mts files to be joined.
Do the individual mts source files show in your project bin?
Yes, the files show in the project bin as individual file names as they would have in the cs4 project.
They are combined when you preview them in the bin and when you carry them over to the timeline.
Some how you have broken the AVCHD folder structure.
Hopefuly you have access to the originals or maybe you can do a repair on them.
Copy the files back to a source card and try a repair in camera .
