I am using Canon HF M300 to record videos and the camcorder saves AVCHD files in .mts format. The Canon VIXIA HF M300 captured 1920 x 1080 24Mbps Full HD Recording. I connect the Canon Camcorder to my Panasonic HDTV via direct USB. However, I found my shooting video of the HF M300 have some pause and interlace in the process of recording. So I need to delete much unwanted mts clips and join into one big files. So I asked for some help on some forums and was recommended to try freeware TSmuxer, TSsniper which can help me to split and merge mts files. But it is frustrated for Mac users because most of them can only work on Windows platform. Then one of my friend recommended to a new MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 cutter/joiner software for Final Mate for Mac exactly what I want - delete the unwant .mts clips and merge HF M300 1080/60p meaningful MTS files to one single MTS files without re-encoding. And I had succeed play those merged .mts files on my Panasonic TV.
