I need a workable converter app to transcode MTS clips to AVI for Pinnacle
“Hi, there, I’ve got tons of MTS files without keeping the entire AVCHD folder structure intact.

Does anyone know a good AVCHD to AVI converter to do so? I would really want to maintain the high quality of the original .mts files. Please suggest. Thanks!”
