Does anyone know of a video converting software that is truly lossless?
I have tried quite a few and am working with trimming m2ts videos and don’t want to sacrifice the quality just for a trim. I have Vegas as well and it’s version of m2ts isn’t the same as my cameras. It’s a Panasonic camera. Either way I would just like some kind of software to do slight audio or cutting out edits without losing quality on different video formats. I’ve tried any video converter, movavi and others. I’ve tried handbrake and thought it was perfect for what I needed but I got a Trojan malware from installing it about a year ago which made me not trust it. I Appreciate your ideas if any particular type comes to mind

I've used Filmora (a Wondershare product) too; having tested one or two others. Professional level software such as Final Cut (the top dog) is not cheap... But it does retain the original quality (all things being equal).

Filmora is simple to use; and at least in a domestic environment when viewed the quality is as original.

If I was wishing to nit pick the finished video, then I would need to view the original and processed version in a more professional environment (I'm ex broadcasting and have a more professional/technical perception in that regard).

There are more than a few such packages about. However when one views some of the material broadcast every day on semi-HD (720) and some of the upscaled stuff (SD to 720 or even lower...) which is broadcast; and also is aware that often satellite charges often force/persuade oblige the sender/user to go half band with (or even less) which produces not the best images quality when viewed, the term perception re' quality starts to degrade for many...

But for general use domestic and corporate at least Filmora does OK.

Thanks guys!
And that is very helpful trvlr! I haven’t tried either two so I will give them a shot for sure! My only question regarding Filmora is it’s security. Obviously it is safe being that you’ve used it for so long but why do I see so many reviews online saying it’s a PUP, malware, virus etc, What is your opinion on that being that so many have mentioned this. Thanks for all the tips on the quality as well.

When I installed it (on my Mac Mini) I had no such issues. However I never accept the inevitable automatic/default installation routine. I opt for manual/custom and watch for all pre checked boxes, and uncheck them all - apart from the one for item I want.

I do this with any software off the web, and where/whenever possible with “anything” that be supplied via cd/dvd.

If you’re running windoze, then create a restore point first. Afterwards, if you feel inclined, run malwarebytes, adwcleaner, ccleaner to dig out anything you think might have been snuck in; though as I say on my Mac I had no such issues; and I do have Malwarebytes and ccleaner. Maybe run those prior to installing Filmora anyway.
