Solved Changing BDAV to MPEG-TS

Hello

I’ve been trying many soft-wares for loss-less snipping and am working on BDAV M2TS AVCHD videos. I have been trying Smart Cutter by Fame-Ring which might be the only one that keeps the files as BDAV and is almost completely not re-encoded. However when I try other soft-wares, they change my snipped file format to MPEG-TS MTS AVCHD. The size is pretty much the same and the playback seems fine, my question is just am I definitely not ruining anything about my videos if it changes their container? I don’t want to change anything about their format at all. From what I understand, the videos were shot as MTS originally in the camera, then changed to M2TS when imported for burning as a Blu ray and now because of snips will be changed back to MTS like they were the first time. Is that the correct understanding of those containers? So BDAV is exactly the same as MPEG-TS, right? Nothing was changed for playback reasons? I just want to be sure this isn’t a bad idea regrading quality and compatibility being that these programs claim to be loss-less.

Thank you !

I find Fame-Ring has some issues with another format though which limits my usage and for the price it might be better to get something else, that’s how this started.

BDAV just refers to blue ray authoring. It is a name for that process rather than an actual file extension. See these two for further information:

The file extensions which you mentioned are just ones that are used for the BDAV process so you have no need to worry about them changing anything.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
