I'm new to the forum, please forgive the questions.
I have spent the last 2 days trying to find a NLE software to use with my new Panasonic TM20. I've been using Premiere Pro for a few years now and have grown very comfortable with it, but I'm having issues with the picture when importing my MTS files, and I'm not able to export with 5.1 audio (no without spending a lot of money on plug ins).
I would like to try Vegas Pro 9, but I was wondering if it'll support MTS files, and if it'll export audio in 5.1.
If not, will I need plugins for it? If so, where can I find more information on it? I can't seem to find a list of what I would require. It's all worded to sell you something, but I can't be sure.
All I really want is to maintain max quality from my MTS files and to utilize the 5.1 audio that is supported by my camera.
Thanks for the help!
