Split or Trim AVCHD w/o Conversion/Rendering?
Can anyone suggest a program to split or trim AVCHD that does not involve file conversion or rendering after splitting?

AVCHD Camera
I am using Panasonic Lumix DMC-zs7 and similar cameras -- all Panasonic.

Sony's PIcture Motion Browser also allows trim from either end which must be using smart rendering. It takes a short while to set up and do the first few %, then it just zips right along to the end of your desired new clip. And of course, a split can be achieved indirectly by trimming twice to produce two different clips (the first half and then the second half).

But that won't help much if you don't have a Sony cam that will get you the software...

Any editor that does "smart rendering" should pretty much leave the bulk of a clip alone for simple trims or splits via two trims.

On a mac, can't you use ClipWrap, then SimpleMovieX ? neither re-encode.

Cutting avchd
I just downloaded "Smart Cutter" from Frame Accurate H.264 AVCHD Editor Without Re-Encoding and it seems to work well. The trial version has a watermark on a few of the first and last frames but you can see if it is what you need before you buy.

In addition to those mentioned, these two might work. I haven't tried them yet. Would be interesting to see any user feedback about the three mentioned stand-alone AVCHD splitting/trimming utilities.
