Cutting clips without rendering

Hi all,

I shoot a lot of footage each week that is turned into video files for the web. Months later these same files are turned into blu-ray's and regular DVD's. So I have to keep the orriginal captured footage until they are burned to disk. I use a tapeless system. One of the cameras is not easily accessible during taping so I get a whole lot of garbage footage that I will never use. Out of 30 minutes I might only keep 10 minutes.
Is there a program that can cut these M2T files without rendering? I would like to chop everything off before and after the good stuff and resave the file.

Thanks.

Cant you do this in your Capture software (ie Priemere pro) by using a batch capture setting the in and out points. This way only what you designate as start and stop points are captured. You do a rough cut setting the points then a batch capture. If its a lot f footage you go take a nap or something and the batch capture occurs.

MPEG Streamclip can find the keyframe, you set in/out points at key frames and save only the desired part. Absolutely no re-encoding.

Thanks Ervin, I just downloaded MPEG streamclip. Sounds like it is exactly what I needed.
