MTS convertor

Hello all

Relatively new to the AVCHD thing and just bought myself a Sony NX5U and LOVE it! One thing I'm struggling with is how to store the footage. I do it right now by creating folders on an HDD and labeling them by date. Well, after I've successfully transferred the files, I delete them from the card (by camera function), but now the editors are looking to use the files (we film our deer hunts) and I'm looking for the best way to get the footage to them to use in FCP.

I've seen a few convertors out there but I want to get them the footage without losing any quality....can someone help?

I've read a little...

Seems I wanted to try Clipwrap, Aiseesoft MTS Converter, or handbrake (I think that's free) - but I'm not sure what will work best for the editors using FCP to not lose any quality.

Thanks for the advice. And if someone can help in the future, how can I import all file structure folders and yet still name a folder to organize my files?

Re: MTS convertor

Wouldn't the best method be to just copy the "entire" contents of the memory stick and give that to the editors? They would use "log and transfer" to bring the clips into FCP from what I read. You might use something like UltraCopier on your mac to do the transfer (similar to TeraCopy for a PC).
