Mync is designed to catalogue footage for use in other programs. As I said I know FCP7 would not take AVCHD at all unless the entire card structure was present. It would not load MTS files at all. FCP7 is dead but there may be other programs which are the same. To keep maximum compatibility they should keep it in the format in which it originated.

This also keeps all metadata. AVCHD does not have much metadata, other formats do and that cannot be stored in just one file most of the time.

Having said that I don't know why it makes one file for each clip as opposed to the way EDIUS works which is to put all clips I copy into one folder. Maybe that too is something to keep maximum compatibility.

I already send GV a feature request ages ago. You send one too as the more people that send requests the more likely it is to happen.
