My workflow is record to MTS – Convert to M2T to work with – Output to MOV, M2V or MPG.
Once a project is done, I burn a DVD or BD with the final, create an ISO of the final which I store either on HD if small or BD-RE if large, plus I keep the original MTS files on HD for a while then back up to BD-R for longer term. Also, if a smaller (100MB or less) MPG, M2V or MOV (or MP4) is available, I keep those around on HD.
