A month ago, I captured some AVCHD files with my handy JVC GZ HD620 camcorder. I planned to upload those fantastic shootings to YouTube, so it can be enjoyed by groups of people. Anyway, I did need to cut some unwanted segments without quality loss before uploading. I was once suggested to use some video conversion programs for which can has the video clipping function. I did it, but the exported file video quality isn't satisfactory. Finally, I find out an easy solution-Mac JVC Video Cutter without doing the conversion.
