AVCHD file format with 5.1 surround sound is becoming more and more popular format for both recording and as well as storing and sharing. Most of video editing programs such a Cyberlink Power director, Avid Studio, Corel Studio Pro x4, Sony Vegas already have AVCHD support with 5.1 surround sound. Corel studio pro X4 takes it even one step further and even creates background music using Smart Sounds in 5.1 surround sound format. Although it is possible to import and edit in Adobe Premiere Elements 9 m2ts or mts files with 5.1 surround sound, the final project cannot be exported in this format. Inability to export to AVCHD format and limiting audio output to 2 stereo channels only for remaining HD formats is significant limitation of current version of a program.
