I did something really stupid. I imported my clips from Canon Vixia into iMovie. Without checking to see if the footage imported, I grabbed the camera and performed "Quick Initilize" on the camcorder. Later I found out that iMovie crashed and my footage was not in the library. Anyway, I downloaded photorec and testdisk. Scanned the contents of the card and found the TS files. There is hundreds of them, spread across 30 folders or so. I tried some freebie tool to combine the TS in a coupple of folders but it seems to be combining them out of sequence. Any ideas how to convert the TS to avi or mp4? Could I just use a unix/shell script to list the files in each folder and create 1 TS file per folder? Not sure if this will work or if the files will still be out of sequence. I'm really not sure how Canon stores the TS files... Thanks for any insights.
