What program can convert MPEG-2 to H.264+AC3 ?

I'm trying to make an AVCHD from an MPEG-2 video capture.

I've tried TMPGENC and Mainconcept Reference and neither allows you to output to AC-3.

Any help?

Encode the video separately and mux it into an appropriate container afterwards. MKV allows p.e. AC-3 audio tracks whereas MPEG-4 does not (as far as I know).

What container should I save the video to?

And what can I use to mux the video + .ac3 file? Can tsmuxer do this?

Whatever container you prefer (of course it has to support H.264 and AC-3). As I said in my previous post you could use MKV. With mkvmerge GUI you have quite a handy application within mkvtoolnix to mux the files using a GUI.

If your final target is AVCHD structure, no intermediate container is necessary. Encode the video to H.264 elementary stream and encode the audio separately if it's not already AC-3. Then mux the video and audio streams to AVCHD with tsMuxeR.
