Best quality file type to convert to from .m2t to then edit in Premiere 5 on Mac?

Hi there,

I’ve recently had a breakthrough and managed to get my mpeg streamclip to convert .m2t files. I now want to edit the footage in Premiere CS5 but am not sure of which conversion and compression to go for to obtain the highest quality files to edit… Do I convert to Quicktime, AVI, MPE-4? And what compression do I choose after choosing my file type to get best quality?

Thank you
