Combine AVCHD video files from HF100 smoothly?


I own a Vixia HF100 camcorder for which there is apparently a recording  file size limit of 1.9 gb. This means that when I videotape an event that is longer than around 17 minutes the camera/SD cardbreaks the file into sections. When played back within the camera the file sequence plays flawlessly, but within video editing programs there is a slight but discernible stutter or gap. I purchased an AVCHD converter/editor and this helps some, but there is still a small "flash' when the joined video goes from one segment to the next. 


I know this has been an issue among AVCHD users for a long time, and that there are certain programs like Sony Vegas Pro that can somehow solve the problem. I am wondering if there is a less expensive solution. Supposedly, when I got the camcorder it was packaged with a Canon video program that perhaps accomplished this task. But I actually don't recall having such a program, and even if I did, I believe it is no longer supported (my computer runs Windows 8). 


Is there a solution to this of which I am not aware? And if not, is one possible answer to get a camcorder with flash memory that cam record longer segments without the burden of the FAT format file limitations of an SD card?


Thanks for any suggestions here.
