Well that's got nothing to do with non-linear-editing. Thats because the
encoder either is awful and/or the bitrate is too low (or being statmuxed
down). Encoders like x264 have scenecut algorithms that are more advanced
than NLEs.

The way to fix your complaint is to help write a top-class MPEG-2 encoder:
