I am going crazy here. I am pinned to the floor!
I think I put myself not only the bleeding edge of software technology- but on its very sharp sword tip!
Pulling the blade out of its sheath
Bought a Canon HF100 - Loved the camera - size, picture, quality - extra features - no tape required! (Wow)
Running my finger across the blade
Got a nasty cut - when I found out my editing software (Avid Liquid 7.2) would not edit AVCHD format.
Riding the tip of the blade while hurdling to the floor
Started my search on the Internet - looking for video editing software that would work natively with AVCHD format. Received disappointing results in my search and trials- (jerky video, freezes, loooong convesion times, limited editing) - tried software from Sony, Pinnacle, Corel with similar disappointing results. I even considered Adobe with poor results for a while(came to conclusion, way to expensive and complicated - plus - software suffers from "window's "pop-disease" - got to pop open a new window everytime you want todo something- they should be paying me to use it!). Even tried conversion software to convert AVCHD to a usable format -still no satisfaction.
Nowhere I am,pinned to the floor with the bleeding edge of technology through my body - waiting for AVCHD video editing software that works natively with the AVCHD format with no jerks, freezes and stops.
QUESTION: Can or has anyone (who is not affiliated with a manufacturer - I'm looking for real life user) had proven success (with great performance and no glitches)with your Video Editing software (or conversion software) which works natively with AVCHD fileswith speed, accuracy and knock-your-socks-off performance? If so, please, share with me thesoftware, the PC you are using and the configuration. I am loosing blood fast - help heal a poor soul who needs you success to keep going!
