I am a total beginner, creating amateur videos.
I am using a Sony Handycam HDR PJ30VE which shoots footage in AVCHD format.
In view of the fact that I do own or have access to a Mac, what is the best software (as affordable as possible) for editing (or at least trimming) the raw footage, as quickly and efficiently as possible, but without losing quality at this early stage.
To save valuable time, I want to send only the best scenes to an editor.
All advice much appreciated.
(I'm based in the Midlands, UK, btw)
