I know there is a ton of info on editing AVCHD out there, but most of it goes over my head. I'm looking for a simple answer please.I know there must be other people like me out there who just do basic editing in WMM, of videos like their kids soccer games and b-day parties,who have upgraded to a new camcorder only to find that they can no longer do these basic editing tasks. I know there are programs like Sony Vegas Movie Studio that can edit AVCHD, but it sounds like they require a powerful pc and a lot of processing time. I have also tried converting from AVCHD to a format that I can use in WMM, but the resulting videoturns out choppy. I don't really need to record in HD since I can only burn to standard DVD, so should I try Vegas or just shelve my new Sony Handy Cam and buy a camcorder that records in a format that I can use in WMM? Are there even any still available that don't record in AVCHD? Thanks for any advice..
