I’m about to purchase thePanasonic AG-HMC150. The only problem I see is that many editing programs don’t support the AVCHD and AVCCAM technology. Right now I use Adobe Premiere Elements 4.0. Can I use this program to edit AVCHD? If not what editing program would be a good program in general and one that would alsosupport this technology?
I think FCP supports AVCHD now.
Vegas Pro 8 – I’ve been editing native MTS files for a while now. If your computer is not up to the compression, VASST and NewBlueFX have a package called UpShift which will convert AVCHD tolightly compressed MPEG-2 – It’s not a bad deal and I may be going down that road myself (I just lost access to my Core 2 Duo box and am back on my Pentium 4 2.53ghz one).
Yeah. I am with birdcat. I use Vegas Pro 8, and i edit the footage very smoothly.
OH, and Adobe Premiere Pro SC4 also suports AVCHD natively.
Three votes for Sony Vegas 8 Pro.
After all, didn’t Sony start AVCHD? It works best with their software. Some people can’t figure it out, but it actually isn’t very hard. Vegas makes it easy. i warn you though, there is a learning curve.
