>>You can avoid cutting Long GOP video by transcoding your AVCHD footage to Apple ProRes before you begin editing.
I do not know how Apple ProRes compares to Cineform. I know that both work on a Mac.
>>I understand that AVCHD files are ten times larger when captured.
Actually .MTS files are pretty small. The purpose of Cineform (and ProRes, I think) is to ‘relax’ the compression and improve color space at the same time, making it much easier for the processors to handle the files, while significantly improving color.
