Thread: Best editing software for Sony AVCHD

  1. #1

    Default Best editing software for Sony AVCHD

    I'm a long time (Windows XP) Photoshop user who is just getting into HD video with a Sony SR1 and I'm looking for a software package that natively edits AVCHD and writes it to Blu-ray. For the moment, I can't imagine I will need one of the $600+ packages (I can always upgrade there later). What are my options (I've read a little about Pinnacle, Ulead and Sony's Vegas but ended up more confused than before I started <...sigh>).

    Any thoughts? And any thoughts on the need or wisdom of going with a 64bit XP or Vista?

    Thanks, Michael

    Vegas 8 pro or Vegas 7 will edit AVCHD, V8 will burn Blu Ray straight from the time line, no menu's

    I know about Vegas, but from the comparison chart on thier site, it looks as if only the full price version writes to Blu-ray and the two lesser versions don't. I'm trying to attach a clip of the relevant part of the chart (don't know if it will work, never tried it before). Do you read it the same way I do?

    If the clip doesn't make it, here's the link to the chart:

    Thanks for that, Fam. Looks as if it's still too early to go with Vista-64bit.
