    Default Please can you advise on software for my needs?

    Hi. Apologies if this seems really basic. I've read loads of stuff and am now confused!

    I have just bought a panasonic HDC-SD9 and am recording at max resolution, i.e. 1920 x 1080 in AVCHD. This is what I want to do:

    1.copy the recordings to my PC and cut out a few unwanted bits.
    2.save the results without any loss of quality. It does not need to be copied to a DVD, playback on the PC is fine.
    Maybe I will want to add the odd still picture and a background track.
    I have no interest in fancy transitions, titles etc.

    The key thing is to not loose the quality (otherwise why bother with a camera of this resolution in the first place?) and for it to be as easy as possible to use.

    Is something like Sony Vegas platinum ok or not? I have read conflicting things about whether it will output this quality. If so, v8 or 9?
    I wondered about this:
    Amazon.co.uk: Sony Vegas Movie Studio +DVD 8 Platinum Edition (Student / Teacher version): Software

    You help would be much appreciated.

    I'm using a Canon HF10 and the simplest program I've found is "Ulead Video Studio 11.5 Plus" it has a good selection of output options, I've tried different versions of Sony Vegas and found them all more difficult to use, Pinnacle Studio 12 Ultimate is so flaky it's unusable, it would be a good program if there was some way of stopping it from crashing all the time. there are some tutorials on Vimeo.com that might be useful.
