Thread: Getting Started with CS4 & AVCHD...

    Default Getting Started with CS4 & AVCHD...


    I'm looking at getting a new consumer level AVCHD Camera & High end PC (Quad Core CPU, 4GB RAM, high end GPU etc) soon.
    Using Premiere Pro CS4. I also use a 30" LCD Monitor.

    I want to copy my 1920x1080 videos from my AVCHD Camera onto my PC (Big 1TB HDD) Then work with them in CS4.

    Should I convert all the videos to uncompressed format?
    Or will CS4 run good while editing with the original format from these modern HDV AVCHD Cameras? (I'm under the impression that compressed files run bad in PP & become out of sync with audio?)

    Do I need anything else? Additional codecs? What about this Cineform Prospect HD program? Its very $$$ & I'm not shore If I really need it?

    Finally, what is the best format & codec to render the final project out in? I want to watch it back on my PC in 1920x1080.

    Much advice is needed, Thanks.
