    Default what is the best file for editing HD?

    Hi , I am new in the forum and new in the editing world and I am a bit struggling.
    I have just bought a Panasonic HDC-HS300 and I am using final cut 5.1 but final cut wouldn't accept M2ts files so I am converting them in mov files.
    Now , do I loose quality? Is this the best solution for editing Hd videos?

    Is it also normal that it takes 2 hours to convert 10 min video in mov?
    I have a Mac OsX version 10.4.11 - Processor 1.9 GHz Power Pc and 1 GB Ram.....is it ok for editing HD and is the Ram enough ?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
    Thanks

    I have great success with Upshift which does run on a Mac as long as the processor is Intel based!!! and it supports Final Cut 5.1 upwards too!!

    NewBlue AVCHD Upshift | Batch convert your AVCHD files into standard .M2T files.

    Your AVCHD is converted into an HDV file at 50mbs so the quality is still good!!!

    Your mac is low spec when it comes to working with HD video. See if you can get a mac version of Sony Vegas Movie Platinum 9 (try a 30 day trial) as it is becoming more popular with windows pc owners. It will open the mts and m2ts files without you having to change them to something else first.
