Been lurking through the forums here for a while ... I have a particular problem that some may have experienced..
I have the cam mentioned in the subject. I am trying to edit on my PC without much luck. I am running the following computer:
Vista Home Prem 64-bit
Intel Core2 Quad 6600 2.60 GHz
8 GB RAM
NVidia GForce 8800 GT 512 MB Video
I have been trying to edit my AVCHD video in multiple editing programs, including Pinnacle Studio Ultimate 12, Adobe Premiere Elements 8.0 (Trial), and Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 (Trial).
I have been disappointed with the speed and stability of editing in both the Pinnacle Studio and Elements. Premiere Pro is just OK. I feel like my system should support editing video without having to wait minutes for clips to load. In addition to long wait times, when I preview clips, or watch my current edit in the monitor, it freezes, then later tries to "catch up". This is annoying at best, in reality detremental to getting any real work done.
I am willing to invest in making this work if there are solutions. I know Pre Pro CS4 is optimized for 64-bit, so that may be my best bet, but I'm not sure I'm willing to put $800 into software.
But, if someone has a hardware/software platform that works GREAT for AVCHD editing, please let me know that--I would be willing to plunge into something that would really do the trick (I'm open to PC/Mac/Linux).....
Thanks a lot! Cheers!
