I have JVC GZ-HD 300 and want to edit video.
From the JVC website...
"With recording speed set as: XP, SP or EP video files are created in AVCHD format and have .MTS extension. With FHD or 1440 CBR recording speeds MPEG2 format files are created with .TOD extension.."
I need software that will edit both AVCHD and MPEG2 with those file extensions.
All I really want to do is seamlessly link footage together and add music and add pop up text.
JVC customer service said cyberlink powerdirector 6 will work for me, but you can't trust those guys on the phone. I can only find powerdirector 8 for sale. I have heard that powerdirector 8 has a lot of problems and glitches so I'm asking an expert opinion.
Tell me what I need to buy. And since what I want to do is so basic, are there any free downloads out there?
