I have a JVC Everio 300 that records AVCHD files.
I guess my newb question is...if I want to do stuff in both Premiere Pro then After Effects CS5, do I need to convert this AVCHD file first?
I know CS5 Premiere Pro can import the AVCHD, but what do I export as to bring into After Effects.
Is there a converter out there that I should use before I should even bring this AVCHD file into these programs? One that doesnt degrade too much from the raw file. The raw footage looks great!
I am having a helluva time! I have been trying to just test on a minute long file that I want to be able to email. The end product comes out almost like a slide show. No smooth movements whats so ever!
I have a pretty new beefy computer, etc. So I dont think its my hardware. I am just new to the AVCHD world I guess! HELLP!
