I have a Canon Legria HV40. This is the specs for my PC:

I have Pinnacle Studio 14 Ultimate, but struggle. The capturing is sometimes erratic and if I capture in m2t format, Pinnacle does not recognize the clips. In the past I even had problems rendering.

So I have decided to get a new programme. What can be recommended? Vegas or something else. Please note that I have Windows 7.

I would like a programme to do it all, in the past I used Panasonic to capture and edit, TMPGenc to encode, etc and had good results. I do not know why I struggle so much with Pinnacle.

I captured the other day using HDVsplit and it worked like a charm.

Any advice on programmes will be appreciated.
