I pruchased a new full HD Panasonic Camera TM-700 withfull HD AVCHD format.
I did some edition tests with Sony Vegas 9 pro, but when I tried to do a video longer that 5 minutes the PC memory get full and I stop rendering
1- What are the minimum and recommended PC requirements to edit with AVCHD?
My pc is: MOTHER ASUS P5QC, Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200, memory Kingston DDR2 2 Gb, video XFX 9800 GT 512MB DDR3 PCI-E 2.0, DVD-R/RW LG 22x SATA, HD 500 Gb/7200 SATA2 Western Digital
Windows XP 32 bits, Sony Vegas 9.0 32 bits.
I'm thinking about changing the RAM and to buy 4 Gb DDR3 .
4 Gb would be enough or do I need more RAM for AVCHD editing?
Does it worth to change the operating system and editing software to 64 bits?
Anyone is succesfuly editing AVCHD with a similar hardware?
2- Another question, when I will be able to edit the AVCHD y and save them in a DVD (Blueray is still to expensive where I live), any BlueRay player with AVCDH support would play them from a DVD? Would the Panasonic DMP-BD60 work (I know it can plat AVCDH from the SD card but I don't know if it can do it from a DVD?
Thanks a lot for your help!
