    Default Panasonic SD600 Editing .m2ts

    Hi,

    I have a Panasonic SD600 camcorder. I'm shooting in AVCHD format.
    Obviously, I can't edit the file.

    I have Adobe Premiere Pro. (not cs4/5 etc).
    Is there are other software out there which is good and will let me edit .m2ts? Preferably free or not too expensive!!

    Otherwise, how to I edit in Adobe without losing quality?

    Thanks,
    Will

    If you Google "Canopus Edius Neo" you can download a free 30 day trial. It's as good as you will get for AVCHD editing.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the advice. I've downloaded the software and it is excellent! I am already getting used to it and will be purchasing the full version soon.

    @MB Re: Edius

    cut from another thread ....

    I thought I'd give it a try to see if it lived up to its advertising splash .... "edit Anything"
    Well, bugger me it certainly does ! and i mean anything in REAL time too

    you can throw a mixture of any format on the time line and they play/scrub in real time that's at original speed, slowed down, speeded up ..... transitions too

    Ive been trying to get it to crash for the last hour but it hasnt

    seems to good to be true !

    only down side i can see is the learning curve........ Are you using this as your main editor now MB ?

    Welcome to the secret world of Edius Ian, I tried it out last year when I was looking for something to replace the ever failing Pinnacle. I thought it was good but lacked some of the features I have found with Vegas. I tried Neo and the Pro version. I found that Neo is the same as the pro version, it just lacks some of the features like the good titler, some Fx, some transition etc. It's a real bargain price for and great for people who struggle with AVCHD etc. The other thing that impressed me was the Canopus codes.

    Grass Valley, as far as I know is actually quite big in TV circles in the states, I don't know why they don't seem to have the recognition over in the UK. May be the market is a bit small for them to bother spending big bucks on promoting it properly over here.

    Sorry I meant to write codecs not codes. The lossless codec is very good.

    I've been thinking of looking into funding for avid Media Composer this year at some point, but it's a lot of money. I have heard bits and pieces of good stuff about Edius in the past and could take a look.

    When you import a file into Edius does it create a version of the file with it's own codec (as with avid imports) or refer to the original (as with avid's AMA link)?

    As far as I remember and things are a little foggy for me now, it will makes Proxy files if you ask it to but doesn't do this automatically.
