Wondering how people edit AVCHD footage. I am using MACs and I use the Apple Intermediate Codec to convert to mov. Anybody know any other ways?

Thanks

I was interested in this also. I am looking into getting the new HMC150 but wanted to be able to use both Apple and Adobe Programs without any problems.

I know that adobe does not support avchd, and I'm not sure what premier, after effects, and encore's deal is with apple prores 422, but I am pretty sure that both final cut studio 2 programs and adobe production premium 2 programs will run DVCproHD just great.

This is what I was thinking...I could capture my AVCHD files right off the card into Apple Pro Res 422 using FCP, then maybe use compressor to convert those files to DVCProHD and be able to use them in any of the adobe or apple programs.

Any thoughts on this? I know it would take a long time but would it work?

My setup would probably be

mac pro 8 core 2.8ghz
4 GB ram
adobe production premium
final cut studio 2

apple requires you convert to pro res to edit avchd, premier pro cs3 requires the purchase of an expensive plugin to convert the files.

and in either solution going between apple and adobe programs wouldnt work

edit: or you could get the panasonic transcoder but that locks you into 1080/60i and defeats the purpose of having a camcorder that records other formats such as 1080/30p 24p and 720/30p 24p and 60p

Hmm, in that case, yes, you can take the pro res out to DVCProHd either in compressor or just in FCP to work on PP.
