You'll need video editing programs such as Sony Vegas, Pinnacle Studio, Corel Video Studio, and others to edit the AVCHD footage. You COULD use the supplied software, but it is limited to very basic functions. You could try that out first before buying software. To view AVCHD video, you could do a simple Google search for "AVCHD viewer" and choose from the many options. I have not tried those programs.
I'm planning to buy a Canon Vixia HF10 AVCHD camcorder, and I'm wondering what do i need in my computer so it can Play Full 1080p HD Videos in avchd format without problems? Also what Video Card is Recommended?
I'm asking this because i went to the Canon websites and check the Vixia HF10 Specs and I found Some Sample Videos they have, I choose the HD1080(540mb) video sample they have Here, Its in the Bottom of the page where it says Video Samples:
And now I'm Concern because when i try to play it, it doesn't play smooth, is choppy. I have a powerful PC so what do i need to add or change, if its the video card, what video card is recommended??
My PC Specs:
Quad Core Processor Q9550 @2.8ghz
512mb Nvidia 8800GT Video Card
4gb of Memory Ram
Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit
