It says they use the Final Cut series. iMovie '08 *should* be working with AVCHD. Others have said to be using the "log and transfer" method.
i am the proud owner of a new Canon HG21 and it captures video adequately for my needs.
The next part is a little trickier though ... how to edit the footage on my iMac !! with my previous mini-DV camcorder i was able to create some reasonable quality but simple movies in iMovie 06. The new AVCHD format doesnt seem to work with iMovie 06 or iMovie 08. When i tried to import it into iMovie08, the 3 minutes of footage on the camcorder took over 90 minutes to import, and iMovie06 didnt even recognise that there was a camera plugged in.
i have the Image Mixer software by Pixela which is only useable on a PC, and i would prefer to do my editing on the Mac if possible.
Can anyone recommend the right software / video editing program i should be using? i would prefer to stick to a simple basic software, rather than getting to upmarket if possible (eg FinalCut Studio)
thanks in advance
