Speaking of forgetting about the rolling edit tool, both FCP and PPro are so feature and function rich that sometimes simple things slide off your cognitive radar and it can seem harder or more time consuming to do simple tasks.

Another aspect of how well things work -- John's 5 second correction versus the 15 second task --- really isn't something that a simple recommendation can answer. A lot of finding out "how quick" is going to be a matter of personal preferences.

Robert recommended downloading trials to suss out personal preferences and that is the only thing that will really let John decide which program he wants to use.

Haven't I read that FCP has difficulties ingesting AVCHD without conversion to intermediate formats such as ProRes and Cineform? (Depending on how much color correcting you do on the video, and how many layers etc. of effects, and how new your editing machine is, the conversion to intermediates might be something you would want to do anyway.)

You'll need intermediates to test out the PPro CS5 trial version with your AVCHD footage. (At least, when I scoped out the CS5 trial last May, it wouldn't work with AVCHD; I had to install the purchased software license before I could do that.) But you should be able to test PPro out with some of your AVCHD footage by running it through a trial version of NeoScene or NeoHD from the Cineform website.

The actual mechanics of editing --- such as moving a multi-cam edit point --- are the same whether you use DV, HDV AVCHD, intermediates, or whatever. Working with the intermediate files will get you the feel for how well the program works or doesn't work for what you want to do.
