First off I am not a professional I edit as a hobby only. But I have been lucky, my first editing system was Liquid 6 then Avid Liquid 7. After that I when to FCP but, it was a G5 system and to edit HD I would have purchase another MAC which was out of the question. I build my own PC and took advantage of the Media Composer upgrade it was a no brainer saving over fifteen hundred dollars. I also got a great deal on Adobe Premier CS5 because I had Photoshop and thatís where I am at now. I video, and edit, events so I quest I could call myself an event video photographer. I have done some Weddings with a friend who does it part time. Anyway my camcorder is a Sony 550 AVCHD my question is any of you Avid editors edit AVCHD and if so what are your settings to transcode it? DNxHD 145, 1:1MXF or something else? I have completed projects on Premier but just edit on MC but for some reason I am not sure if it is me it seems I edit faster on it. Any opinions? Any advantages over one, or the other?
