Interesting report.
I'll probably move in that direction whenever I build a new system.

I also have a Core2Duo processor in combo with CS5. What I do is use adobe media encoder to convert AVCHD files to MPEG2 files. This provides an easy to edit file while maintaining a low datarate. Works great for me.

Hi Brian
Thanks for your reply. After your done editing do you render out from the MPEG2 files or replace the MPEG2 file with the orig AVCHD files then render out.
Thanks again
Harry

This is my workflow:

1. I convert the original AVCHD .MTS files on the SD card directly to .m2t files using Adobe Media Encoder using the MPEG 2 Blu-ray preset in encoder.
2. I edit the newly created .m2t files in Premiere as normal.
3. I render effects, etc.. on the .m2t files
4. I export to whatever final format needed. If I'm making a master file, I use the same MPEG-2 preset in encoder, using a high bit-rate.

Many may assume that encoding to MPEG-2 again reduces quality. But I've found that as long as the bitrate is high, the quality reduction is barely noticeable if at all. The Blu-ray preset in encoder allows up to 40Mb which is plenty high enough for me.

If you live anywhere near a MicroCenter, they have Q9300s for $140 - pretty cheap to double your CPU power.

Brian:
If you are going to a DVD what format would you use for that? I am using Adobe Media Incoder CS5.
Thanks for your feedback
