I never said that AVCHD was designed to be an edited format, I said the difference in the last year is that Edius will edit AVCHD where as a year ago it could not. That is a huge difference for me.
I think that I have too found a solution(-: I have been using Adobe Premiere (currently using CS3) for years and now Adobe CS5 is projected to launch in April 2010. I just watch saw a sneak preview of Premiere CS5 and the native support of AVCHD files. Check out this link Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 Mercury Playback Engine Sneak Peek | Adobe CS5

By the way, this is for PC usage; however, I hope that I will get the same effect for the MAC side.

With the specs for the Mercury engine, it should be able to play 4k h.264 files on the timeline!!

One of my machines meets the spec, but that's a heck of a machine they are asking for to be compliant. Even more than Avid is asking for.

Edius Neo plays native now just with software and the same booster technology will be in Edius 5.5 next month. Agreed, prefered machine is an i7 quad core but nothing like the spec for Mercury engine!!
