File Format Question from an FCP User

Sorry to butt in here .... but I was wondering what Video File formats/codecs Premiere Pro CS5 can edit if Camera files are AVCHD/H264 and you don't want to work in native mpeg4/h264 for performance reasons?

In FCP the app converts certain flavors of AVCHD/H264 to a choice of Apple Pro Res Quicktime codecs. Is there a commonly used equivalent choice in Premiere Pro? Or do users transcode to HDV or DVCProHD? Do they use Windows Quicktime, or WMV or even AVI?

Thanks for any curiosity busting information!

Re: File Format Question from an FCP User
Premiere Pro CS5 with nVidia CUDA card does not suffer from performance problems when editing AVCHD footage, there's no need to convert.

If you really insist, you can work with any uncompressed format, HDV, all flavours of XDCAM, DVCProHD or go for Cineform.
