  • AVCHD And Edius Editing

    Does anyone know of any tricks that I can do to get a PC to playback AVCHD video? I would like to cut clips (and then just convert those clips to an HQ Lossless) in Edius 4.61, but I'm finding the playback impossible to cut with. I'm basically getting a play speed of .7 or so.

    What I've done so far:

    - Raised the buffer in the Application Settings->Playback to 15 Frames
    - Changed my RT Buffers in the Hardware settings to 512 MB (That made me use up about 1GB of RAM total for Edius...but RAM isn't an issue for me.
    - I also tried converting the files using the free converter. That just takes too long for my uses.

    So is there any way for me to lower the playback quality, and work with this AVCHD clip?

    Thanks!

    Use the AVCHD to Canopus HQ Converter V2.10 to convert your AVCHD material to Canopus HQ for editing. To preview AVCHD clips, use the "AVCHDPRV Preview" utility that comes with the converter.

      Hi

      I have used the converter and it is actually pretty good. It takes about 1:1 in time (on my quadcore), the faster the CPU the fatser convertion of courrse :-)

        So I've got Dual Cores, and it's giving me about 1:2.5 or so. You're saying with a Quad Core, I should get alot closer to 1:1.... That would be almost enough to start using that converter.

        I had tried that converter, but ya...with the conversion time, and 20 hours of footage to convert, I'd rather not convert it all if I can avoid it. :)

          The version of the converter, and how you use it, makes all the difference with regards to how long the process of conversion takes.

            With my dual core it was taking 2.5 time now with a quad core Q9450 it is less than realtime if you drag the file over the icon.I started by right clicking and converting this only uses one core so back to 2.5 times.
            If you just want to play and cut pieces then the Sony Browser software that comes with the Sony AVCHD cams does a good job of cuts editing. Essentially copying selected pieces between in and out points. Vegas 8b will edit AVCHD on the timeline native probably the fastest if you just want to cut a lot of small sections out of 20 hours.
