    Importing AVCHD Footage

    Pumpkin Person Level 1

      Hi there,

       

      I've just switched from FCP to Premiere (loving every bit of it so far), I've just shot a film on a Sony FS100 which uses the AVCHD codec. I've copied the SD cards 'private' directory to my hard drive.

       

      Premiere can recognise the files in the 'private' directory, but I was wondering if I should edit straight from this directory, or if I should use Adobe Prelude to capture them and turn them into movies - and if so should I transcode them (not quite sure what that means).

       

      Thanks very much!
