I have been having difficulty with PE7 crashing and not handling the above files.
Solution seems to be using AVCHD Uplift program which converts the files to MPEG and in turn make editing easy. The site is http://www.newbluefx.com/avchd-upshift.html I would be interested in learning if anyone knows any downside to using this format.
From my viewpoint - I can now combine my still photos and video using PE7 which I could not do before - having tired several suggested alternatives.
Thanks Steve - yes I have now read these. The solution with the AVCHD
Upshift program is quick and given that I have only a 2.2 GHZ dual core
processor with 4 gig of RAM, the $US49.95 has been a cheap solution unless I
have misjudged something?
