This is for Premiere Pro Wiki http://premierepro.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page but has lots of information
The link at http://ppro.wikia.com/wiki/Troubleshooting has questions at the end, the first question includes a link to GSPOT to find out the codec used in your file
Editing HD takes a LOT of computer power... you need to provide details of what you have
I only do SD, described at http://www.pacifier.com/~jtsmith/ADOBE.HTM
Thanks for that, I'll have a read through them.
My system is:
OS: WinXP Pro SP3 (32 bit)
Board : ASUS Commando Mobo
CPU: Intel Core2Duo EN6700 (2x 2.67GHz)
RAM: 2GB Corsair DDR2 XMS2-6400
GPU: ASUS 8600 GTS GPU
Audio: M-Audio FW1814
Several SATAII drives (lots of free space)
It is not the newest system, but it generally does the job. This is my first time doing anything with video though, so I'm not sure how it stands up to that as a system. I keep everything tidy and up to date though.
Yes, you are dealing with AVCHD (the .mts extension usually indicates so).
You are under powered with a Dual Core, and would need at least a Quad Core with a chunk of Ram.
You could try converting to an intermediate HD format, HDV, and try this on your existing system.
See this link for options:
This may reduce the CPU resources needed just enough for you to slip by with your existing setup...
