    AVCHD-files in Elements 8 vs. Premiere CS4 ?

    sheetsofsound

      I have Premiere CS3 but since it cannot edit AVCHD files, I contemplated spending $299 to upgrade to CS4 or $150 to purchase Premiere Elements 8. I ended up saving $150 and getting Elements 8.

       

      However, like other folks, I've found that playback and rendering are so slow as to be completely useless.

       

      Anyone know if CS4 has the same issue? I could still get a refund on Elements 8 and spend the extra money on Premiere CS4 if it's faster...
