One should always choose a Sequence Preset that matches the source footage 100%. This might mean choosing the Desktop Preset, and then customizing the attributes to match.
The only slightly different take on this would be if one shot HD and then were to let the camera spit out an SD file. Still, one would be matching that output file 100%.
Does your camera shoot full AVCHD? If not, then the Desktop Preset w/ customization would be the better way to go.
Thanks for your informative and to-the-point response!
My Vixia HFS10 manual states -
Movies: AVCHD Video compression: MPEG-4 AVC/H.264;
Audio compression: Dolby Digital 2ch
* Recordings made with the [PF24], [PF30] frame rate are converted and recorded on the memory as 60i
I can also state that when I capture in the 'MXP' mode, that I am capturing true 1920x1080 (i.e. not 1440x1080i anamorphic).
Does this qualify as 'full AVCHD'?

Yes it will. As of CS4.2, full AC3 support is included too, so you should not have any issues.
Now, AVCHD does require a lot of CPU horsepower to edit smoothly.
Hi Hunt (I just noticed you sign with 'Hunt' so I figure you prefer that to 'Bill'),
Thanks for your help!
It does not matter to me. I answer to Bill, to Hunt, to the_wine_snob, or to many other monikers.
Bill, or Hunt work well, as they are mono-syllabic and easy to type...
Just hope that something helped you,
BTW - which answer was the most useful?
