    Prel 8 - HD? - New Camcorder




      Does the new Elements 8 support AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) files from HD camcorders?


      Thanks a lot

          The short answer is YES. The longer answer is, it depends. Many mfgrs. use AVCHD pretty liberally, and freely make changes to the format. Most work well, but some do not. Mostly, one will encounter issues with the FPS and Interlaced or Progressive.


          Which camera do you have, and what are the full specs. of the AVCHD files produced. Those answers will tell the tale.


          Good luck,




          PS - for AVCHD, one needs tons of CPU horsepower - no way around that. If you do not have fast Quad-core, or better, a fast i7, forget it.

              This is very likely to a couple of setting in the forum, regarding e-mail notifications. This ARTICLE will tell you the places to look to make the necessary changes, so that you do not get those e-mail notifications.


              There are a couple of places that one must look, and then settings to adjust.


              Hope that this helps,
