    Will Premiere Pro CS5.5 resolve the problem of editing Panasonic 1080/60p footage?

      According to Adobe....the following is a CS5.5 feature:



      Native AVCHD support


      Import and natively edit AVCHD content from Sony, Panasonic, and Canon cameras without transcoding or rewrapping the content. Use the Media Browser to browse clips and view metadata — including metadata from Panasonic AVCCAM cameras.



      However, does this mean we can natively edit footage shot at 1080/60p on the Panasonic (TM-700, TM-900) or are we still stuck with needing to "unwrap" this footage because of Panasonic's proprietary compression system on the 60p footage?


      I'd love to buy one of those camcorders but if its going to be a pain to edit in Premiere Pro...then maybe I'll wait or get some other brand that doesnt require all this hassle.


      Can anyone provide some feedback?  Adobe?
