Happily bought my hi spec sony vaio windows 8 laptop and my Sony FS700 top of the range camcoder, got premier cs6, all ready to enter the next phase of hi quality video production for my video art work. I find i am constantly plagued, first cs6 doesnt accept the camcorder avchd files, Then i give up and use windows movie maker, try importing there, windows movie maker crashes everytime!There must be a way a piece of software that allows me to edit avchd to the quality it actually is when i record it! Any help?
