    Specs:
    27" quad-core iMac, 8GB RAM, 2TB HD...15" MBP w/ 4GB RAM...etc.
    AVCHD editing software recommendations
    I'm considering buying the Panasonic HDC-HS700 (or TM700) or the Canon flagship S21 HD cam.

    I've looked on the Canadian Apple website for support by iLife 11 and Final Cut Express 4.0. iLife 11 won't support full HD at 60p. Not sure if I would have to be recording at 24p. Though if this camera can do 60p...I'd prefer to find software that supports this. Then there's mention of image stabilization issues.

    They didn't say much more for Final Cut Express 4.0.

    What is the best Mac video editing software out today that will support all AVCHD formats (especially all those of the Panasonic HDC-HS700)?

    Thanks.

    Right after I posted the original post I Googled this and found out there is a codec converter I can use to use the file created using the Panasonic HS700 with Mac supported editing software like Final Cut. Here's the link...

    Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac-Convert/merge AVCHD MTS/M2TS files, convert AVCHD Lite

    But, I'd love to know still if there is a photo editing software you guys would highly recommend, that is Mac compatible and would allow me to avoid using a converter.
