Hi all

I have just bought a HD camcorder, which I intended to edit with FCE4. I have used FCE4 many times with MiniDV tape, but I have a problem when trying to log & transfer the AVCHD files. As soon as I select L&T from the menu, FCE quits. I cannot get any further with it.

I decided to try iMovie 11 (9.0.9), which copies the files fine as long as I record in 1080i. Once converted into AIC I can edit fine. The issue is, how do I export as AVCHD, in order to burn a DVD disc (as AVCHD) in order to play in my Blu-ray?

If anyone can help with the FCE4 issues, or can tell me how to export with iMovie 11, then I would much appreciate it.



Champagne for my real friends.......Real pain for my sham friends.
QUOTE Thanks
