Consider my socks blown off. I mean... WOW. I never had any idea that
editing HD files can be so fast!
I took the advice and transcoded a few files to DNxHD. I am hard-pressed to
see the difference in image quality...
But when it comes to editing the video... I can see why AVCHD get so little

I'm going to be stubborn, and keep my AVCHD files anyways.. who knows, maybe
one day AVCHD can directly be editied just as fast? But I am going to
transcode all of my AVCHD files for editing now. ( I can already hear my CPU
going: noooooooo! ) hehe

Have a fantastic week.

P.S. kdenlive has just become my new favorite video editor.
