Hi, all


What video editing software can be used with Mac OS 10.6.8 to process movies in AVCHD format?


I'm currently using an old version of iMovie (6.0.3), and it can't import the AVCHD format files from a new HD camcorder with it.  An alternative is to convert files into MP4 format, but the degradation in this process is considerable.


Final Cut Pro X exceeds the capacity limitations of my iMac unit, so it's ruled out as an option.  iMovie 11 can't be run from this PC for the same reasons.  On top of this, iMovie 11 can't handle AVCHD files.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Intel Core 2 Duo, 1.5 GB RAM
