Help with SX40 video on computer
even with my newish computer I find that when I process AVCHD footage with latest Quicktime I still get the jitters. What people used to do was convert it to an intermediate codec (Apple Intermediate Codec, Neoscene, Avid, ) or and then work on it. There is also MPEG Clipstream free ware that is very good.
The recent iMovie 11, processes AVCHD normally on the 32bit Macs without a problem
