AVCHD playing onto Viera TV after editing?

I am assuming that I will be able to record AVCHD with Panasonic HC X920 camcorder then place the SD card into the Panasonic Viera TV and play it back at full HD.

What I am not sure about is will the same apply after editing the video. If it will not perhaps somebody can point out the pitfalls (apart from powerful computer) and any solutions or guide me to the easiest (safest methods).

Thank you.

Well, after you make edits to a video, your video editor software will need to render and export the video with the new changes that you made to it.   So it will create a brand new video file with your changes incorporated into it.  Since you will be able to specify in your editor software what video format you want to export the new file to, this should be no compatibility problem at all for you.  For you will easily be able to choose a format that is compatible with your TV.

I can't speak for your Viera TV, but I can play edited videos, even ones at 1080p60, using my Panasonic BDT-220 BluRay player without any issues.   I export them as "MP4" files with a bit rate no higher than that allowed for AVCHD (28Mbits/sec), navigate to the folder they're in to select which one to play, and they play without any problems.

I use Premiere Pro to edit and render my videos.

Re: AVCHD playing onto Viera TV after editing?

Thank you both for your response. Everything sounds straightforward; I was concerned that the manual for the camcorder states that the folder structure must be correct and suggests that video recorded on other devices may not work. Once edited, as mentioned above, it is technically not recorded by the camcorder but the PC. I am used to the old DV tapes and have not used AVCHD.

My BluRay player will recognize an AVCHD folder structure - it shows the clips within it and it will treat clips that span more than one file as single contiguous videos as per the AVCHD specs.   But it also allows me to navigate the folder structure and select other video clips as well.

Thank you for that additional reassurance.
