I am attempting to edit AVCHD video from a Sony nex VG 20 camcorder using
Magix movie edit pro 17. Camera automatically downloads video into Sony PMB
software (so far,so good ) but when edit pro collects it then displays it in
edit monitor image is stilted and jerky.
I'm using windows XP and a compaq pc with 2GB RAM and 256 MB graphics
card. The PC is single core and 5 years old.
It's given great results with Sony cassette camera and Magix edit pro 10 in
the past which delivered HD video in a continuous stream straight to the editing software, unlike the AVCHD which goes via the Sony PMB and arrives
in endless separate clips or files.
I'm getting nowhere fast and getting the impression my old system has
insufficient graphics and RAM for the job.
Any advice to help me out of my dead end would be a lifesaver !
