Question:AVCHD workflow for Mac-Transcode Sony PJ10 AVCHD to MOV for Avid MC

Summary: In this article you will get to know the best way to transcode Sony PJ10

AVCHD to MOV DNxHD for Avid Media Composer.

Sony HDR-PJ10 Review:

The good: The Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10's built-in projector and stereo speakers are

very convenient for sharing home movies. Plus, the HD camcorder has the same wide-

angle lens, built-in USB cable, and good automated performance as its projector-

free siblings.

The bad: If you don't plan to use the projector, the rest of the camcorder's

performance and feature set are a bit underpowered for the money.

60p recording, I recorded some footages when I travel. Now I want to import Sony

HDR-PJ10 AVCHD files to Avid Media Composer for editing, but I always encounter

problems in the importing process. What video format and codec should I use so that

I can edit PJ10 AVCHD in Avid natively and smoothly?"
