“I use Canopus Edius 4.6 to edit videos on Windows computer. It works great until I want to edit the AVCHD videos from my new camcorder. The new camcorder I recently purchased is Sony NEX-VG10 which supports interchangeable lens with DSLR. The videos are shot in 1920x1080 at 30p. However, the DSLR footage does not work on Edius 4.6.”
