I apologize for the confusion. The AVCHD format utilizes MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 (AVC) video compression. The file saved into a computer will not play as it is. You can think of it as a file similar to a RAW file. Current versions of iMovie 09, Final Cut Pro 3, Adobe Premiere CS5 or Elements 8, and Sony Vegas HD can play the HF21’s AVCHD file. There are some limitations for video shot with the camera’s Cinema or 24p mode. In addition, an AVCHD file requires a great deal of computer processing power and space to open the large files.
