Can you explain this persons second post? http://www.kenstone.net/discussions/read.php?3,38384 The person in the second post is saying if you add an effect, title etc to avchd you lose quality. I've never had this happen. What is this person talking about? Is this strictly a Final Cut problem and not a premiere problem?
I also keep reading that transcoding does nothing to help. Read this. http://www.provideocoalition.com/tra...color-premiere
Why would transcoding make the footage worse?? Another article I can't seem to find right now mentioned avchd had color artifacts when color correcting, such as banding and blocking with added noise.
