comment Best transcoding path using Sorenson Squeeze for AVCHD video?
You are correct that there are two separate goals. But I'm not sure that points to editing in a lossy format such as MPEG. It sounds like I need to talk with the folks at the local public broadcast station and see what they do in terms of standards and editing platforms.

Remember that MPEG is lossy, so for long-term archival purposes, no MPEG level is going to be desirable. We are currently exploring Metroska (sp?).

comment Reasonable hardware for basic video editing?
You are right--looking again at Adobe's site, it seems most likely that the problem is with Premiere Elements 10/Mac (we've migrated systems since Q orig. asked) not importing the MP4 gracefully--we can play the files w/Quicktime, fine. It's when in PE that they are out of sync. See new Q!

Yeah, I think the general answer is "64-bit system" not 32-bit system at this point. Thanks.

comment Reasonable hardware for basic video editing?
Very interesting. We comfortably meet or exceed those specs on this machine. Now I am wondering if we changed something on the hard disk side. Most of the work is being done on a hard disk attached, not with firewire, but with usb 2.0. I wonder if that is introducing the problem?

I'm not sure, because we've had problems even when not transcoding (e.g., I had some mp4 clips from which I trimmed the beginning and end and resaved). We have 4GB RAM, but this is 32-bit Windows XP, so that means that the OS can access only 3.2GB
