Re: I have a Vixia HF M500. Can anyone recommend software to edit AVCHD movie files and burn them to

How does an i5 compare to i7 in editing AVCHD without a dedicated graphics card?

The i7 is faster than i5 of course.  You'll be able to play AVHCD with either in FCP X (Final Cut Pro).  I've got an iMac i5 and a macbook retina i7.  They'll both play the straight AVHCD just fine but when you start adding text, edits and such, both machines will have to render to play perfectly smooth.  They'll play but not perfectly.  You really need to create proxy or optimized media.

I tried a real short project without the transcoding and really suffered editing the raw AVHCD footage, even on an i7.  If you do the transcode, they'll play without any stuttering.

Thanks for your input!  My Core2Duo screens the AVCHD just fine- I am asking about rendering strength / time. With Corel VideoStudio (or Sony Vegas Pro) is an i5 plus a GeForce faster than an i7 with no graphics card?  And how much difference does a Quadro card make over a GeForce? Over a Radeon?
