OK... Here's the BIG problem I have... We had a new addition to the family (baby) so I decided to get a videocamera. Wanted something future proof, so got a high definition memory card based camera: Sony CX11 Needed a new computer, had an old PC, but for some reason went to the other side and purchased a Macbook- I heard they were very good at editing video (and it is). Within 2 weeks I had completely filled my 250GB hard drive with all this movie footage! I need to get it off my Macbook and free up my hard drive! Editing in iMovie... no probs. Burning in i DVD... few glitches, but got there in the end. Cool, no probs you think right... NO I have a 1080p TV screen, and a PS3. So i'm recording in 1080i HD footage, but I'm losing all the HD quality!!! The DVD image quality is so poor in comparison with the quality I get when I plug my camcorder into my TV. Its frustrating. I cant delete the footage off my macbook without preserving the HD. Its really important footage of the first few days of my baby's life. And the memory is a killer! 25min of footage (4GB of AVCHD on my camcorder) is converted into about 20GB of Quicktime footage in iMovie. THAT's FIVE TIMES THE SPACE!!!! So I'm running out of space on my hard drive, and Macbook apparently isn't compatible with Blu-ray (so I hear!). OK so I need some urgent help. What do I do? I have sourced a possible drive: the LG-BE06LU10-External-LightScribe-Blu-Ray Does anyone have any recommendations for a drive? Or have any experience of using this drive? It wasnt designed for Mac but a couple of reviews say its compatible. Is there any recommended software out there that will edit AVCHD and burn Blu-ray Discs reliably? I have read multiple reviews that say Toast 10 is not very good. Any alternatives out there? Any Advice??? Help!!!
