I like most were wowed when SJ showed us the AVCHD camera that he used in Imovie. I went out and bought one and like most soon discovered I had no way to watch these edited HD movies on my brand new Plasma. Well I solved this by using my XBOX 360 and 360 connect software, not a very elegant solution but where there is a will there is a way. Now if we get Blue Ray we will be able to burn to disc and watch on the plasma. One of the reasons blue ray is so cool is, you can burn native AVCHD files to a regular dvd and it will play high Def on a BLue ray playeror PS3. We will need software solutions to convert our AIC codec back to native AVCHD, if it can even be done, or we need for final cut to edit the AVCHD files natively. The later being the best route with small file sizes and excellent quality. It has bothered me for some time that Jobs pushed AVCHD with Imovie. They knew the limitations of the technology at the time but pumped it up anyway. So maybe they knew we would be heading towards bluray. I as an early adopter don't mind paying the price. I am on the other hand hoping for an elegant solution for AVCHD and Bluray.
