I used to use Super for my .mov files.
Free Media Converter Encoder | Audio Converter & Video Converter

Looks like it isn't compatible with avchd.

I've used Apple Compressor, Handbrake, and MPEG Streamclip for converting files with success.

What editor are you using? I use AVCHD fine with Sony Vegas Platinum... I can render in tons of formats. AVCHD is a very good file format for high res footage. When you convert it, you are decreasing the quality...

I have Movie Studio 11. I have heard putting it in draft mode will get rid of of the choppiness but also heard converting the file makes for smoother playback.

The choppiness is a fault of movie studio...

You have to realize you are using a low end editor, and doing very high resolution video. So the playback is horrific. (I am currently editing a project with FOUR 1080HD video streams). It is so bad that even in the lowest setting, with a tiny picture it still won't play the video without massive lag.

So you learn to use the arrow keys, and zoom in to the clips as much as possible. And close and reopen the program often, to clear your memory.

I have a super fast machine with TONS of ram, and I have even tried putting all my video on secondary hard drives. Still serious lag on playback when I am editing.

But, it renders great, and looks amazing. It just makes editing take 10 times as long... Because you have to go frame by frame to get to your cut spots...

Here are some tricks. Don't add your color correction to your clips until you are DONE editing. Sure it is a hassle, but it will speed up the playback. Do the restart trick as well.

If you have clips that you use a lot, render them and use the rendered clip in your timeline and that will speed it up.

See this software "can" do some amazing stuff, but they limit it, to get you to buy the "pro" version that works better but costs hundreds more.

When dealing with HD files, the Sony studio product works, but the playback on your preview is a hassle. I'm using Sony movie studio 10, I wonder if they made this issue better in version 12?... It all goes back to the system limiting the amount of ram that the software can access to 2 gigs max... so ALL the stuff you do is only using 2 gigs, even if you have 8 gigs like my machine.
