System requirements for editing AVCHD files
on Aug 4, 2015 at 11:34:31 am

Hi all,

I just shot a documentary in China with my Canon XA10 camera in 1080p, 25fps. I have all the files backed up on an external HD using the original camera file structure. I edit with FCP X.

Im using a 2011 iMac: 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5, 8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 memory, AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB, Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5.

Are these specs enough to edit a long project with large files? Is it ok to work with the files on the external HD?

Ive also read that people convert the AVCHD files first, What would you recommend for editing this film?

I know its a bunch of questions but Im hoping some people have some answers for me. Thanks and have a nice day.

This is the wrong forum, you need to post this on the FCPX Forum. This one is for FCP "legacy."
