Hi Gary,

My own cameras are HDV, but I recently rented an AX-2000 for a weekend stage event, which was a play at 2+ hours. Same camera as yours basically. The general rule with AVCHD files and Premiere is to do the following - do NOT run the camera software utility to process or join files!

Rather, COPY the ENTIRE CONTENTS of the memory card to your PC hard drive. Do not pick and choose files, but copy the Root directory over with everything intact. Then in Premiere, rather than "Import", use the "Media Browser" to bring in the clips.

I did this and it worked flawlessly in CS6. The play had an intermission, so I had two 16GB SDHC cards, each with just over an hour of continuous video on them. In Premiere, I was seeing just one clip name for each, not all the smaller parts, so Premiere is being intelligent in knowing how to handle the clip joining behind the scenes.

Playback was smooth, no sync issues or hiccups between clips, totally seamless and pleasant experience on a 2-year-old Core i7-2600 machine. Was a two-camera shoot and was mixing the AVCHD with HDV clips.
