How did your editing software handle the weekend?
There seems to be a lot of threads floating around with lots of comments about editing software being great/crap, screwing up renders, rendering extremely quickly, etc.
So let's collaborate - it may help someone make a wise decision next year when choosing which software to use.
So, what editing software did you use, what format did you use, did you have any rendering issues, how long did import/render take?
Software: Avid Media Composer 6.
File format: 24mbit AVCHD
Import: Approx 2 hours for 90 min of footage
Output from editing software: About 10 minutes for 7 minute film
Final render: About 10 minutes using Handbrake to render to h264 mp4
PC: Win7, Intel i7
Problems: Aside from kicking out the computer's power cable half way through my initial import and having to start again, none!
