AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a format for the recording and playback of high definition video.

There are few editors out there that support native editing of AVCHD. This means that they require no conversion in order to start editing the files. Due to the fact that AVCHD is a very highly compressed format, you will normally need a very high end PC to edit AVCHD directly. For this reason many editors require the conversion (which is really decompression then re-compression) of AVCHD before they can work with it.

If your computer is starting to age but you need to edit AVCHD, here comes the problem. It was ASTOUNDING for standard def video editing, then can this old machine make it when you are trying to edit AVCHD files?

We all know previously that AVCHD video editing is extremely slow and painful even with high peformance PC within those normal editors, then do we have any alternative options other than purchasing a new expensive PC, even when our old computer is still efficient enough for most of our working demands?

Then answer is YES!

Smart Rendering is an ability to edit video file avoiding decoding/coding of each video frame. As decoding/coding of each frame takes considerable amount of time, using of this ability will give you fantastic increase of file editing speed. Besides, this method of video editing saves 100% of original video and audio quality. Since AVCHD is lossy, any re-encoding to AVCHD will reduce the quality of the video.

With the smart rendering of FameRing technology to ensure minimum video re-encoding, the export of one hour TV show will take only a few minutes even on an old and slow PC, since most of the video content will be copied from the original recording into the new file without modification.
