AVCHD and best codec
Since my first camera, I have been using Mp4 media encoding. But I recently noticed some bad behaviour and extra weird compression using this format with my lumix fz300. It is known that AVCHD provides a higher quality and less compressed video, and I've found out that, indeed, AVCHD provides a better image. The problem comes when using hitfilm. Even with my 5Ghz intel I9-9900K and 2070 super, 64Gb ram, Nvme ssd.. footage is laggy and really slow to deal with. Is there a way to accelerate AVCDHD footage in hitfilm without using proxies or lowering down the quality? I've heard about transcoding but don't know if it is worth it... Will I loose quality transcoding it to prores or similar? What format would you recommend me transcoding to? Will transcoding solve my problem?
