tDawg and Kaido thanks again. I did a little research on Sony Vegas, and I decided to go that route. I got a little intimidated by the price tag on the full feature version, but for my needs, I will probably either go with the basic or platinum version. It definitely makes the most sense for me to use a video editing tool that allows me to work with AVCHD pulled directly from my camera, and then use it to either create quick videos for posting to say Facebook and more creative home DVDs and one day Blu-Rays. I have used several video editing software tools in the past to convert old family VHS tapes to DVD, so I am reasonably familiar with the moving pieces of workflow.
