You can upgrade Cyberlink to Power Director 11 or 12. They are good with AVCHD 28 Mbps. I have TMPGEnc too which is good too.

I will say it again, if you are recording AVCHD at 28 mbps, you are better off using the MP4 35 mbps option instead, since they are both 1080p60. The extra bits will reduce the damage to the footage if you have to re-encode it for any reason after editing. You will not be able to tell the difference looking at the raw footage side by side, but there is a difference, and that will become more evident if you do anything like image adjustment or correction.

Power Director 11 has no MP4 35 Mbps option, the nearest is 40 Mbps which produces rendered artefacts. I have compared the smartrendered AVCHD 1080/50p with the MP4 and the AVCHD is the only perfect produced result. Maybe 60p is better. I have the european version of HF G30.

If it is Smart Rendered it shouldn't matter what the bit rate is. True smart rendering will only re-render the few frames at the cut.

I played with Power Director today and found out that I could make new profiles with MP4 and choose any bitrate and fps. Only 25p was offered in the standard profile. I want 50p of course. Smart rendering seems impossible with MP4. The produced film was as good as AVCHD 28Mbps.
Thankyou Tugela for giving me the energy to test MP4 once more..

I'll double-check the manual, but I thought you could only get 5.1 with the G30 recording in AVCHD, not in MP4. (Correct me if I'm mistaken.)

I Always use the external stereo mic DM 100 to avoid windsounds.
After more playing with Power Director 11 I found out it can do only 28Mbps in MP4 50p. I don´t know if PD 12 can go to 35Mbps.
Instead I use TMPGEnc which can handle MP4 35Mbps 50p very good. I can add 200 clips in one click to a single Project. In PD I had to drag every single clip to the timeline. It´s hard to see any difference from AVCHD 1080/50p 28 Mbps though. I play the produced movies from the HDD in my Dune mediaplayer on my Panasonic AX800 4K UHD TV and the detail and overall quality is so much better than on a 1080/50p display or played via a pc with WMP, VLC or MPC-HC .
I´m waiting for the next generation of JVC projectors to be 4K so I can play my movies in my home theater.
