Do a search for AVCHD editing and see what you come p with
This is a guide of sorts
Video Editing Software Review 2010 - TopTenREVIEWS
Ther are all under £100 and all have different levels of ease of use

Pinnacle Studio is well ;liked . And rightly so it is powerful and is fairly easy to use
other like Corel ( used tobe ulead ) Video Studio.
Im not sure what its called now
I quite like Sony Vegas ( although I use the full version not the Movie Studio version which is pocket friendly)
Other title are by Cyberlink ,Serif, Magix Adobe Premiere Elements ( I ddnt like ver 7)
None will be as easy to use as WMM but it isnt that hard to get the jist of it
and they do have a lot more under thier belts ( than WMM)

See What you come up with or PM me after your little search

Its your call. sir . give me a shout if you get stuck...:smashin:
Corel bought over Ulead so dont expect a similar interface
Sony Audio is fine. I take it Sonic isnt your cup of tea,,
HERE
THIS might warm you toward them I dont know, the tutorials are even downloadable

You are in a small club there. What I agree with is that thier GUI can be an aquired taste but have a look anyway.

Am liking the look of pinnacle to be fair
I will drop a trial of them all and see which fits me the closest

EDIT hey those sony tutorials are cool I have no patience with text learning (think I have ADD!! haha)

thankyou
