I have a Canon HD camcorder that records in the AVCHD format, and I'm looking for some free software that can convert it to other formats. Right now, the only program I know of that can do any kind of conversion with it is Avidemux, but it doesn't do it very well. VLC is supposed to be able to play it, but the playback is too choppy to be useful.
I have Windows, although Linux software would be okay.
EDIT: I probably should also mention that it's full HD, 1080p, 60i frame rate.
