So from what I've gathered here,
...For the most part, all of the widely used formats are compatible, other than AVCHD.
and from a forum search, the Cineform codec appears to be giving people trouble. Since I shoot with a camera the outputs AVCHD, Cineform as an intermediate is a must for me. Besides working butter smooth in my NLE, it up-converts 4:2:0 sub-sampled AVCHD to 4:2:2, which I prefer for grading and the like.
Is Hitfilm something I should invest in yet? I'm a huge fan of FXhome, all the way back to CSB Digital days and own everything from AlamDV to Chromanator to the Lab products. But before I move on, I need to make sure my workflow won't be hindered.
Appreciate the feedback.
