My final projects will be 720p for the internet. So I want to keep the files small. I've tried both AVCHD and MP4 on my system and the MP4's seem to work a little smoother. I had to convert the AVCHD files with ClipWrap to get usable results. I don't want to go through that process, so 60p MP4 should work jus fine.
Thanks again everyone!

The files will ingest just fine, but my system always slows by a noticeable amount. It's been an ongoing problem for me. I've spent the last two years working with AVCHD files from sony handicams. Usually 5 to 6 angle mulitcam clips. Never had good luck with them. As soon as I run them through ClipWrap everything is smooth. I think it's just my setup. I've been desperately wanting to upgrade to a new 15 MacBook Pro with graphics card, but intel hasn't been cooperating! Hopefully soon!!!
I'm using a C100 II as well and tend to shoot 1080P 60 and edit in a 29.97 timeline. Even though I'm not a devout pixel peeper, being curious because of seeing so many comments about which is better I've been looking at comparisons as well as trying my own. Here's one I foundhttps://vimeo.com/119822152
I haven't been able to see any difference between AVCHD and MP4 but do find the MP4 easier to work with so that's what I've been doing lately.
