Recently many Sony NEX-5N users asked me how to import Sony NEX-5N 1080p 60p AVCHD videos to Adobe Premiere for editing. One of them asked: I just got a Sony Nex 5N camera – it shoots 1080p 60p HD movies in AVCHD format. I really enjoy the full HD videos; however, when I drag and import the AVCHD files into Premiere CS5.5 timeline, they immediately need rendering, and the timeline becomes extremely sluggish for scan/scrub or when previews. Whenever the camera is moving, the movement is very jerky and also blurry during a span.
