How do you save a file as AVCHD. I shot the video with Canon Vixia HF S20 and I used Power Director before and I was able to save them as a AVCHD file that when opening for full screen it would fill the whole screen with the video and the quality was perfect. Now using Roxio I don't see a selection of AVCHD listed so I chose AVC better quality, which when played back with windows media player it will not fill my screen with the video like Power Director does. I post the videos on You Tube and the last video posted I used Roxio and it doesn't look as smooth as Power Director produced videos. I find that Roxio is much easier to use then Power Dircector. please help

In this case, you provided a lot of words but not much in the way of information about what you are really doing.

Open "Edit Video -Advanced" ; select 16 by 9 as the new project.  Add your (AVCHD) video file and do any editing that you want to.  Go to the top menu, select output and then share.  You can upload directly to you tube from there.

As an alternate, you can select to one of the high definition outputs that YouTube will accept.   Output/export (see below)

I thnk the key here is that you may not have selected 16 by 9 for the project.

Yes, I have to take a minute to think when I switch to Power Director.  You have to almost forget all you know about one whne you use the other or develop a split personality !   :P
