HVX 1080 24pA footage question


New member
I will be shooting on the HVX 1080 24pA.

I want to use Avid Media Composer on my Mac Quad to edit, but I have never used it with HD material.

Can I edit 1080 24pA without too much trouble in Avid?
(I have been using in FCP the last few weeks and it seems O.K. I prefer Avid)

ALso I am very concerned and confused about monitoring during edit.
I read that the mojo will downconvert- is this in realtime? with 1080 p footage?
