I'm very new to the HD video editing lark so please bare with me. I'm using Video Studio X2 Pro
1) I have a Panasonic SD9 which captures in AVCHD. I have a monster spec PC to handle the editing but I am very confused about field order. In Video Studio there are 2 places you specify the field order (or frame based). One is in the project perperties and the second is when I output a file. Can anyone tell me what I should be doing in both these sections?
I have played about and get a 'combing' effect no matter what I do. When I import the files into video studio and look at their peroperties its showing as upper field first. So I set project properties to this and when I output using the share media tab (and go to create video file and then AVCHD 1080) i ensure its set to upper field first. When I play the resulting mpg file back on the computer it has that combing effect. If i selected the 'same as first clip' output setting it looks great! I dont think this is the way I should be going though.
1) While the HD footage is great for streaming to my PS3, i can't share this on standard DVD's. Can anyone tell me how to convert the HD video to a SD file so i can burn as you would a normal DVD?
Any help greatly apreciated!
