To a real beginner this is really starting to mess me up. I am currently working on a project which mostly consists of good old DV video. AVI files, Interlaced, Lower field first. Fits perfectly into my regular workflow, Vegas 9.
Disaster strikes when i notice that over 60% of the my material (given from a friend) is m2ts files. I have given up trying to edit them uncompressed. My computer cant carry it. Recent studies have shown me that TMPGenc is probably the best conversion tool out there. I have obtained it, but have absolutely no idea witch settings to use. I want to loose as little qualtiy as is humanly possible. I realize that a certain amount of loss is unavoidable. I really want to keep the widescreen to.
I now turn to you more educated regarding the subject. I would REALLY be a fantastic favor if anyone is willing to share a little knowledge. I simply want to put the files into (and out of) Vegas without any hassle. How to I convert them in TMPGenc? Witch settings, witch format? How do I avoid field order problems?
Thanks sooo much for your time!
Have a nice day!
