I recently bought a Panasonic AG-HMC41E camcorder. I have a Mac mini for editing, with a 1.83ghz processor, and I'm running iMovie for editing.
The first problem I encountered was that iMovie doesn't recognise .MTS files, so I got around that by purchasing iSkySoft Video converter.
The problem I have now, is the quality of my video files, and I don't know where the problem lies. I have thought of three potential problems, and Id really appreciate some advice from some people with experience?
The quality is fine in images with no movement, but whenever there is any movement at all (be that via zoom, panning or the subjects own movement) I see pixelation on the edges of the image that is moving. I am shooting in good light, and on a tripod incidentally.
I am thinking it could be either:
a) The video card in my Mac is not good enough to play back the video
b) I have the camera set up wrongly, or it has a fault
c) iSkySoft is converting the files badly
Can anyone offer any advice, as I am getting pretty frustrated?
This is the best I have got out of it so far: and I did this by uploading the .MTS file directly to YouTube.
Thanks a million in advance for any help.
