Actually, I say "basic" but I'm not sure if it is.

I've just bought a Canon Legria FS200. It takes footage on to an SD card at 720x576 in widescreen with a framerate of 25. It produces the files on to the SD card in .mod format.

What is the best way to convert it in to a format like .avi or .wmv (something that Avid Xpress Pro will work with) without losing much (or any?) quality?

I'm playing with Sorenson Squeeze but there are so many options I really don't know what I'm doing.

Any help would be brilliant, thanks in advance
