I've recently bought a new digital camera (Canon Ixus 110) with 720p movie recording, which I believe is using the H.264 codec saved to a .MOV file.
I used this a little to complement my normal video camera on holiday (which is bulkier and only DV quality) and am looking to edit both video types in Vegas.
I'm just going for a Widescreen DV project so the DV footage edits perfectly as always. However, my new HD H.264 footage is causing me some problems. I realise this codec isn't ideal for editing so I was just wondering what people would suggest doing? Batch convert the .MOV files first? And if so, which codec is best to preserve quality and make them more editing-friendly?
I hear VLC has a nice batch converter, or would doing it in Vegas be simplest?
Any suggestions welcomed & appreciated!
