    Default canon legria hfr 306 funny looking 'stripey' recordings

    Hi all...

    I have a canon legria hfr306

    Firstly I have problems getting my footage from the cam to my mac. I am running Mac os x 10.5 which is too old to 'run' the software provided with this cam. My bad for not checking. So, I bought a SD card reader and grabbed them that way. I cannot view them in imovies but I can using VLC media player.
    It is then I get 'stripes' across my footage. Please refer to image below...When playing back on cam there is no lines-crystal clear.

    I did manage to install the softwares on my pc but they were not able to open the clips. I couldn't even find the footage (30 mins continuous running), it was all transferred as scenes.

    Why has this happened. Any info would be most appreciated, thanking you.

    It's an interlacing artifact called combing. ie it makes edges look like the teeth of a comb. This is usually caused by setting the wrong field order. Example, SD footage should be lower field first. HD footage should be upper field first. If you don't know what a field is then take a look at THIS.
