Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me.
I recently purchased a Panasonic HX-DC2 however the software disc that comes with it doesn't recognise any of the video files why I try to edit them (they are mp4 files). The software then freezes and just closes by itself. It's my wedding I am trying to edit and then put on DVD.
I also have Adobe premiere pro 2 on my PC, but you can't import MP4's. Next I tried a video converter to convert the mp4's to avi files....actually I have tried several, some came out pixelated, some came out with just sound and no picture and haven't got a clue as to why. I then tried converting the MP4's to Mpeg2 and also to .mov files which you can open in premiere pro 2 but the quality on them is absolutley terrible and they don't playback properly.
What I'm asking is, can anyone recommend a converter that converts to avi that is genuinley good (if you have used it before and been happy with it) and doesn't loose much quality? Or is there any way of importing MP4's to premiere pro?
Any help is much appreciated as I am at a complete loss. I feel like I've got a camera (and my wedding on video) that I can't do anything with!
