I have been a stills photographer for many years, with some experience in video editing. However, recently I bought a Canon XC10 for recording video in 4K. The problem I am having is this; whilst the 4k recording (onto Lexar Cfast 2.0) looks good on the camera’s display and indeed looks perfect when displayed on a 4k TV using an HDMI transfer cable but when I transfer the clips from the cfast card to my PC using the Canon Utility application, the video is very “jerky”. After importing the MXF files using the Canon Utility, I then convert to mpeg4 using the Pavtube MXF converter application.
The problem is most apparent when panning (however slow) and when there is a moving object in view, such as a vehicle. This problem does not happen with HD clips, which play smoothly.
I have scoured the internet, without success to find a solution to this problem, so I’m really hoping a forum member can point me in the right direction.
