My boss recorded some footage of an experiment on his dv cam, and then his friend put it straight onto cd without editing it. It is in mpeg1 format.
I have been given the cd in this format, but need to cut it down to a few short clips showing when the chemicals react etc, as it is currently quite dull to watch for the most part.
I have edited several key clips, but when i export them from P6 the resulting file is jerky, as if frames have been dropped.
I am quite new to this so not sure where im going wrong. I have tried numerous different settings for output, but they all produce the same problem.
The frame size of the original video is 352x288, which seems slightly unusual to me.
My system is Athlon 1700xp, 512mb ram, ATI Radeon 9600 128 Pro card. I cant get access to the original dv so recapturing is not an option.
Do i need a special encoder to ensure quality output, or is it something else? What would be the best settings for export?
Any pointers much appreciated.
