Got My Canon Legria Hf S20 And Need Help..

Question

After pretty much solving burning problems with my mini DV footage with help from this forum, I am needing some help with my new AVCHD Canon camcorder.

 

I am loading the clips into FCE, adding some transitions, then exporting as QT movie. I am burning in Toast 11 using HD DVD video option. I have left settings in the customize tab as "Automatic"

 

Quality looks good, except again, a slight jerkiness with movement. Starting at the wide focal length position and the zooming in, results in a slightly jerky movement. This is smooth when played back via the camera using an HDMI cable to HD TV.

 

Not sure if this is with the conversion to QT, or in Toast. The video info after conversion is shown in Toast as Apple intermediate codec 1920x1080 25fps.

 

Thanks for the help again.

 

Ronnie.

Do a test with turning on Half-Pel in the custom encoder settings.

 

 

OK, I've tried that, but this time does not help. I must just add, that if I import the original clips into Toast, and do a "direct" burn (bypass FCE), the quality is perfect. As good as the original.

 

OK, so over to you :)

 

Thanks

Ronnie.

Unfortunately I don't have FCE so I'm not certain of all its export options. Since it chose to use the Apple Intermediate Codec be sure it is not interlacing the video. You should be able to choose 1080P in the codec's custom settings. The thing is, you don't need AIC if you aren't changing the scaling of the video. But that may be how FCE imports from the camera as a default. You might get some experienced advice about this in the FCE forum at discussions.apple.com.

I recently purchased Tom Wolsky's e-book on FCE, so I will do some reading before asking on the FCE forum. Just thought that it may be a Toast setting, seeing that your last suggestions helped with my DV files.

 

Thanks for the help.
