Am using an old dv with Hi8 tapes camera. Just trying to get all the tapes digitised before the damn things decay, and so I could actually watch old family footage.
Should I import everything using iMovie '11, or FCP X?
When I use iMovie for imports, and playback just the ".dv" files in Finder (QuickView), they look quite good.
When I import using FCP X, and playback the ".mov" generated, they come out interlaced.
Last tape I recorded, when played back on the camera is at normal speed, yet in iMovie, when in .dv format is significantly accelerated. Both Video + Audio is at almost 1.5x speed.
- Why does FCPX produce an interlaced video?
- Does iMovie do some internal processing on the ingested film to produce progressive output?
- What's with the sped up result in latest iMovie tape? Just happens with a single one thus far. Haven't tried FCPX for this tape though.
- What is best to use - FCPX or iMovie for importing?
Any other tips?
Thank you very much.
