I’ve been struggling with IMO piece of sh#1 … can’t say it … video cam! a JVC “full HD”, what it does is shoot 1440x1080 (anamorphic)
and hence the quality is not at all full HD; and it’s so badly compressed.
that’s the second part, compression, you get a TOD and a MOD file. (reminds me of the two annoying neighbor kids in Simpsons… Ned Flanders kids)
the format is utterly useless, can’t be read by any editing software. and tried a lot of convertes until I found
it’s Open Source, and free … and converts it utterly awesome on my mac. My friend who I share the video cam w/ has windows and doesn’t have the codec issues I have.
I mean I can see it in VLC perfectly nice, (VLC can guestimate codecs and give you a clear picture, when I load it to blender it’s all scrambled and codec error)
but thanks to Handbrake I can convert to at least mp4 100% quality. So no loss inbetween that conversion. and It also converts it from anamorhpic to hdtv res. that’s nice.
so check it out if you just happens to use a JVC (fake HD) cam for you shooting and can’t get the video into blender for VSE editin’
