hi guys,
i have a question regarding the video uploaded directly from camera to computer, before it gets edited, i remember reading somewhere that the video has to be unlaced/decompressed or something like that?

because everytime when i put the videos together, the result doesn't come out great, but rather weird and all pixellated.
please, your help will be sincerely appreciated.
i have FCP, and premiere cs5.
thanks!

EDIT: new question
can someone tell me what should be the best settings for timeline and settings in FCP?
it seems like i've ruined the settings and i just give up..
i mean.. the video in the viewer is sharper than the video in canvas.
this whole file thing has got me in knots
i am using fcp 7. and when exporting, what should be the settings for compressor? it used to be so much easier with vegas but i just don't use it anymore :cry:

finally 70-200L f/4!!:cool:
never thought in a million i'd get me a 7D.bw!

Video from my 7d drops right into my FCP timeline.

When you are adding it to timeline and it asks "do oyou wnt to conform your sequence settings to match your clip settings?" say YES and it should play back natively.

Also check your camera's video settings if you are shooting anything "p" that means progressive scan and NO de-interlacing is needed.

Sorry you're having problems. It does sound like the setting or the computer itself (maybe not enough ummph to handle the footage).
What is your system (RAM, processor)? Are you having problems with 1080 files, 720 files, or both?

You've got to convert the footage. I use mpeg streamclip. Here's a great tutorial on what you need to do and how to do it. http://www.youtube.com​/watch?v=Kxo5YWz7_dw (external link)

Premiere Pro doesn't need transcoding.
