Intro: I recently purchased a Canon Ivis HF21, and I have been trying different things to get the best quality footage when importing. I am looking to make HD movies with the camera, and wanted to import the footage as cleanly and smoothly as possible. Some important details: The camera shoots in AVCHD. (1080i) I would like to have all my final footage in 720p. I would like to use Final Cut, not iMovie. So two questions. 1. I tried Final Cut first.. and I couldn't figure out how to import the video directly from the camera. How do I accomplish this? 2. Using iMovie, when importing, I get two options: Large and Full. Are these the only possible options? If so, then how do I turn the footage into 720p once it is imported as Full? Basically, I just want to know what the best way is for me to get 720p footage from AVCHD footage using Final Cut Pro. Thanks so much.
