Hey everyone, I'm fairly new to editing with HD formats. I currently am using a Panasonic HDC-TM700. Here is my problem: I'm using Final Cut Express and have converted the raw .MTS files (from my camera) to HD .mp4 files with HD H.264 codec using iSkysoft Video Converter. I've tried multiple formats as well. Whichever format I have, the video shows on my preview pane within FCE as the quality that it was shot in without any loss (that I can notice). But, when I put it on the timeline and render it, there is noticeable quality loss. I'm not sure what's going on, could someone please shed some light or point me in the right direction? Thank you ahead of time!
