I did some editing work in college but that was a little while ago and I'm very rusty - these are probably very basic questions but any help is greatly appreciated, I'm trying to get back into it and start learning again. I have a Panasonic pv-gs150 and am trying to use Final Cut Express editing software. When I capture clips into the software, the video quality is not good, even when I play the clips in the viewer or canvas window (looks far better on my camera's viewfinder than on my computer) I even tried exporting a couple clips to my desktop to watch as .avi and .mov files and those looked absolutely terrible. What am I doing wrong or what settings need to be changed? I guess a first question would be, I'm not positive which 'easy setup' option to chose, I thought it should be the DV-NTSC one but that doesn't look that great and none of them seem to have decent resolution. Any help is appreciated, I'm at a loss! I'm starting with just trying to get my footage for this project onto my computer but I want to make sure I'm using the right settings and have decent video quality, which for some reason I'm not getting (this is my first time editing using my setup I have at home - not nearly as good as what I used in school - and I'm trying to figure out how to make it all work together) Any help is greatly appreciated!
