I have an SD Canon FS10 that captures MPEG-2 interlaced video 720x480 (854x480). I have FCE4 and have used iMovie since back when it was good (6/HD). My end goal is to play the video on an AppleTV connected to a Samsung 50", 16:9 HDTV. I've tried many different workflows over the last several days and I still a haven't found anything that gives me a good final video (close to the original source quality). After seeing the video on the TV, I went back and compared the original captured video to the video output so my comments about the final video quality are in reference to the original source video. I don't expect HD quality from an SD camcorder. I've tried this: (1) Import using iMovie09 directly from camera Edit video and share using either "Large" or changing to QT export and using 854x480 as resulting video size. (2) Import using iMovie09 directly from camera Use either QTPro, JES Interlacer, or MPEG Streamclip to de-interlace and export the resulting video as high quality AIC. Import the new video into iMovie09 and do editing on the de-interlaced video. (3) Import using iMovie09 directly from camera Edit video and export AIC 854x480 video Use either QTPro, JES Interlacer, or MPEG Streamclip to de-interlace and export the resulting video as MPEG4 or .MOV with h.264 I have a ton of video shot (we have really young children) that I'd like to be able to quickly throw together and display on the ATV, I just can't live with the video degradation I'm currently getting. Any ideas on improving the workflow or ways to better the resulting video quality? I've read through the Apple discussions (even have a post there that's gone unanswered) and I am currently confused and befuddled.
