    Hi, when converting I always feel lost. No clue what to click and un-click.

    I am about to convert a project lasting for about 15 minutes. It is shot in:
    AVCHD,
    aspect ratio: 16:9.
    Record setting: 24p 24M(FX) Running on NTSC
    1920 x 1080


    But in FCE it is written 29,97 fps
    compressor: apple intermediate codec
    audio rate: 48,0 KHz

    I will not upload it to the net, only play it from a USB-stick on a pc (not mac) displayed at a large TV-screen.

    All the best

    The specs you're quoting suggest these are settings for importing from the camera into the editor, not exporting a project to media. If the import settings are working for you, then np. That is, if they aren't taking up too much disk space, taking too long to import, and being responsive during the editing process.
    Much of what should be set for output (conversion/encoding) is determined by what the content is, and what the playback target is. For example, fast-action sports where much of the image is on the move will need a faster bit rate than, say, a talking head with little movement. If the settings you're using are working for you, once again np. That is, the files are not too big and play as expected. Adjusting import/export settings help with these. It's way more complicated than this, but that's the gist. Apple apps usually offer presets to help with these settings.
