    Hi All

    I've a got a Samsung VP-HMX10 which records video as an mp4 [compressed] but it looks pretty awesome on my 40" tv.

    Now, I want to edit my footage using iMovie [version 8 I think]but when I import the raw footage it's a bit of a nightmare to edit, especially longer videos.

    I've been told to convert the footage first with MPEg Streamclip but I'm unsure which settings to use. I want the best quality, filr size is not an issue. Anyone got any idea what setting(s) to use?

    Also, when I export the movie with iMovie the best resolution it lets my use is 940x540, how can I export at full res?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Can I also just ask, what is the best FPS to go with?

    The footage was shot in 50, I intend to stream the footage using ATV and/or PS3, should I convert to 25FPS? If so, what's the best method to do this?

    I realise that if I want to burn the footage to DVD it'll have to be in 25FPS.

    Thanks!
