Camcorder Files 1080i 60fps When Converted Are Jerky

Post by Kingy68 » Wed Apr 07, 2010 4:43 pm

Hi All,

I hope someone can help me with my predicament.

I have Convertxtodvd 4 and I have just purchased a Sanyo Xacti VPC-GH1 1080i digital camcorder.

I previously had the Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD700 720 camcorder.

When I used to convert the mp4 files from the HD700 using convertxtodvd and put it to dvd i played perfectly.

However now that I am using this new GH1 camcorder I am having all sorts of problems.
When I convert these mp4 files using convertxtodvd and burn to dvd the playback is unwatchable as it is too jerky.
The sound however is perfect..

Is there any way around this problem because if there isnt I might as well just go back to my old 720 one..

I can play these perfectly but sometime when we go to family get togethers and other things etc... we like to send out a dvd of the days events to the family, but if we cant get it to play right then there is no way we can do this..

I have adobe elements as well and this does the same thing..

I just love the simplicity and the menus of Convertx that why I always use it 99% of the time...

Any help is appreciated

Kingy..

P.S Forgot to say that the HD700 720 was 30fps and this GH1 1080i is 60 fps..

Thanks Again Guys (& Gals)

720p is good enough quality when converted to DVD, there is no gain on using 1080i. Actually quality is worse as you found, simply because 1080i is interlaced and 720p is progressive.
Stick with 720p, no need to film in interlace and then convert to progressive with problems.

Yea but I use the 1080 on my Popcorn Hour box and it plays perfectly and the quality is mint..

What im saying is I want to keep the 1080 stuff on my popcorn hour but if i want to convert it to give friends and family etc then I cannot convert it because its jerky....

I can record in 720 but then the qualitys not as good on the popcorn..

Any advice?

Cheers

Simple things then. Do search on interlaced and progressive.

1080i is interlaced, that means that every frame is actually 540 pixels high.
720p is progressive, that means that every frame is 720 pixels high.

I would keep on using 720p all the time!
