Hi, I own a Sanyo HD camcorder that shoots in 1080i. I have a .mov file imported to my computer that I have been attempting to convert into .mp4 but when I use ffmmpegX to convert it ends up with half the screen distorted. I've resized the video to 960x540 in Quicktime but it still ends up this way.

As a .mov video it plays just fine. And when I imported it into iMovie (I have the latest version) it does not create thumbnails. What's happening here? Is it because of the HD quality I'm having these problem? And what steps do I need to take to rectify this so that I can convert the video to another file format and, publish it on youtube or vimeo?

Any answers and specifics would really help, as I am not advanced on these issues.

QUOTE Thanks

Give the model number of the camera. Someone might know specifically about it.

When you do a command-I in Quicktime, what codecs does the information say you are using for both the video and audio?

CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
