Panasonic SDR-H40P and FCP HD

Advertisement

Hello,
I am upgrading my analog S-VHS setup to digital with a Panasonic SDR-H40P and am experiencing difficulties with the import and aspect ratio. I have calculated the pixel dimensions of the native video from the camera as 834 x480. I am not familiar with these dimensions? (640x480, 720x486 are familiar to me) Which preset should I edit to accommodate this camera or is there an existing codec and preset I can use native?

The camera records in an mpeg 2 format that must be converted to an editable format.
You may need to use mpeg streamclip to convert it.
If the camera records Standard Definition video, convert the mpeg2 files to DV/NTSC (720x480).
