Using a Panasonic HPX-370 Camera, trouble with formats

Advertisement

We are using a Panasonic HPX-370 camera with FMLE via firewire to a Mac laptop.  We can only get FMLE to recognize the signal from the camera at 1280 x 720  59.94i  with a frame rate of 60i using the DVCPROHD codec.  We really would like to set the camera to SD, something like 720 x 480 at 29.97 or possible squeeze for 16:9 possibly using DVCPRO50 or DVCPRO25 but FMLE won't recognize the video signal at anything by 1280x 720 60i using DVCPROHD.  Our client is only purchasing 1MB bandwidth at the venues for events so SD would be best for webcasts. We also back up to P2 cards so you can imagine that 8 hours at DVCPROHD in that size is a mammoth amount of data to back on hard drives.
We are very new to FMLE, any thoughts?
Thanks!

Hi anne adshead
Welcome to apple discussions. Might be too new of a camcorder to tell (you'll have to tell us) but here's what I found so far:
http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3290
It is listed within apple's KB. But as to how much apple support it offers? .... I'm not sure.
http://panasonic.net/avc/camcorder/sd/america/products/sdr-s26/specifications.ht ml
The convenience of the SDHC format makes it is easy to transfer files. The S26 offers Mass Storage support – connect with a USB lead and your Mac sees all the files.
But here ends the Apple support. Video is recorded in the .MOD format (also used by JVC Everio camcorders) which Mac apps don't recognise. You can change the extension manually (or by batch command) to .M2V so that VLC plays it.
For iMovie and elsewhere, you'll need a conversion app such as Aimersoft Video Converter. Is it too much effort for what you get?
