Can you confirm what the specs I'm finding seem to say: This camcorder records AVCHD at 24p?
That non-standard frame rate could be the issue.
Also, how are you getting the video from the camcorder into your computer? Are you using the Media Downloader in Premiere Elements or other software?
Slow motion effect also looks poor when using standard definition MPEG2 files instead of DV-AVI... perhaps it is the compressed nature or file structure of the MPEG2/AVCHD that causes the problem.
Here's the specs of my camera:
Looks like it's AVCHD at 25p (or 50i)
I'm copying the files directly to the computer - ie. plug the camcorder to my PC, an external drive appears in Windows Exploer - I just copy the MTS files to my PC.
I just did some more testing and even de-interlacing it doesn't fully fix the jerkyness of the final footages on DVD.
Paul has a very good point.
Though you may be able to minimize the jerkiness by right-clicking on the clip and selecting Frame Blend.
I just don't think, working with MPEG4s (and assuming you're using all the correct settings), you'll be able to do seamless slow motion.
From what I can see, I'm using all the correct settings.
I'll need to try the Frame Blend option - never tried that before - all I've tried is de-interlacing the slow motion footages which fixed some of the jerkiness.
Thanks for your help.
