    Problem exporting AVCHD to H.264


      I am having big problems exporting a sequence to H.264. I will try and provide all the information. Please let me know if I have missed something.



      The sequence will not export cleanly. I have tried H.264, MPG 2 and MOV files none works. My preferred output would be H.264. I have exported files in this format before (taken on the same camera) with any trouble but this time there are jumps in the video (i.e. the picture jerks for a fraction of a second) and/or massive distortion of the whole image - see screen grab. The problem is not present when viewing the sequence.


      I would really appreciate help with this.



      Mac OS 10.5.8

      2.8 ghz Intel Core duo
