This Panasonic camcorder line is giving a lot of people problems because it shoots its video in 60p/50p format, which most consumer programs can not work with well. (I'm not sure why Panasonic decided to go with this format.)
So, if you want to edit this video in Premiere Elements, you MUST set the camcorder to shoot in 60i/50i HA or HG format.
You then should be able to work with it if you start up a Premiere Elements project with the settings for an AVCHD 1920x1080 project with 5.1 audio.
Otherwise, about the only under-$300 software that will edit it well is the editing software that comes with the camcorder.
Thanks about this info,
are there any better than the normal "settings" for exporting the video ?
I don't know what you're asking. Exporting from where to where?
For the Export choices, one starts with what their delivery scheme is, say to BD disc, or perhaps streaming Video for the Web. That will dictate much of what one will choose next.
Within those two delivery schemes, there are choices also. For the BD, if one is working exclusively in PrE, then Export/Share is not necessary, as PrE has BD authoring capabilities. If one is using another program to author, then there are two allowed choices: BD-compliant H.264, or HD MPEG-2, which is BD-compliant. For streaming media, then there are many choices, from WMV, to Flash (FLV), to DivX, to H.264. Each has pluses and minuses, and much might depend on the Web page, on which one will display the AV file. If, for instance, the Web page has an embedded QT Player, then the H.264 in a MOV wrapper is probably the best bet, while if there is an embedded Flash player, the FLV would be the choice. If one wishes a self-contained Flash player, then a program, like Adobe Flash, can bundle the FLV into an SWF file.
Knowing exactly how you need to deliver the output file will get you (and us) started on picking the best format/CODEC and then the internal settings for Export/Share.
well I would like to export the videos for YouTube for now...
just want to find a setting for exporting the videos without loosing their quality too much, if you know what I mean...
Thanks, I'll try this & let You know about the progress..
