First, Thank-you for your help and for taking the time to reply. I've been pulling my hair out all weekend trying to figure this out and I greatly appreciate your help.
"tried a number of converting software". Can you please tell us which transcoders you have used so we don't re-suggest something you have already tried?</b>I tried Handbreak, clipwrap, iskysoft, and 5DtRGD lite. Handbrake worked perfectly for me in converting a clip once but recently hasn't been working so perhaps I need to play with the handbrake settings again.
When does the "pixelation" happen?<div>The pixelation occurs when there is medium/quick motion and only appears on the object that's moving. When I watch the .MTS file in VLC the area that has motion is very pixilated but then when I turn "deinterlace on" everything looks sharp and there is no pixilation with motion.
Can you please provide some specs on your Mac? RAM, CPU and available hard drive space are a place to start.
I'm running Mac OSX 10.7.5 on my Macbook Pro. It has a 2.7 GHz intel Core i7 and 4GB 1333MHZ DDR3. I have 30 Gigs of free space on my computer and an extra external drive so I can make more space if needed.
Also, the camcorder manufacturer and model - and ideally, the "video quality" setting" when the video was captured will be useful. As well, the video environment - that is, was there fast action/motion that was recorded?
-The camera: Sony CX550V
-Setting: HDFX (1080/60i AVD HD 24m)
-I was shooting in full auto
I'm doing a bit of wildlife filming and the camera was mounted on a tree and a black bear walked by and rubbed his head and neck on the tree-so I certainly wouldn't consider it action/fast motion compared. I really don't need to convert a ton of clips, just here and there for uploading it online and showing a quick demo of what I shot. However the quality is the most important thing to me and I want to demonstrate my work online with short clips in a quality that looks good and is professional.
I suggested HandBrake in an earlier reply. Did that not work?
</div> I converted an MTS video a couple weeks ago and it came out perfect. No motion blur, crystal clear quality, the file imports into imovie-I really couldn't have been happier. Then recently I tried to convert another MTS file and when I compared the converted video to the old MTS file it looks like the converted file was taken with a bad camera phone. The original MTS file has incredible detail and really pops out-you can see every hair, eyebrow, etc.
I deleted and reinstalled handbrake and spent hours and hours messing with the settings and converting videos. When I import the file I converted with handbrake a few weeks back (that looks good), it takes ~10 minutes to import into imovie, but when I import the file I recently converted thats the same length it only takes ~1 minute. So perhaps it's a setting with handbrake-I didn't think I changed any handbrake conversion setting until the file gave me the motion pixilation and the quality didn't look good.
