Question about Canon DM-XM2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a Canon XM2 DV camcorder that I have been using for a while now. The image quality is superb, until I try to capture it onto my hard-drive. After having tried every program I can think of, I still have the same problem: every time there is movement in the frame, it blurs into horizontal lines.
It doesn't do this on the tape, and it doesn't happen on the screen on the camera, it only occurs on playback once the video has been captured.
If anyone has any ideas, a solution is needed a.s.a.p.
After testing a little I found that the problem is caused by Interlacing. Solution: Swich the Movie Mode from Normal to Frame on the XM2 (Turn on in Camera mode, press Menu -> Cam. Set Up -> Movie Mode -> Frame) and re-shoot.
About interlacing read here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interlace (Thanks to Zak Ray for that one).
