Question about Panasonic Video Cameras
The camera works fine, but I recently purchased an iMac PC. The included program iMovie does not seem to be compatible with my NV-DS33. When I input from camera to PC, the movie gets broken up into 4 second clips. The problem is intermittant also, (sometimes it's OK & sometimes it's not). I have tried with a later model of Panasonic Camcorder, & that works OK. I have tried changing every setting I can think of on the Camera without success. Can you help

The best way is to download a file converter and convert the files from the Hitachi hard drive to MOV format. I used an AVS converter to do this.

How to convert .MOD file to mpg, avi, wmv,mp4,flv,mov,mkv and other common video formats?
if you got a JVC camcorder, or Panasonic camcorder or Canon MOD camcorder,you would have problably encountered such issue--- what to do with the MOD/TOD files? And you want to convert the recorded .MOD file type to mpeg, avi, mkv, flv, mp4, wmv or whatever more common, so that you can put them on Youtube, Myspace, Yahoo video, Metacafe? the problem is most major video editing suites seem to unwillingly accept the MOD/TOD format.
Someone successfully made it simply by changing the extension from .mod to mpg, but for most people, they just failed only to find there is no audio after the extension is changed, or the changed one doesn’t allow you to import these files into Windows movie maker, not to mention upload some video to Youtube.com or Facebook. People use different operation system, windows xp, Vista or else. No one wants to say they just want to enjoy the .mod files on camcorder
Stop wasting your time and getting pissed off. There is a very simple program that convert .mod NOT ONLY to mpg but many others like avi, mkv, flv, mp4, wmv, rm, rmvd, mov, dv, mg2 and swf.

My knowledge in video editing is limited, but here's what I could dig up.
m2ts is also referred to as AVCHD, (MPEG4) a high-def Interlaced format which most computers cant render properly since most computers render in progressive format. You have to convert it to MPEG2, AVI, WMV, MOV or other movie file types in Progressive mode, a process known as "Deinterlacing" in order to edit it. Depending on how big the file is and how fast your computer is this could take several hours. Also, you cant view AVCHD files on normal televisions, you need a high-def TV.
If you want to edit high-def videos with post-effects and music etc, for dvd or blue-ray, you'll need a more powerful computer. The "recommended" minimum is a 64bit dual core processor, windows vista 64 bit, a seperate 500Gb or bigger hard drive and at minimum, 3-4Gbs of RAM with a high-def TV monitor. (1080i) Rendering High-Def videos is process heavy and can take up to 12+ hours to render a single 30-60 minute video with post-fx like music, logo's etc. The reason you need a 64bit processor and 64bit windows is because regular XP and Vista wont recognize more than 3Gb of RAM.
You could get by with a 32bit dual core processor and 2 gigs of RAM on windows XP, it's just going to be slower. You will still probably need a high def monitor if your going to edit in high-def mode.
High-def is new technology to mainstream consumers. Supporting technology hasnt caught up yet including most software--however most of what I read stated that Sony Vegas Platinum can do this pretty well.
Your camera is capeable of recording in progressive mode. You'll have to read the manual on how to do this. This will record it in standard mode which is not high-def. (For future reference)
To sum it all up, the camera's technology is more advanced than most PCs. I downloaded AVS Video Converter and converted the AVCHD, (MPEG4) a high-def Interlaced format to HD Video 720p: WMV9, 7000 kbps....... on the drop down screen of the AVS program. I now can view my videos in Progressive Standard mode with NO choppy play back or problems. Please note that 720p is a non digital standard Television view.
Remember M2ts files need to be converted to Progressive non HD files so your computer can read them. That will stop the choppy skips.
Hope this helps.
