You might need a plugin to install to get rid of that problem look at this link below:

However if you just want to get rid of the blurry image problem follow these steps:

You'll need a software, called an image editor, to sharpen your blurry digital photos.
Most image editors correct blurry photos by increasing the contrast between pixels. And depending on the image editor you use, here are some of the sharpen features you can choose from:

  1. Sharpen filter. Most image editors have this feature. This filter is used to fix blurry digital photos by increasing the contrast of adjacent pixels.
  2. 2. Sharpen Edges or Unsharp mask. Use Sharpen Edges if you want to sharpen just the edges in your photo while retaining the smoothness of the rest. If you want more professional correction, you might want to use Unsharp Mask instead by entering the amount, radius, and threshold.
  3. 3. Manually sharpening selected areas. If you want to sharpen selected objects or features in your photo, click on the sharpen icon and while holding down your left mouse button, move it back and forth over the object you want to sharpen.

How to edit with final cut express from a flash disk


Generally speaking you cannot do this. Flash disks cannot transfer data fast enough for video editing. You need to put the media files on a hard drive, preferable one with 7200 rpm (though some 5400 rpm drives will work).

When i was taking picture the lens of my camera ( sony dsc-w120) become blurd. why'?


The cameras capacity to capture motion pictures is disimpressionful. Usually cameras have feature functionalities either as still picture shoot or motion video recorder devices. Cameras may have any once of the mentioned features or both as complementary for videographic requriements. Inspecte the camera for capacity to capture motion picturee. Usually, the lense capacity with pixel capacities are indication of extensive capabilities. An impressionful camera producign disintergral result requries adjusting the lense or pixles buttons prior to photo shut. Also, cameras that least have the pixel capacity requires photo shoots at still motion or at calm climate least onbracting activities. Capture pictures at areas that least have movement caused by human interfernce or windy or suny blurs. Also, capture pictures maybe retored of blurry filming from computer photo video editor programs. Capture the picture or videos to be loaaded on to a computer that allows editting to achieve desired interfaces.

Not able to down load video from my Panasonic videto Mac Pro 3.1


Basically mac does not like USB, it is bad and uses burst of information not suitable to video so FCP kinda ignores the option. It works ok for the transfer of non-realtime info. Can you not use DV to FW. Loads of people are having this issue as MAC have dropped it with the new MacBook to in my opinion force people to buy MBP.

Get Final Cut Pro 5.04 to communicate with my XH A1


Many HDV cameras and decks are able to play and record DV as well as the higher-resolution HDV format. Additionally, many of these HDV devices will attempt to automatically change their settings to match the format of the tape that it's playing. Here are some tips for using these types of devices with Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
Tip: Make explicit settings on your HDV device. Instead of using an "Auto" setting, make your own settings on your HDV device to keep the communication going between it and Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express. This also helps Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express keep things running smoothly with HDV devices that handle both DV-NTSC and DV-PAL.
For example, say you're using an HDV deck to capture footage from a tape that was recorded as DV-NTSC. Before capturing in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, make sure that you set the deck to DV mode specifically—don't rely on Auto mode. With some devices, you may need to disconnect it from FireWire to change the mode.
For a common capture workflow, this sequence of steps can provide the best results:
  1. Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express if it's open.
  2. Insert your tape into your HDV deck or camcorder.
  3. Use the device's menus to set it to match the format that's recorded on the tape.
  4. Connect your HDV device to your computer with a FireWire cable.
  5. Open Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  6. Choose an Easy Setup for DV or HDV (whichever matches the format recorded on your tape).
  7. Proceed to Log and Capture.
Tip: Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before changing modes. It's generally a good idea to quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before you change the mode on your device from DV to HDV, or from HDV to DV, and then re-open the application again.
Tip: Use an Easy Setup to play back non-default HDV format footage on your HDV device. You can use Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express to make your HDV device play back footage in its non-default HDV format. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i50. Or perhaps you have a 1808i50 HDV device and you want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i60. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Connect your camera to your computer.
  2. In Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, choose an HDV preset Easy Setup that matches the format of the tape's footage (you don't need to restart Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express).
  3. Your device's LCD display should automatically display a switch to 60 or 50, indicating the type of media that's being played.
Playing back non-default DV format footage on your HDV device You can also use your HDV device to play back footage in its non-default DV format too. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-PAL. Or maybe you have a 1080i50 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-NTSC. If so, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that your device is in DV/DVCAM mode.
  2. Put your device into Play/Pause mode, then open the Log and Capture window in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  3. Make sure that your device's LCD (or other readout screen) displays the same format as your tape or Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express will misinterpret what type of device you have.
Tip: Avoid recording both HDV and DV formats on the same tape. Use separate tapes whenever you want to record in a different format. If you need to record over existing footage in a different format (for example, you have a tape with DV-PAL on it, but you want to record over it with HDV 1080i50), it's a good idea to black and code the tape, or completely record over the old footage with contiguous recording in the new format. If the tape contains even a second of, say, DV in the middle of an HDV tape (or vice versa), it could cause unexpected results later when you try to capture video from that tape.
