Question about Panasonic HDC-SD1 Camcorder

1 Answer

IMovie capture is poor quality.

I have a Panasonic HDC-SD1 HD camcorder.  iMovie will play the video when the camera is attached.  But after capturing, the picture is so distorted.  I've checked the settings on both the computer and the camera and can find no issue.  I am beginning to suspect something wrong in the camera that doesn't download the file correctly.  Can you assist?

    I have a Panasonic SDR-H20 that, when connected to my TV, plays the video with great quality.  But when it's captured in iMovie, the quality is seriously reduced.  I'm sure I have the transfer settings at the highest quality.  Can anybody help?

Hello referring to the SD1 from Panasonic, i recommend to deinterlace the captured clips with "JES Deinterlacer" before editing them with imovie. be careful to use "apple intermediate code" at the output of JES Deinterlacer. i clearly get better results this way, max recommendable size at 1280x720p when exporting QT files... kind regards, bruno

I have a Panasonic HDC-SD5 camera and it doesn't work on I-Mac. The Mac can't read the files. What should I do to work with it on I movie ? Is there any driver for the mac ?


HDC-SD5 + iMac = perfect compatibility
I have an iMac (early 2011).-I remove the SDHC card from the camera-plug the card directly into the iMac SD slot (Below the CD/DVD slot) -wait 5 seconds till iMovie or Final Cut X download high-quality HD video.
I was digitizing video on a Mac IIx back in the late 1980's, a long, tiresome error-ridden process that only just worked.The tools we have today are brilliant.Anybody wanting to do serious or hobby video on a computer needs one of Steve Jobs' babies.No downloads of drivers, no conversions, no installation.Just plug 'n play.
Hope this helps

Can't view or editvideo on my pc or mac computer


You need a PC with a fast core 2 duo or quad core processor, plus a NVIDIA Geforce 8400 or better grade graphics processor to play AVCHD files in native format. To convert them to other formats, a similarly strong PC and AVCHD compatible editing software also helps. Nero, Ulead, Vegas, iMovie, and Pinnacle offer competing programs. But make sure your PC is adequately powered.
