Hi Everyone....I'm new to the video world so please bear with me...there's a lot to learn! I have recently agreed to help a friend create a 10-12 minute marketing video from a lot of footage that I didn't shoot. I know the video is m2ts format and I converted to m4v using iSkysoft on my Mac and am using FCE 4 to edit. I've had no problem editing segments, still images, adding text overlays, etc., but when I export to 1280 x 720HD or 1280 x 720 16:9, the footage is grainy. Here's my question....did I do something incorrectly when I converted the video initially to m4v or am I doing something wrong when I export. My friend would like this video to play on 42-47" HD tv's....what can I do so the footage isn't grainy? Looks GREAT on my 17 and 21" computer screens but it goes downhill from there!
Again...thanks in advance for putting up with me and my 'newbie' questions!
