      Is your footage HD? Try converting to DVCPro HD

      Depending on what converting program you have and what system you are editing on will make a difference. Since you can’t use MP4 I am guessing you are using a PC. If that is the case you could covert the files to an MPEG 2 file that is the same resolutions as your raw video files. If you are working on a Mac MOV file would work the best. See how that works.
