Should I get I Different Camcorder?
Alright, so I just got a Canon FS100 camcorder (SDHC recording) and
when I got some test footage and put on my computer, I coundn't import
it into any editing programs because the camcorder records to ".mov"
files. I realise there's video converting programs which convert
".mov" to ".avi" files, but using these sacrifice video quality. I
still have one or two more days to return my camera, so what would be
best to do?
PS: I posted this in Media & Arts already and didn't get any replies, so I figured I'd get more replies in NSG.
someone must know something...
try find another editing program if you like the camera, if not go get a dfferent camera.. Im sure there is a better solution but thats all I got..
someone help this person out will ya?

if you use the editing program Sony Vegas 8.0 Pro, it takes pretty much any format you can think of without sacrificing quality.
im sure premiere does as well
I haven't tried Vegas yet, but in Premiere it doesn't work.
wait..so the camera records into .mov..and you cant change that in some way?
I can change it, but it reduces video quality.
i mean actually change it on the camera
i find it very hard to believe that premier wont read a .mov file. especially because thats what it usually renders in.

and those who don't, never get laid."
maybe I'm just doing something devastatingly wrong?
