2 separate questions - Home Monitoring and using iMovie
Hello all, thank you for this great forum!
I'm very much a newbie when it comes to making videos. The Panasonic v720 is my first camcorder of any kind and I have no video editing experience, but I'm looking forward to home videos of my newborn and 3 year old and learning more about video-making and my v720 in general.
1) I was playing around with the home monitoring feature today and while I was able to send a voice message from my phone to the camera, I couldn't figure out how to send a voice message from my camera to my phone. What simple step am I missing?
2) I have a MacBook Pro with iMovie. I've been recording in 1080/60i which imports into iMovie fairly easily with the USB cable. I'd like to record in 1080/60p and save the original AVCHD files (to have the highest quality originals for potential future use) while also working with them in iMovie. To get the 1080/60p files into iMovie, I'll need to use a converter and I understand the quality will be decreased after conversion, which I'm ok with. There are many of these converters online and some of the websites look of questionable legitimacy. Any Mac users who can talk about their experience and offer recommendations?
Thank you in advance!
