Hello,


I recently got a Panasonic SDT750. The playback is great from the camera directly connected to the tv via HDMI, but very stuttery when using the provided software to play back directly from the SD card. Since I want to use my computer as my video clip repository, I want to convert the format into something that my PC can play without an "out of memory" error, as I get when I try to play .mts files directly from the SD card in WMP. I'm having some trouble though.


I tried to convert the video from 1080p60 to normal AVCHD using the provided software, and it resulted in the output video being played back super fast. I then downloaded the Xilisoft HD Converter demo and tried to convert the video into .H264. Again, I got the same result. How can I convert 1080p60 into something watchable from the computer?


Also, I'm interested in trying out the 3D features of the camera but don't have a 3D TV (I bought it for performance/price rather than 3D capability). Is there a way to convert the recorded 3D type into red/blue 3D that I could watch on a normal TV?


Thanks!

Try to transfer the video clips into your hard disk drive and see if it can solve the stutter problem or not.


Sounds like the "out of memory" issue is caused by WMP, not your PC. You can try other media player like the VLC player. It a freeware, worth a try.


EDIT: If the above method doesn't solve the problems, it might be your PC's processor that doesn't meet the requirement to playback HD video.

There's no need to convert the video into any other format if you just want to 'view' the video.


Most modern PCs are able to view MTS files as long as they have the right software. I recommend using Splash Lite (free). You can download it from here:

I would also like to reiterate the suggestion from querty888 of copying the MTS files from the SD card in your camcorder onto your PC.

I have the same SDT750 camera and HD Writer 2.6T software that came with it.


The software functions smoothly on my Toshiba Satellite, Windows 7 laptop. However, the software flashed a suggestion that I turn off something called "Aero Mode" and put Windows 7 in a "Basic" mode to make it run smoothly. If you have Windows 7, you might try it.


I suggest that you use HD Writer to catalog and transfer your files to your computer. It copies the primary video plus some extra associated files. If you do that, you can use HD Writer to make DVDs that will play in Blu-Ray players without buying a Blu-Ray burner. You can also use it to put the movies back on an SD card or the camera if you want to use the camera as a player. Further, HD Writer will do basic editing, like trimming the bad parts of a clip, without changing or overhauling the original. An "edit" is saved as new copy.


If you transfer the files to you computer any other way, HD Writer won't accept them for anything. You will be forced to use other software that will not do some of HD Writer's good stuff.


3D is a lot of fun. I enjoy it on a Sony 3D TV with the glasses. The ugly SD750 lens works well, despite what some say. Most think 3D is dumb trick forced on consumers by electronics manufacturers. It has been around as long as photography in one form or another, so I don't think it will go away. I haven't tried it, but I think you can up load 3D to YouTube and watch with the colored glasses. YouTube will sell you the glasses.


Have fun!

Bill

Thanks all for the advice! As for my last question though, is it possible to convert the stereoscopic 3D from my camera into anaglyph 3D? I don't have the requisite 3D TV to watch stereoscopic

I googled it a couple of different ways and it appears you can. But, it looks tricky to me.


Here is the link: http://www.pantarheon.org/AviSynth3DToolbox/


If you try it, please post your opinion!

I've also had a lot of luck with Media Player Classic - Home Cinema . It can play some files that Splash Lite won't and most of the time, for me, it seems to be a little smoother. Of course, YMMV.
