Help with Panasonic HDC-SD100 ?

by Travanian / July 22, 2013 4:18 PM PDT

Hi all. Pls help if you can. If I record footage at the highest setting (1080) and play it straight back from camcorder to a tv its PERFECT. If I take out the memory card and transfer the footage from card to laptop, when I play it back on laptop it looks a little blurred ? Seems like something cant keep up like its dragging behind ? I see lines as the footage pans lets say from left to right ?
Hope iv explained this properly. Im running Windows 7 64bit 6gb Ram.

Given no PC details.

All I can write is that this was expected to happen on many PCs.

Nothing really new going on here, but a budding film maker might be jolted by how much computer power is required to work with HD video.

Given the story so far.

I can't offer much. I know folk don't want to reveal much but as it stands I can't make good suggestions. That is, playing the usual 1080 content on a 768 line screen will take more horsepower than say playing on a 1080 screen. I hope, as a movie editor you can see why.

Poor video
by Terfyn / July 24, 2013 5:40 PM PDT

I specd. a new computer about a year ago to run the latest editor suites. I copied the PC specification from Pinnacle Studio which I was using at the time and passed it on to my computer dealer to come up with a box that either matched or bettered the given spec. I have now updated to VideoStudio Pro X6 which performs equally as well.

One option is to run Belarc Advisor which will give you a summary of your PC bits and bobs! I run Windows 7 64bit and the spec of my PC is:-
motherboard: ASUSTeK P8H61-MX
processor: Intel Corei5-2320
ram: 8Gb
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 210
sound_card: NVIDIA High Def Audio
Hard_Drive_Capacity: 1000 Gb

I only give this as an example.

Is processor capacity or speed a problem?

Incidentally my system is in a tower simply because it is easier to update or add components. I run two screens, one shows the video as it is being edited and the main screen has the editor controls on it. I had to add a FireWire card to the system for my Canon HV20 and I use the SD card reader for my Panasonic HC-V700.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
