Shooting settings for optimal viewing in FCE (Canon Vixia HF

by live432 / August 21, 2009 3:09 AM PDT

Hi, I own the Canon Vixia HF20 and I've read in various places to shoot/record in the Cinema Mode setting if you're looking to make movie-esque videos. Additionally, I found this last night in the camcorder user manual "Combine the Cinema Mode recording program with the 24 fps progressive frame rate (PF24) to get the enhanced effect of the 24p Cinema Mode.

I have absolutely no idea what the difference is between 60i, PF30 or PF24. I've already shot a lot of stuff on the 60i setting. Is there a huge difference between 60i vs. PF24. Drawbacks? Recommendations? Ultimately, I'm trying to record on the best settings for optimal compatibility with FCE.

I'm a huge novice as far the tech specs so any help is appreciated. Thanks and sorry for the long winded post.

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?
