I had a blast with the HV20 yesterday. Sharing with you all....
h.264 format, over five minutes of footage.

Impressive indeed, Mark! Mpeg4 seems to be able to significantly reduce the file size and still retain very high image quality. What program did you use to edit the video?

I used Vegas. You have to remove the pulldown first manually with a process I've detailed here on the forums. A two step process using HDTVTOMPEG2 and VirtualDUBMod (for PC users). Thanks for the compliments! I had a lot of fun yesterday with the cam.

It has been brought to my attention that the codec I used to compress this isn't playing in Quicktime. I use VLC Player and it plays fine. www.videolan.org

Yep, that's what I had to use.

BTW, could you link me to your workflow process concerning pulldown as stated in your above reply. I looked for it but couldn't find it. I'm very interested in learning about this.

Thank you.

Not sure if it's allowed to post the stuff from other forums here, but there is a similar workflow mentioned in this thread:

I do it a similar way, only using Mpeg Streamclip instead because it can be easily batched. You can also do it with Graphedit.

Mark, could you share your compression settings from Vegas? I assume you used the Main Concept codec? Really impressed with the quality/size ratio.

By the way, I loved the fountain shot towards the end. Looks crazy at 24 frames/s.

Actually, I compressed it for the web after I edited in Vegas. You can use an app called SUPER. It has good H264 encoding. I think what helped the compression was the slow pans. A bit rate between 4-6000 helps too.

For windows users and re-compression lovers.

1) Capture .m2t file.
2) use freeware app, HDTV2MPEG2 to convert to .mpg (seems lossless)
3) use VirtualDubMod (freeware) to remove pulldown from .mpg file under VIDEO, Frame Rate, choose Inverse Telecine Reconstruct from fields Adaptive.
4) Render from VirtualDubMod an .avi in a codec of your choice for your fave Windows NLE editor.
5) You now have 23.976 pure progressive.

P.S. Sometimes VirtualDubMod might leave a stray interlaced frame here and there (not often). It does a good job at removing the pulldown and strict adherence to 23.976.
