iMovie 11 and quality loss with Sony Handycam DCR-SX33e
"Hi folks, I have a Sony Handycam DCR-SX33e (good one!) and iMovie '11 recognizes it, it's able to import movies directly from the cam, creates events, etc... BUT the quality of the movies within iMovie environment is very very poor (i.e. pixels big like a house!) BUT if I look at the movies using QT (from iMovie events, "reveal in Finder" on a movie), the quality is perfect.
Still, if I make a project and finalize it, the exported movies are horribles. I notice that the cam works with a DV-PAL resolution (720x576), but iMovie works with wide resolutions."

How Do I Handle SWF Video Playback Issue Freely

Different strokes for different folks. It also makes sense that hobby varies depending on the personalities of different persons. For instance, the people with strong logical thinking ability love making small inventions. While the ones who are fun-loving and creative will likely to enjoy hobbies related to arts, such as drawing, painting, sculpting or fashion design.
As to myself, I have got many hobbies including reading, drawing, cooking, listening to music, doing sports, watching various movies/videos, etc. I would spend much of my spare time on videos. You may ask where my source videos from are. To tell you what, I have never bought videos from video stores; instead, I downloaded them from the video-sharing websites such as YouTube, Vimeo, etc. I also get the videos from my friends. In this way, I can appreciate as many videos as possible free of charge, isn't it great?
Up till now, there are a ton of different kinds of videos storing on my computer, such as .mp4, avi, .mov, .wmv, swf, etc.It is good to have so many resources, but handling them is not an easy job. You know, different media players/applications support the specified video formats, for example, if I want to play the funny SWF animation on my HTC One, I have to convert SWF to MP4 Mac, making the animation acceptable by the phone. In order to play all of my videos freely, I decided to download the third-party tool called DoremisoftSWF Converter for Mac. It is said that this converter is able to convert SWF video to any other popular videos such as MOV, MP4, FLV, AVI, WMV, MPEG, MKV, 3G2, 3GP, AVI, DV, etc. Besides, it can also transcode SWF to audios in AAC, MP3, FLAC, M4A, etc with no quality loss on Mac OS. Besides, it supports transferring SWF videos to lots of popular media devices including iPad, iPhone, iPod, Apple TV, Samsung, Kindle Fire, Black Berry, Game Console, HTC, Mobile Phone, etc. After several tests, I found it really of great help. I mean, it not only carries out the conversion quickly, but with superb high output quality as well. Oh, before I forgot, this converter can help to upload SWF videos to websites for sharing. There was one time I wanted to share a piece of wonderful animation on YouTube, I have tried for over four times but failed. Later, I got to know that YouTube cannot support SWF format but FLV instead. So, I turned to the SWF converter for help. To my delight, there are built-in optimal presets for websites including YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook. It didn't take me half an hour before I succeeded in convert SWF to FLV Mac for YouTube. Obviously, I was able to upload the converted animation on YouTube smoothly. Guess what, lots of friends love this video very much.

How to Upload Videos to Personal Websites Easily

Up till now, a large number of people own their personal websites. As we know, a personal website can be used as a bridge to connect us and other people all over the world. We can exchange our thoughts/ideas, share interests/hobbies as well as sharing something interesting such as books, poems, beautiful music/video, TV shows, etc.

Occasionally, we will need to upload some videos to the website for sharing, be it the public websites like YouTube or your our own websites. Some people will find it difficult to do this task. Actually, it will be much easier by following the proper steps as below:

Step 1. Select a Proper Hosting Site. To upload a video, the very first thing we need to do is to choose a proper hosting site for hosting the videos online. Frankly speaking, YouTube is one of the best choices of course; you can choose other popular video-sharing websites such as Vimeo, Hulu, etc as you like. As to uploading videos to our own websites, we can use a content delivery network which offers the customized video players and content management systems, so that we can arrange video publication freely as we wish.

Step 2. Convert and Compress the Source Video File. Due to the format issue, we cannot upload any videos to the websites directly. Before doing so, we will need to convert the source video to the format which can be accepted by the video hosting site we chose. The reason is that most video hosting sites cannot support many video formats, and they also have the limitation for the video size as well. To make it easier to understand, let's give an example: We need to upload some wonderful MP4/MPG/WMV videos to the websites for sharing, but we find that those videos are of large size and cannot be supported by various browsers. So, we will have to convert those video formats to SWF-which's in a much smaller size and has got maximum compatibility with most browsers. That is to say, we need to convert WMV to SWF, MP4 to SWF or transcode MPG to SWF with the help of third-party software.

Step 3.Connect to the Web. As is known to us all, a majority of video-sharing websites and CDNs(content delivery networks) have got a built-in interface, making it very easy to find the source video from our computer and then upload it to the sites. A high-speed internet connection is strongly required to ensure a quick and smooth uploading. Or, you will have to wait impatiently during the video uploading process.

A Quick Look at the PS4 and Xbox One

Currently, the Xbox 360 and PS3 are the top 2 game console kings on the market. It is reported that both of them have sold over 75 million units as of the end of 2012. The Gamescom 2013 delivered an important message to the public that, Sony would finally officially unveil the PS4 on 29 November, while the Xbox One would land on 22 November. Will the next generation prove as popular? Well, it is still too early to tell.
Now, gamers are focusing on the two next-gen consoles. Apparently, there will be furious competition between these new devices. Consumers will be in a dilemma of which one to choose since both of them are doing great. Although there are less than two months away from the final release dates, we still have the luck to get the first hand-on look at the devices. Needless to say, there are great differences in the design, optical drive, motion control, storage, specs, etc. However, they have got the most headline-grabbing feature in common---both PS4 and Xbox One are able to support 4K movie streaming! In simple words, besides playing games, consumers can also play 4K movie with PS4 and the Xbox One or big screen TV. Notes: most 4K movies are recorded in MXF/RAW/XAVC formats which are not supported by either the PS4 or Xbox One. The alternative is use a powerful 4K video converter to convert 4K video to Xbox One or PS4 most friendly MPEG-4 H.264 format.
Enjoying video is great, but the basic function of a console is to play games. Based on a latest investigation, there are 10 most-wanted next-gen games for the Xbox One and PS4. The name list is as below:
1. Tom Clancy's The Division(to be released in 2014)
2. Project Spark(TBD)
3. Watch_Dogs(to be released on Nov. 19, 2013)
4. Titanfall(to be released in Spring 2014)
5. Knack(to be released in November 2014)
6. Destiny(to be released in 2014)
7. The Crew(to be released in Early 2014)
8. Final Fantasy XV(TBD)
9. Quantum Break(to be released in 2014)
10.Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain(TBD)
The Gamescom 2013 unveiled the entire list of games for the PS4 and Xbox 360 which include Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, Battlefield 4, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Skylanders: Swap Force and Watch Dogs, Driveclub, Just Dance 2014, FIFA 14, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, Madden NFL 25, NBA 2K14, NBA LIVE, Need for Speed: Rivals, etc. However, it's not the games that come to both consoles would affect consumers' final buying decision. Instead, the overall performance as well as the price of the devices have the greater influence. What do you think?

Three Reasons of buying a camcorder

You see, men's tastes are various. Some people like reading, some like travelling while others like making movies/videos. The truth is, not every one of them has owned a camcorder, but they do posse some kind of devices capable of recording videos, such as smartphones(iPhone 4S/5, HTC One, Galaxy S4, etc) and tablets(iPad 4/2, new iPad, etc)and more. The remarkable thing is that the quality of the videos recorded by those gadgets isn't not bad--sometimes it is extremely sharp & high-definition. So, here is the question: do we still need to buy a standlone camcorder(Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10,Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3, etc) since we have already owned something capable of doing the "job"? Does it make sense to get a camcorder?
Actually, it is really a personal choice when comes to the purchasing a camcorder. However, we do find out three reasons for owning a camcorder.
1. Video Quality.

Yes, we have to admit that some smartphones or tablets shoot videos in not bad quality. This is why so many people decided to abandoned camcorders and jumped onto those video-capable devices bandwagon. More and more smartphones are coming up like mushrooms, claiming to offer "superior video quality". However, after professional tests on a camcorder and a smartphone, we can easily find that a high-end camcorder provides much better video performance than a so-called all-in-one smartphone. In fact, this result isn't surprising at all. When comparing a cheap camcorder with an ordinary camera, there is slight difference on the quality of recorded videos. However, a camcorder still excel a camera at the same price range, because most camcorders will have more video recording options as well as the video editing software, helping users to upload video clips to websites such as Facebook or YouTube. Tips: Without any doubt, the built-in editing function in a camcorder cannot measure up to te professional editing systems like iMovie/Final Cut Pro, therefore, if you would like to make the video clips more attractive, it is the best to edit them in the professional editors. For example, get a 4K camcorder, then convert 4K xavc video to mov for editing with final cut pro.
2. Internal Memory

By "camcorder", we mean the one that records on flash memory or a built-in hard drive. Of course, there may be another one memory card slot used to record additional video content. Generally speaking, the memory capacity of a smartphone or tablet isn't quite large. Let's say, the iPhone 5 has not card slot and it provides 1 GB RAM, 16/32/64GB storage at the most. The point is, when you are shooting large amounts of videos especially the HD video , you will be driven crazy by swapping cards or transferring the recorded videos to a computer before continue shooting. No one can bear it, right? As to a camcorder, you won't have that trouble since it provides a very large storage capacity.
3. The Audio

Obviously, a camcorder records audio in better quality than a smartphone or tablet does. The reason lies in the built-in mics they used. Almost all traditional camcorders have got the good quality built-in stereo microphones, but there are some that go above and beyond by including 5.1-channel Dolby Digital microphones instead. While on the other hand, a smartphone will usually use the tiny monaural mics, resulting in bad audio quality. Notes: you can adjust the audio volume by using certain software, for example, when import AVCHD to Final Cut Pro with the help of third-party video converter, you can use the built-in editing features to customize the audio freely.
So, we think it worthy buying a camcorder. What is your idea?
