First time post and a new HV30 user (so please go easy on me!)
I'm using Vegas movie studio platinum to capture HD video from the HV30 filmed at 50i, using firewire.
If I play back my footage and view it on the canon's lcd screen, the video has strong colour and contrast and seems to run silky smoothly.
If I play the same footage on my PC (in preview, rendered, or watching .m2t files direct in vlcmediaplayer) it doesn't seem as smooth (almost half the frame rate?) and the video looks washed out / has lost some of the contrast.
Anyone else had this? Is it just the case that video will always look amazing played on the camera screen because it isn't being transfered or compressed during capture? Or am I doing something wrong during capture?
I haven't played with any settings. This is all straight out of the box.
