Hi Forum:

I am thrilled to see a conversation about underwater video.  I have a problem that maybe, just maybe someone out there can help me with.  I do recreational underwater video with an old Sony HC-7 HD video camera (housed).  It is a tape based camera, about 5 years old, and there is the problem.  I'm a novice video editor and started using iMovie.  But now the software in iMovie will not upload my video in HD.  Through various contortions I can upload video into iMovie from the camera, but only in DV and the reduction in quality is totally unsatisfactory.

The problem is this - the camera default for uploading in 1080i is audio at 16 bit.  Apparently this doesn't work with iMovie.  If I down convert to DV, I can adjust the audio to 12bit, and then am able to import the video.  But the HD is completely lost.  As you can imagine it was a huge investment in the camera and the fancy Gates housing, and I have all this video I can't work with.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can try to work around this?  Is there an easy alternative to iMovie out there that would work and allow me to import the video in 1080i, and then do simple editing, adding text, and then post to You Tube?  Anyone else have this problem and figured out how to get around it?

I have been so frustrated, and have some awesome underwater video I want to share but haven't figured out how to upload it.

Thanks SO VERY much to any help, ideas, suggestions.  Hopefully someone in this wonderful community can help me out.

Best fishes,
Diane Davidson
