Problem Shooting High Definition Video

by candice


I'm using a Sony HDR- FX7 camera and shooting interiors for house tours. Sometimes I use a wide angle lens, sometime just the regular lens; my camera is mounted onto a Manfrotto tripod.

When I pan, everything looks clear on my LCD but once I edit the footage, I have what looks like a shake in my pan shots... I'm shooting in 1080i and I use imovie to edit.

I then export to quicktime before I upload to YouTube. Without fail, most of my pans are "bumpy". What am I doing wrong? Is it imovie that can't handle Hi def? HELP!!
Below is a link to an example of my bumpy stuttering pans... !

Hi Candice,

The video is beautifully shot and that is some house ;-)

Are you getting the judder when playing back in iMovie or only when you upload to video?

If it happens in the playback, then the problem is iMovie and you may want to consider getting a better editing program like Final Cut Pro for the Mac.

If it only happens when uploading to video, I suggest you upload in an HD format (MP4) and see if that solves the problem.

Best of luck,

Mr Video :-)
