I just change the file extension to .mpg because .mod files are mpg-2 files. reply

Did you find out the answer to your shuddering video problem? I am having the same problems, ie when the camera or any subject moves the video shudders on the DVD but nothing indicates there is a problem in the program. Can you help please?

Ok, I’ve just read through all 16 pages of this thread and there’s some great information here - seems many people are struggling....

I haven’t figured out how to solve my particular problem.
I want to take the .MOD files from my JVC Everio MG57, add in a photo slideshow, and burn to DVD (with a simple menu screen) that can play on standard PAL DVD players.

Steps as follows (all clips recorded in 16:9 ratio).
1. Copy .MOD files from camcorder to PC
2. rename .mod to .mpg
3. Use Adobe Premier Elements 2.0 and import the mpg files.
4. Add files to timeline with some title text and markers etc. Not edited the clips at all
5. Add photos for slideshow
6. Burn to DVD (using adobe premier).

The results when played in a DVD player are a juddering or flickering when the camera moves or the subject moves. Rendering the timeline makes no difference.
Using 'Clip->video options->remove flickering' does remove the flickering but has a side-effect where the clip jumps a frame or so every few seconds.
The other 'Clip->video options' around interlacing or deinterlacing make things worse.....

If I use cyberlink’s power producer and just write the mpeg file on its own to DVD, the results are perfect - DVD quality, no jumping or flickering, exactly as recorded. Obviously I *could* use this cyberlink software, but it’s a bit clunky and I much prefer Premier Elements editing functions.

Any tips on removing the flickering when using Permier Elements? One post mentioned about a problem with the 4:3 vs 16:9 ratio when copying but I’m not sure I understand what I need to do here.

Any help much appreciated.

Hey guys. I had the same problem for the MOD files when I wanted to edit them in premiere. Took me a while to find out what would be good to use to convert the video to an mpeg-2 format seeing as an MOD file is mpeg-1, and I found this easy to use software, very user friendly, gives you tons of options for conversion.
It’s made by Cyberlink and it’s called PowerDirector.
works great for me hope it’ll work great for you

Cheers,

I have had this JVC camera since last Christmas - I do not understand why MOD has to be so complicated - I am soooo confused. I renamed the MOD to AVI and MPG, etc. - It plays on real player but it will not import into Movie Maker. I also ran the file thru Prism Converter (Free Converter Software) - and was able to import into Movie Make, however it seemed that the quality was low. Any advice.

Whats the best video camera out there that saves the file as AVI. I am ready to buy camera #5! reply

ERomano, you are wrong, .MOD files are most definitely MPEG2. Furthermore, most users would already be aware of Cyberlink since it comes bundled with the camera, however, if you bothered to read the thread you would quickly discover that it is unable to do batch conversions and is fairly unstable, so it is of limited use to power users.

Zabeat, again, .MOD files are MPEG2, so change the extension to .mpg, ensure you have an AC3 audio codec installed and the files should open in windows media player.

Movie Maker is a joke - consider a decent video editor like Premiere Elements. (Avoid Cyberlink!)

File converters have many, many options - you have to either set the program to retain the resolution and bit rate of the original file, or trial and error until you get the quality you want.

Free software is usually awful compared to commercial products - but if you buy the right software (Premiere Elements) you won’t need to do ANY converting.

No hard drive camera I’m aware of saves anything but MPEG2 files - the bit rate is too high to save full quality DV files to a hard drive in real time. AVI is not a file format, it’s a container format - within many AVI files lurks an MPEG2 video file! Chances are that the conversion to the AVI container format converts the .MOD files AC3 audio to something more commonly supported and does very little to alter the MPEG2 content. I suggest you investigate this thread a little more paying particular attention to discussion about AC3 audio codecs.

I have had great success with Premiere Elements and I’m reliably informed that the new version of iMovie supports .MOD files. Those would have to be the best two choices IMO. reply

I am trying to import the files to windows movie maker. When i try to import it (in mpg or avi formats) it says MOV010.avi (or mpg) could not be imported. An interface has too many methods to fire events from. What does this mean and how can i fix it? reply

Use something other than Windows Movie Maker would be my suggestion. reply

Gato last posted here almost two years ago dude. I think you’ll just have to help yourself - read the thread - pretty much all the answers are here already if you are willing to put the effort into finding out for yourself.

Alternatively, try this other thread at another forum - more excellent information: http://www.camcorderinfo.com/bbs/t124055.html reply
