I'm just beginning to film some of my outdoor trips. I've never filmed really anything before and not real tech savvy. The first hurdle I ran into is converting formats so that they can be uploaded onto the internet. I'd like to be able to share them with family and friends back home.
I got some great footage of two black bears while fishing on a lake down on the KP, it's in 60p and 1920x1080 HD. But I haven't been able to do anything with it in it's current format. I guess with Canons, the format is in an MVI format and nothing on the internet will allow it to be uploaded in that format.
Finally, to my question. Can anyone recommend a program for converting video formats? What about editing? There seems to be a thousand different programs for this but it's hard to get a line on which are best. The biggest thing to me is being able to keep the image quality from the original when changing formats. I've tried a couple "free" trial versions and the quality is horrible after conversion.
