    I have a simple problem I can't figure out.

    We just purchased a brand new Sony camcorder: Full HD HDR-PJ760V. The video quality in my PC is stunning, but once I edit
    the movie in my Pinnacle Studio HD v.14 and render it out, it looses quality. For the format I tried: MPEG4 and AVI. They both loose so much quality it almost makes the video not watchable.

    Not to mention the rendered file is twice as big comparing to the original video.

    Can you guys tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    That's odd, you say it's a brand new camcorder? Was the box sealed from the factory?

    The first, logical explanation is that you chose the wrong settings in Pinnacle. AVI is simply a container that can hold anything from crap to uncompressed video(and audio). What was the extension on that "MPEG 4" file you created? What video codec did you use inside that "AVI" file you created?

    Sometimes shoplifters do a switcharoo, and you end up with an older model.

    There should be render settings to get back to AVCHD or Blu-ray (similar quality), internet upload (compromised and frame rate reduced) or DVD (downsized to 720x480).

    60P (AVCHD 2.0) Blu-ray players will be introduced later this year.

    The Sony HDR-PJ760V can shoot 1920x1080p60 (AVCHD 2.0) but current Blu-ray players won't play that format.

    Panasonic was first out with proprietary 1080p60. Recently Panasonic, Sony and the other AVCHD players agreed on a standard. This was then applied to the new Blu-ray standard as well but there are no 1080p60 Blu-ray players out yet.

    Actually Sanyo was, then Panasonic bought Sanyo and put 1080p in their own models

    But it seems the OP has left the building or doesn't care anymore... If you still want help, list the project settings, export settings

    1920x1080p60 is still useful for direct display to an HDTV or to some computer monitors.

    I've discovered 1920x1080p60 or 1280x720p60 work great in Vegas for down conversion to 480i DVD. Each HD frame is individually downsized to a DVD field with no deinterlace artifacts. Same goes for HD 50p to DVD 50i.
