  1. Hello Guys!

    I am trying to edit some videos filmed using a Sony camera.
    I got an AVCDH file... but when I try to watch it... is blurred, without focus.
    I can't see definition.

    Is it something related to the extension?
    I've tried to convert to another extensions, got it with success, but still blurred.

    Can someone help me?

  2. How are you viewing it? The most likely explanation is you shot it out of focus.

    Yeah, "out-of-focus blurring" is not really a feature of not being able to correctly read a file. You can either see it, or you can't. Or you see it but the coding and/or sub-sampling is off, in which case you would have bad colors or blockiness.* But out of focus blurring is pretty much down to how you shot it.

    *To get technically accurate, the only time where blurriness comes into play with encoding is in progressively-downloaded SCALABLE-RESOLUTION encodings, where you have only gotten an early, incomplete scan (low rez scale) of the whole file. In video circles, those types of encodings are VERY RARE.

    Or maybe the lens was fogged up. Example would be, you took it out of cold storage and shot footage in high humidity situation.

    Either way, you'll likely have to re-shoot..........
