Hi Hitfilm gurus. I have an issue with importing video from an older Sony Handi-Cam. I have purchased the add-on that allows me to import the MPEG2 stream but as the format is the old SD 720x576 format, both the trimmer preview and the movie preview (once the clip is dragged to the timeline) show it squashed up and not at all pretty. I agree to have Hitfilm change the timeline settings when I import the clip into the timeline and make sure it is the same (720 x 576 at 25FPs) and have tried changing settings manually but it always looks as if the image is stuck in a lift door. The media thumbnail after import looks correct, but the previews aren't.
I'm obviously doing something wrong as these clips import and format correctly with most other video editors I've trialled (but have rejected because Hitfilm is the best of the bunch for me). It's just a shame the clips, of which I have many from my old camera, do not look right in the software. Can someone point me in the right direction? Cheers, Dave.
