It would be good to allow mpeg-2 files into the program. cause it would allow more options plus It would really help me. BUt that's if you want to. it's just a suggestion

Suggestions like this have come up several times. They usually say it's because .AVI and mpeg (I think this is the other format) are uncompressed formats, and so they retain the most quality in your footage. This is to ensure you get the best results possible.

Just a little correction here - Avi & Mov is the 2 your looking for and these are not 'uncompressed' formats, file sizes would be rediculous if they were, why the fxhome software supports avi and mov but not mpg-2 is that the first 2's compression systems are well known for really good quality video but mpg-2 is nowhere near as good. When capturing video from a camcorder - generally - you'd capture to avi or mov mainly because these formats will give the best compromise between picture quality and filesize, chances are that you will then do some compositing & effects which will need recompressing once done thus loosing a little bit more quality & if you then edit different clips together in an editor then yet another recompression will be done loosing even more quality. If you did this process with mpg-2 video it would look pretty crap after all the recompression's. So have faith, fxhome products have been designed to give us punters the highest quality system to work with.
