So ive been using by Canon XHA1 for well over a year now and I sadly have not been able to use my Fxhome software with my HD footage. I can import the footage into Vlab but when it comes to exporting it my exported clip looks like its in a really slow motion. What can I do to correct this issue? I really want to start using my Fxhome software again.

Anyone else have this issue or know how to fix it?

My hunch (assuming you're exporting at the right framerate) is that the file is something like a raw AVI, just too big for your computer to play back properly. Instead, export it compressed, it may play just fine.

If its exactly half speed, then it could be related to getting your scan mothod/interlacing settings incorrect.

Yeah, main thing to check are you project settings. There's no reason for VisionLab to treat HD video any differently to SD video.

Thanks the responses guys, Its not at exactly half speed but I agree its probably something with the interlace settings. Ive tried many attempts with different settings but no luck. Im thinking about uploading one of my clips from Vlab onto Youtube so you guys can give me a better diagnostic, good idea?

Mmm, Youtube is going to completely change the format of the clip, so if you can possibly upload it to a proper host, it would be much better.
