I have Samsung's VP-HMX20C videocamera, which records mp4-type videos and I'd like to handle it with CompositeLab. As we all know that CompositeLab doesn't work with mp4-type, so what is the best way to convert mp4 to avi or mov that full-hd quality remain. I wanna also suggest to FXHome-team that they add mp4-support to CompositeLab (and maybe their other products).

Depending what OS you use, there are a bunch of converting software for this if you use google.
I don't think any Lab programs would incorporate using .mp4s as that is a highly compressed format used for final delivery vie email or Youtube etc.
For visual effects, you always want the best quality when compositing.

If you have a video editor that can import the .mp4's then you can probably just export from that editor to uncompressed .avi or .mov video files. the quality is purely an issue of what codec you decide to use, there are a fair number of high-quality codecs available for either .avi or .mov. In fact, either one offers vastly superior quality to what you can get with .mp4.

Try converting to a uncompressed AVI format like DV-AVI or a high bitrate XVID compressor. You can use Digital Media Converter Pro for the conversion. Download here: http://www.deskshare.com/audio-video-converter.aspx
