hi
i've recently been editing a fanfilm i made and i noticed when i first started editing that effectslab pro only supported avi or mov. so i downloaded some video converters. So after the conversion was complete my video quality was very bad. everytime someone in the movie would walk or do something it would be all blurry. Out of all the converters i downloaded the one called Winfxvideoconverter was the best, but the export quality was still terrible. I went searching all over the net for good video converters but i couldn't find any.
I know there must be at least one good converter out there, because i looked at all the films on this website and the quality was great on most.
so if anyone knows of any goood converters, please let me know
thankx ps: if it helpd i film with a JVC Everio S GZ-MS120 (capture format is MPEG-2)

Many people overlook the fact that their video editing program can likely handle any conversion they need to perform, and that another program specifically for conversion often isn't necessary. Export the video from your editing software to Uncompressed .mov or .avi and you should be fine. If you prefer to have a program specifically for converting, I'd recommend QuickTime Pro over anything else on the market. Its $30, rock solid, and can handle nearly every format out there. but before you spend any money, try your editor, even simple editors like WMM and iMovie are capable of exporting to .avi or .mov footage.
