PROBLEMS WITH MP4 FOOTAGE AND SLOW SHUTTER SPEEDS.

Hi.

I rented Sony Ex1 and shot footage at 16fps t 1080. the sony yeilds mp4 format files which play fine on a player, however the edditing programs just cant seem to comprahend them.

I was wondering if there is a way to convert thats footage to a format that keeps every frame and brings it up to 24fps with out loosing quality?

I would prefer the end result as a tiff or targa.

[Teto Elsidd] "I rented Sony Ex1 and shot footage at 16fps t 1080."
I'm guessing QuickMotion (overcrank) but was the time base 24p, 25p or 30p?
[Teto Elsidd] "the sony yeilds mp4 format files"
MPEG-2 long GOP with .mp4 extension in a BPAV folder that you should not take them out of.

[Teto Elsidd] "which play fine on a player, "
Could you describe this a little less vaguely?
Of course if you're doing this on a Play Station 3 I'd love to hear how you did it.

[Teto Elsidd] "edditing programs just cant seem to comprahend them."
I've never known and editing program to comprehend files. They may or may not decode them or may or may not be able to import them or may or may not be able to play them without rendering. They certainly won't work in iMovie or Windows Movie Maker.

[Teto Elsidd] "I was wondering if there is a way to convert thats footage to a format that keeps every frame and brings it up to 24fps with out loosing quality? "
We still have no idea how you shot the video or what you've tried to play them in and what actually happened.
[Teto Elsidd] "I would prefer the end result as a tiff or targa."
Give the above I can't fathom a rationale nor have you given us one.

What does any of this have to do with slow shutter speeds?

I apologize if the above in any way is offensive but this seems more like a riddle than an inquiry.
I am both a compressionist and an Sony EX user and don't understand what you've done, what you're trying to do, what your goal is.

Please read my comments and see if you can understand my confusion and maybe you can post exactly what you did. Even if you're not quite sure if it was the best way to do it.

Imagine describing your right hand to a doctor even if you're not quite sure what makes the fingers move. Do that.

XDCAM EX and Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 workflow Straight from Sony's support site.

XDCAM EX NLE Workflow guides

Some manufactures really do try to provide answers (even they aren't always the best written).

Guess how I knew you were using Adobe Premiere Pro CS3?

I can't guess why you posted here and not in the COW Sony XDCAM EX forum.
