I bought a JVC Everio GZ-H550. The output files are MTS conforming to profile HD 1080i 50 fps.
I rendered with MPEG-4 and H264, tried bitrates from 12000 to 25000. In any case the rendered output is not as smooth as the original. It is noticeable.
I tried to convert the MTS files to mp4 using ffmpeg, same result.
I am running Suse 11.4 and KDEnlive 0.8.2
How could I get a smooth result similar to the original?
