I know this has been hashed and re-hashed a million times on-line but I haven't seen any postings anywhere with this specific question.
Using a Windows computer I need to edit a .mov file from a high-def 1080 camcorder. Windows Movie Maker will not edit .mov files and there are hundreds of video converting programs on-line BUT every one of the converting programs I've tried SIGNIFICANTLY decreases resolution of the video.
I bought a 1080 camera and after the video conversion, I end up with 480, maybe 720 at best - and that converted 720 looks like total crap.
Here are my questions :
Does anyone know how I can convert the 1080 video to a file that Windows Movie Maker will work with without losing quality
and / or
Does anyone know of a program that I can edit 1080 .mov files on a Windows Computer ? (without converting the video in the first place !)
Thanks in advance for any constructive help anyone can give me,
