hx9v video grab comparisons- original AVCHD file vs conversion to MP4
Apr 21, 2011

I was interested in doing a comparison of video grabs from the excellent Harvard baseball game posted on this forum.

As current video editing software is behind the power curve in its ability to handle AVCHD 1080 60i video files. I converted the original AVCHD file of the clips I downloaded on MegaFiles upload.

I then converted the large 1.1 GB file to an MP4 file that was only 5MB in size using handbrake.

The converted MP4 and AVCHD file when played on my monitor looked virtually identical in video quality

I then made two screen captures of an almost identical closeup of fans in the stands at 100% from the original AVCHD video and the much smaller MP4 video

I was amazed that the two grabs as seen below side by side are very similar in detail resolution.

I would have expected a degradation in the converted video

Am I missing something??
