Re: Wait, what?

Someone said that the ccd will do 30fps max. It that's true, then to supply 60fps in the output file (apparently required by AVCHD 720p/60), either the frames are being duplicated, or the processor is working to take snapshots and looking at frames forward and backward to interpolate and create intermediate (every other) frames between the snapshot frames.

I don't know how h.264 works, but I've read that it's a "motion-compensation-based codec", so that may be happening. In that case, this could be great for video quality because your getting twice the resolution, providing the codec does a good job. It still would be a nice option to forgo that to store twice the video though.

Does anyone know how h.264 works? I've done a bit of reading but not enough, obviously.
