seems anything shot on my canon t3i and transferred to computer, stutters.

 

Ive tried playing it from the sd card directly and also moving the file to the hard drive... still stutters.

 

it plays back fine in the camera, so I know the recording was ok.

 

I play it back on the G5mac in quicktime and it stutters. Ive tried dropping it on the timeline in FCP6, still stutters.

 

took the card to the camera store. they played it back on Their mac and it works fine.

 

is there a certain codec I need to playback a file from an SD card?

 

OTHER videos like things Ive made before, they playback fine on my machine.

G5 Power Mac, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 2x 2.6Ghz DCPs, 8GB Ram, 4+TB storage Acer X243W

    What codec is it in now?

    G5 PowerMac? 60 FPS? I'd bet the stutter would go away if you converted it to ProRes. But will probably take 15-20 mins just to convert 3 mins of footage.

     

    Time to upgrade to an Intel iMac: maybe a new i7 iMac with 16GB RAM and FCPX; especially after the last few updates.

    No matter what I do to my Grandmother's Model-T Ford:

     

    •  Put on chrome wheels

     

    •  Wash and wax it

     

    •  Install updated spark plugs.. etc.

     

    It still is not approporiate to drive it on today's modern Expressways!

     

    My advice is: go see what the people over at Wise Guys Productions are doing; they seem to be all over this problem!

    No, I am saying that no matter how much you update your old G5 PowerMac, that machine is not going to cut it!

     

    As to which modern day mac is best for your needs, I suggest that you discuss this issue with mac users who edit professionally and those over on the Ken Stone website (specifically the thread linked above), seem to be all over this issue for you!

     

    Report back your decision...

    Do you have iMovie to try playing it?

    Can you run the file through MediaInfo Mac and post the results of the video/audio specifications...

     

    For example:
