After having finally got in a routine process for editing my pictures, I'm trying now to get my videos sorted, but it feels like I'm bouncing into a rubber wall! Basically, what I've got is three years of videos, first shot with the LX5, and later with the GX1. I started with the .MTS format, but could not stand that each time I formatted the card, the numbering started from scratch so I switched to .mp4. I set the quality to the highest available. So far, I've been using Windows Movie Maker and found it quite ok for my needs (cutting, titles, fades...), but it lacks some kind of image stabilisation (filming a lot with the 25) and post processing similar to what one would do with .raw images. I'm also completely shocked by the number and variations of available formats for video. Photography is so much simpler... I hope that in this video jungle of programs and formats there is a simple equivalent of raw for shooting (is it AVCHD or mp4?) and Lightroom for editing. If so, please point me there! What I'd like to do is understand a) which format is best to use when filming in order to process it lightly (shake, wb, maybe contrast and ev) b) which program to use c) which format to export to that would maintain the best quality and future-proofness (all videos are of my daughter, I'm sure in 30-40 years I'll want to be able to watch a good quality video!) I'll greatly appreciate your assistance, as I've been googling this for days and seem to wonder around in circles.
