What are the recommended codecs to have installed for mac? if you know where to find them that'd be helpful too. Thanks again for helpin the NooB'z.
Pro tip: Pre-processing sucks hardcore on the Mac - I wrestled with Shazzy's guide for about a week before I gave up trying to deal with video that had field-switching after EVERY SCENE.
Here's my advice, if you have a Windows machine: IVTC/Deinterlace/Whatever your footage in Windows. Do your filtering there, make it all nice and pretty with AVISynth, make clips, have a ball. Then, make your clips Uncompressed AVI, copy them to your Mac, and either convert them to a lossless editable codec, or just leave'm as-is and edit. Quite frankly, nothing currently available on OSX even holds a candle to the AMVApp - MactheRipper won't let me rip individual chapters, CineTools is a pain in the ass, and don't get me started on MPEGStreamclip and the rest.
Of course, if you don't have a Wintel machine to use, then just read Shazzy's guide from start to finish, accept that you'll only completely deinterlace your video if the Gods smile upon you, and good luck.
