Hi Nina.! ,; ?) Really don't think your G4 Mac's matter any
as the real answer lays with QT(quicktime®) which allows play
of a maximum of 30fps(frames per sec). That's the whole bit.!
No - the answer lays in "how many fps the original AVI"was made with.
But first you must understand that an AVI is only a .MOV that
has "digital wrapper" around it - it's still just a regular MOV file.
That means the original AVI(MOV) must include all the appropriate
frames and NOT just the 50%(or half) that apearently this AVI has.
You must do "direct digital transfer"-and not "digitized/captured"
as that automatically limits 'fps' to 30 per sec - resulting *lost footage*.
The one way to possibly "digitized/capture" that WOULD work
would be to *capture* your footage in slo-mo(50%speed-1/2 speed).
That way you might get very near all the frames - tho still doubtful.
So the absolute right way is "direct digital transfer" allowing you
to render all the 60fps in your 30fps MOV -which gives you slo-motion.
Anyone can manage this - it's just the basic fundementals
to constructing a typical QT .MOV (or AVI) depends on whether
you've ever read about Quitcktime and how it basically works.
There is all sorts of free software to do the job - Strata VideoShop
was a freebee in version 3.0 compliments of Strata®.
Hope this info helps you out ; )
