Full HD video and MEP 2013 Premium

Greetings (Windows 7 64-bit, Intel i-7 2600K CPU @ 3.40 Ghz 8 Core, 16Gb DIMM memory)

I've used most generations of MEP (I'm currently on 2013 premium) and have got to know the software's quirks and foibles but now I've hit a snag.

My beloved DV video camera has finally given up the ghost, and I've invested in a more up to date model that records up to Full HD in .mov format with H.264 video and sowt: 16-bit signed little-endian audio.

These import into MEP 2013 and play without problem BUT when I record a fullHD clip @ 1920x1080 59.94 fps MEP will insist on telling me that the file is 29.97 fps - this happens even when I tell MEP the file is 59.94fps. I can export a file to 59.97fps, I can import a file (modified by Avidemux or Virtualdub or MPEGStreamclip) and MEP recognises the true fps of 59.94 but I don't want to re-encode my files before I process them - it defeats the whole object.

Strangely,  when i import a video from the camera into Avidemux and scroll forward frame by frame, every other frame is black so I assume this fact and MEP only recognising 29.97 fps for the video are linked.

This is my first foray into HD and I know very little about the .mov format - Googling gives some answers but  I'm really still none the wiser.

If anyone can enlighten me as whether there is any way to get MEP to recognise my 59.94fps files I would be most grateful.

Two questions for you:

Do you need 60fps or you video contains fast motion to need extra fps?

Do you think that a Pentium III with 16 gig memory can handle a video file like full HD 60fps?

I hope to see the users on this forum sharing experience with full HD 60fps, Magix has special function to work.

Regards,

Thanks for the reply. To answer your questions

1) Do I need 60fps. Probably not - certainly not on an everyday basis, but the camera can take it, and I want MEP2013 to process it. If it can't then .... However, I'm perfectly willing to give MEP2013 a fair chance.

2) The Processor Pentium PIII I wrote from memory, but after checking the ACTUAL processor it's an "Intel i-7 2600K CPU @ 3.40 Ghz 8 Core"; I've modified my original post - apologies for misleading you. Yes, I do think this and 16gb of RAM can handle FullHD @60fps. - It has done when I've been experimenting to try to come up with an answer. as mention in my first post:-

" I can import a file (modified by Avidemux or Virtualdub or MPEGStreamclip) and MEP recognises the true fps of 59.94 but I don't want to re-encode my files before I process them - it defeats the whole object."

Look forward to getting this sorted - one way or another.
