    There really is none for video recorded with a DVR. In fact, this is probably not the best program for that sort of work.

     

    This is probably a better choice:

    If the files are on a DVD, you should use the project settings for Hard Disk Camcorder, Standard Definition. Then you should put the DVD in your computer's disk drive and use Premiere Elements Get Media tool to rip the files to your computer.

    What I do with mine is to connect its component output to my Canopus ADVC300 analog/digital converter and capture into my PC with WinDV or DV Capture Live (both free).

     

    Then I import the media to a project with DV Standard settings.

    When working from DVD-Videos, this ARTICLE might be helpful - All VOB's (the container for the MPEG-2 files in a DVD-Video) are not created equally.

     

    Most DVR's write a VOB 01, that is not up to the DVD-specs. That can create a problem for PrE (and also PrPro), and if you have issues, please do follow Neale's advice.

     

    Good luck and welcome to the forum.
