I am still far from a pro but I did not want to make a mistake at the start of a new project.
A couple of questions Thanks in advance.
I used a Sony HDR-CX190 to shoot some footage I also used Canon S100 Still camera to shoot in HD in both cases it was recorded onto a SanDisk Extreme SD card which is a Class 10
1) I cannot figure out the sequence settings that I should use Any reccomendations.
2) is there any way that I could use mixed footage from different cameras
Although I was not able to find the recording details for the canon I was able to find the details for the Sony. Below are the details as copied from the Sony website.
Thanks for your help.
I just want to make sure that I set up everything correct so I do not have problems at the end.
Basically I want to create a DVD at the end is there anything that I have to do in the beginning.
1st, about pictures

2nd, about general work flow
I edit AVCHD http://forums.adobe.com/thread/652694 with a few pictures thrown in between video clips... to end up with a DVD... I always edit in the "native" setting for the video, with size changes for a DVD only at the end
Always start your project with a video clip, so the project is correct for the video, and add pictures later... at least until you get used to how to set a project to match what you are going to edit
My PERSONAL choice is to export from PPro as Widescreen DV AVI to then author in Encore, and let Encore do "automatic" transcoding to fit my selected single or dual layer DVD size... so I don't have to get into bit budgets and transcode settings
When I create a DVD from my HiDef source it looks FAR better than the DVD's I used to create from an 8mm tape camera... which I expected, due to the much better source video
