Is there a good preset that will handle Iphone 4/4s/5 video footage (720P on the 4 and 1080P on the 4S/5), and My GoPro HD Hero2? I typically record on the GoPro in 1080 30FPs, or 720P 60FPS. I generally produce videos with both types of footage.
What about exporting the footage? I prefer max quality. I store files on PC, and typically upload to youtube ( I have no restrictions to length or size on YT)
Using Adobe Premiere Elements 10 W7 64bit, 8GB RAM, I7, NVS4200M, etc.

Steve's Basic Training Tutorials... steps are the same for several versions
I guess I should have worded my question differently. I've never had an issue importing any of my iphone 4/4s/5 videos into PE10. The same with my GPro videos. I was just curious as to what kind of quality I was loosing by mixing these two file types in PE10, then exporting them AVCHD MP4 1080P 30fps H264.
There will certainly be some loss of "quality", since you're going from one format to another as well as going from 1280x720 to 1920x1080 -- but only you can decide if it's an acceptable level.
There is no one-size-fits-all output for AVCHD. There are dozens of possible levels of MP4, each optimized to a specific purpose. How do you plan to use the file you've output -- as a source for a DVD or BluRAy? Online to YouTube or Vimeo or your own personal web site? In another high-def or stand def video project? On a portable device like an iPad or mobile phone? We really can't recommend an output without knowing where you plan to use it.
That FAQ seems to try to infer that MP4 uploads to youtube are not preferred? And that I should double duty on my movies (render them in PE10, then again in WMM) My standard output process seems to match and or better what's referred to in that FAQ, so I will leave well enough alone.
I store them all on my PC for playback, and then they go to youtube.
Thanks for your input

I don't know what you saw, 57x28. But John Cloudman's recommended specson that FAQ produce an MP4 for upload to YouTube and in no way involves Windows MovieMaker.
Ohh I mistook the second recommendation as a continuation of the first suggestion :|
