applying 2 different kinds of footage on timeline

Mar 18, 2013 8:44 AM

I have some footage that was recorded in AVCHD and i have some DSLR footage. Most of it is AVCHD...do i need to put them on my time differently every time? I will be using some dynamic link. and i will be exporting in H.264 if that matters.

    No. Just put the clips on the timeline, the rest is handled by PR.

    So what do i make my sequence when i first open PP? Both footage are 24p

    In most cases, I create the sequence from whatever codec makes up a lion's share of my clips. So, I would cancel the New Sequence dialog box, and then drag and drop a representative AVCHD clip on to the New Item icon to create the sequence and move forward from there.

    Make a sequence that accommodates the majority of your footage. Say 70% is AVCHD, then create an AVCHD sequence by right clicking on an AVCHD clip in the project panel and choosing 'Create sequence from clip' and then later drag in the rest of your footage. PR takes care of the rest. That's all.

    back & forth between AVCHD & DSLR footage?

     

    Chances are both are pretty much the same.
