Project Presets For Editing .mov 720P

Jul 29, 2013 9:01 PM

Hello, I have Drift Inovations 170HD Stealth that I would like to edit in PE11.  The camera specs show that it records 1080P and 720P in .mov (h.264) format.  What would be the best Project Setting for that?

 

Thanks!

DAVE

    I'd recommend that you use the project preset for Flip Mino HD.

     

    Premiere Elements usually sets your project settings automatically, but can have trouble reading the specs on MOV files.

    Dave,

     

    What is your camera set for, NTSC or PAL?

     

    And what are the frame rates involved:

    for 1080p

    for 720p

     

    Your camera seems to be offering

    for 1080p, 25 or 30 frames per second

    for 720p, 25, 30, 50, or 60

     

    Do not depend on the Premiere Elements 11 automatic project preset selection for any format. Always verify with Edit Menu/Project Settings/General Editing Mode, Timebase, Frame Size to see what the program has set after your first video drag to the Timeline. If it agrees with the properties of your source media, fine. But, if not, set the project preset yourself manually before you import the file. (See File Menu/New/Project and "Force Selected Project Setting on this Project".

    Dave,

     

    Premiere Elements 11 uses as its default project preset

    for NTSC, NTSC AVCHD AVCHD HD1080i30

    for PAL, PAL AVCHD AVCHD HD1080i25

     

    You can check that out by going to Edit Menu/Project Settings/General to see what is shown for Editing Mode, Timebase, and Frame Size.

    That default remains until you drag your first video to the Timeline. When you do that, the program is supposed to analyze your video's properties and give you the project preset that is correct for that specific video. Sometimes it does, and sometimes it does not.

     

    If you supply the information requested for video recording frame rates, I will suggest project presets for your editing of your video in Premiere Elements 11.

     

    Thanks.

    Add On..In the good old days prior to Premiere Elements 11, the default project preset was NTSC DV Standard or PAL DV Standard depending on whether you had a NTSC or PAL setup.

    Based on your H.264.mov source....

     

    For the 1080p60

    I would use NTSC AVCHD AVCHD 1080p60

     

    For the 1080p30

    I would use NTSC DSLR 1080p DSLR 1080p30

     

    For 720p30

    I would use NTSC AVCHD AVCHD LITE 720p30

     

    For 720p60

    I would use NTSC AVCHD AVCHD LITE 720p60

     

    Important issue in setting the project preset and seeking match with video properties is having the program establish the correct space in the edit mode monitor for editing purposes.

     

    Please review and do not hesitate to ask for clarification on anything that I write.

     

    Thanks.

    Definitely, have a check mark next to Force Selected Project Setting on this Project" before you exit the new project dialog after you change the project preset.

     

    Only then import your video into the project with Add Media.

     

    Looking forward to your results.

     

    Thank you.

    Dave,

     

    Here is something to start you with for your exports...wth regard to your 1080p60

     

    Publish+Share

    Computer

    AVCHD

    Presets = MP4 - H.264 1920 x 1080p30

     

    Then click on the Advanced Button for this preset and customized the settings as shown in a partial view of the Export Settings dialog.

    After a first look, you can adjust BItrate Settings if needed.

     

    We can go into more export settings for the other file formats when you are ready.

     

    Looking forward to your results. Sounding good.

     

    Thanks.

    Dave,

     

    That was very good news.

     

    For the 720p25, 720p30, and 720p60, I would look at:

     

    For 720p60

    Publish+Share

    Computer

    AVCHD

    with Presets = MP4 - HD 720p60

    (Refer to details in screenshot below)

     

    For 720p30

    Publish+Share

    Computer

    AVCHD

    with Presets = MP4 - HD 720p60

    (but in this case, you are going to go under the Advanced Button/Video Tab and change the frame rate from 60 to 30.

    Refer to details in screenshot below)

     

    For 720p25

    Publish_Share

    Computer

    AVCHD

    with Presets = MP4 - HD 720p60

    (but in this case, you are going to go under the Advanced Button/Video Tab and change the frame rate from 60 to 25.

    Refer to details in screenshot below)

     

    720p60

    720p60.JPG

    720p30

     

    720p30.JPG

     

    720p25

     

    720p25.JPG

     

    The choice of 59.94 vs 60 and 29.97 vs 30 often depends of details from your camera. But see how you do with the suggested settings.

     

    Thanks.
