I have some mp4 footage that I need to edit. (Yes, I know it's less than ideal editing quality, but I'm using the footage -- btw it's for the web)
When I import it into Premiere it is not the usual avi size image. It's 320 x 240, so I have to transform it larger to fit the full screen: 720 x 480.
The output will be mp4 or flv and it will be downsized back to 320 x 240 for output (as I said, it's for the web).
Rather than having to transform the footage, and then downsize it once I get it ready for the web, is there a better way to import it into Premiere? So I won't have to go through the transforming (making it larger).
In other words is there a Mp4 preset that is already 320 x 240?
My phone (nokia n93) produces mp4s and PP2 would not import (unsupported format) Just tried with CS3 and it imports clips but as audio only. Elements supports mp4 - although if i want to use footage from the phone I convert to DV first - which fortunately is quite rare.
Looks like you are getting your mp4 into CS3 OK? Whats the source? Guess it's a codec thing. Try a new custom project with matching dimensions in CS3 to avoid the scaling up and down.
