Convert MPEG to DV AVI type 2 before importing.
The only MPEG format being captured from tape that I know of is HDV, so that may not be the best suggestion, Harm.
Take any SD disk or DVD camcorder. They are all MPEG.
1. So how do I convert MPEG TO DV AVI?
2. Will my content still be HD
3. Is there a file format I can export my movies in to then re edit in adobe premier cs3 with the others?
Your source is obviously HDV from tape. No need to convert that. Capture with either PP CS3 3.20 or HDVSplit. No need to revert to 2.0.
Even if you have 20 tapes of around 10 GB each, that is only 200 GB. If that is a problem, get larger disks or use an external 1 GB eSATA disk so you can move your files from one PC to another.
Hi Harm, thanks for your post full of help,
what would the hdv split do?
Is cs3 3,20 an update I can download?
I will definately look into the hard drives, the problem is I have over 200 movies so it gets a bit messy and using premier pro 2.0 made importing projects impossible.
Does anyone know why some tapes when imported are corrupt?
The update to 3.20 corrects a number of problems with capturing HDV material. It is available for download from the Adobe site. HDVSplit is a freeware utility to capture HDV material, but adds scene detection, which PP still can't handle.
What do you mean by corrupt? Out of synch? That is corrected in 3.20.
