Premiere uses DV-AVI Type II files natively. Everything else must be converted, either inside of Premiere, or with a 3rd party conversion program. Doing so outside of PrP will speed up all aspects of editing and will likely solve any problems, like Audio sync issues.
or P2(mxf), .mov, PSD, jpeg, tiff....natively.
"Best"...well thats debateable/argueable and may depend on what you intend to need as an end result and the resources you have got to achieve it.
Easier to define what is not great to edit with.
I'll give you the still formats, and possibly the P2 (remember, we're talking CS3 here), but .MOV can be so very many things, and many cause problems, that I'm not sure that I'd go there, on this thread. I was *thinking* video, and just did not give consideration to the stills formats. Is P2 cool in CS3? If so, then you "got me," and I'll fold.
Let's see your old poker face...
I included .mov because it was unclear if the OP was on a MAC or a PC.
P2 on CS3 is flawless BTW.
I guess from the formats I listed I can say ...I have no problems editing them so they are "best to work with" for me at least.
Jpg? Maybe it's just my ancient 6.5 version, but jpgs always look fairly bad in it.
