Are you on a Mac?
What is the date and version referenced in your Classroom in a book? Sounds like it is refering to version Premiere 2.0.
DV is dv.
HDV is HDV ( a mpeg2 based format)
mov is a container. It can use many types of codecs.
What camera are you capturing from? That will determine what project type you should choose.
I am on a Mac . The book is for CS4, bran new. The option in question is in the CS4 version of Premier Pro under capture/format my options are HDV or QuickTime not HDV or DV as stated in the book. When and why would I choose QuickTime for a capture format? I guess if I were importing some files in QT formats but then what do I do when I want to import DV? Is the QT option replacing DV a recent change?
Its one of the few differences in the sw between platforms. Though MAC can play an avi wrapper, it prefers quicktime.
In Pr; HDV is a different capture mode than DV. For example some cams can play back booth DV and HDV; so you have ot tell Pr which capture mode to be in .
I hope the philosophy here is that there is no such thing as a dumb question.
My sister once called me on my home phone (a land line) and when I picked up she asked "Hey, are you home?"
I thought that was a pretty dumb question.
There is no such thing as a dumb question, only dumb answers.
Different people's brains work differently. I am convinced that right
brain/left brain only scratches the surface. What is patently obvious
to one is shrouded in mystery to another.
(And then there's the issue of *my *brain. I've killed so many of its
cells over my 33+ years of adulthood that nothing is obvious anymore.)
People also make mistakes. And I mean everybody.
Five correct answers. Well said, thank you. Now how do I mark all as being correct?
