If there is no ready made preset, you create your own via Desktop (New Sequence/General/Editing Mode).
That is very weird. PAL is 50i, not 60i which is NTSC. Also I don't believe this Sanyo camera is truly progressive, let alone at 60p. Better check the manual of the camera.
I own one of these cameras myself, and it does shoot 1080p. It shoots in two 1080p modes, 60 fields per second, and 60 frames per second.
I only just discovered though that the 60fps shooting mode requires write speed capabilities of 24 Mb/sec... regular Class6 SDHC cards will fall over with these demands.... SanDisk Extreme III to the rescue!
Haven't tried anything i've shot at this res yet, so I'm afraid I can't enlighten the original poster on that front. I would think opening a standard 1080p file, then setting the playback speed of the clip to 50% should reveal the recorded slow-motion in all its glory.
It shoots in two 1080p modes, 60 fields per second, and 60 frames per second.
That is why I dislike the 60i designation. Only frames should ever be listed, not fields. The correct way to write it is 30i and 60p. I really wish camera makers would stop this "60i" nonsense. It only causes confusion.
I have the same problem with HD1000 and 720p. And I have some workaround
I import twice the same video. 1x I change interpret footage on 59.94 from 29.97. The sound is a twice quicker then normal and it doesn't mather for this time, coz i import only video track. After that i take audio from video with original footage and put it together (to audio track).
Everything works only with CS4.1 and instaled MainConcept™ MPEG Pro™ HD 4.0.1
