I recently bought a Sony DSC-T500 camera which can shoot 720P MPEG4 AVC/H.264. This week I purchased the Premier Elements 7 in hopes to edit video. My question concerns the very first screen that shows up when you open a new project. I'm unsure what my selection must be reagrding the video that will be imported. Under AVCHD everything is 1080i. Under HDV there is a selection for 720p. I'm confused as to the "AVC/H.264" listed on the camera. It seems like it should be opened under the AVCHD but there is no option for the 720! Can someone please assist? Thanks!
I would use the HDV 720p project preset. AVCHD is not edited natively by PE7 anyway and so it is probably better to match the frame size of the video and the progressive.
