    how should I set up a project for .mpg files?

    stbgreat

      I recently got a panasonic waterproof video camera. when all is said and done, I end up with .mpg files. I brought them into premiere pro CS4 and started up a project using the avchd 720p 30fps preset. I used this preset, because it was my best guess, but when I play a clip in the timeline it shows up as a smaller picture than the monitor frame. after that I click on the preview and resize it to fit the monitor. then I bring the sequence into another project which is avchd 1080i 60 and again I have to resize the video. surely there is a better way!

       

      by the way, the original clip shows up as 704 x480.

       

      all advice is more than welcome. I'm sure I'm doing this absolutely wrong.
