    FHD video

    deb1992 Level 1

      Does Premiere Pro CS4 handle FHD video?  We have a Casio EX-F1 and wanted to know what import settings we should use to maintain the highest quality possible.

          No, either convert to editable format or use a consumer software package. This is a still camera, not a video camera. Maybe Casio has some software to edit that stuff.

            I had a chance to test FHD video this morning from the Casio camera and was able to import it into PPro CS4 without any problem, using my regular project settings.

              What were your regular project settings?

                We just used the normal HDV 1080i30 (60i) settings.

                  That is astonishing, since the camera uses it's own compression scheme, with a data flow of between 8-12 Mb/s and HDV is 25 Mb/s.

                    Hello, I also have a ex-f1 and just found out the movies aren't displayed properly in adobe premiere. The movies are jerky or are not played continuesly, what settings should I use? (I've tried the settings discussed above) or what software should I use for edditing these movies?  Thanks in advance.

                      Welcome to the forum.

                       

                      Does the Casio ship with any software, or utilities? If so, that would be the first place that I would look.

                       

                      Since the OP indicated that they were able to Import and edit, it is possible that they installed a necessary CODEC, and that might be all that you will need to do, as well. With some cameras, the mfgrs. ship the proprietary CODEC in either a utility, as an individual install, with a driver, or perhaps installed with an editing/file handling utility. If you have a disc, look closely at it. Install any driver, and any utilities/editing programs.

                       

                      For some background on CODEC's, see this ARTICLE.

                       

                      Good luck,

                        Thanks for the tip. I have read the info about the CODEC's I didn't realize video editing can be so complicated. I've always used imovie and other easy-to-use movie editing programs with only one HD camera. I'm now using a borrowing the ex-f1 camera, so I have to ask for extra Casio software. Hopefully I will find something. Thanks again.
