I can't speak from experience on this one, Tony. I've never even heard of a progressive scan 480 video!
But I do know that Premiere Elements is limited to use with a dozen or so standard video frames rates and frame sizes. I can't imagine that it could export 480p back to tape, since the program itself is going to convert the video to interlaced frames in order to work with it.
So I'll be interested to hear your results!
Thanks for responding. I was thinking in terms of a camcorder like the Panasonic miniDV AG DVX100 and some other camcorders from Panasonic that shoot 480p24. I ran across this online and got curious about the topic and wanted to learn more.
A Steve Mullen article on "Progressive: What You Need to Know" got me started in this direction, and I wondered just how far, if at all, you could drag the Premiere Elements' Export to Tape into this. I am a "dedicated" Premiere Elements person who will probably never defect to Premiere Pro which I suspect would be the better choice of programs for 24p.
Thanks for that link. It was extremely interesting and informative.
Since it seems to start with 480i30, followed by conversion to 480p24, for now it gets around my need to get one of those Panasonic camcorder's to start with 24p or 24p Advanced to explore the 480p24 look.
I am still curious about the very remote possible use of Premiere Elements Export to Tape as I "dreamed", but that is for another time and the odds are against it.
