I have been looking for a good workflow to get my HD footage on blu-ray.
I found a lot of good articles but could not find one that matches my needs.
This is my hardware:
Basically what I am looking for is an easy way/workflow to get my hd footage from tape to hd blu-ray format and a good/fluid way to edit in premiere pro cs4 on my new PC.
I read that MT2 is hard to work with in Adobe Premiere. So far I have not been complaining with my old system but is there a better way (converting to other format/codec) keeping in mind that my output would be hd blu-ray.
Also what settings do you recommend in CS4 and how to export(encore... which codecs/settings/... )
What dual Xeon's are you using on what mobo? Get rid of ffdshow. Capture with HDVsplit, edit in PR, export to H.264-BR or MPEG2-BR. That's all.
BTW: In Belgium you are 50i by default, not 60i.
So no ffdshow... really? That makes it real simple yes... a lot of sites where I read about hdvsplit recommended to use ffdshow.
And yes you are right it is 50i not 60i... I downloaded the manual from the us website.
You also do not recommend to convert for editing.... sounds to simple... I will try and see for the results. Thanks.
