    Convert SD Material to DV-AVI First? A Little Story

    the_wine_snob Level 9

      I just posted this to the PrPro forum. It outlines my experiences using PrPro on a Project made up of WMV Assets. It did not go well, so I repeated the Project with converted files instead with much better results. Though the editing was done in PrPro, there are strong parallels with PrE.

       

      Many encounter problems, when using Assets that are NOT DV-AVI. While my story revolves around WMV's, one could fill in many other compressed formats/CODEC's, and the results would likely be very similar.

       

      I knew better, but broke some of my own rules, with bad results.

       

      Hope that this helps someone, who is looking at SD material, that is not in DV-AVI format. External conversion will pay dividends in the long run, and frustrations will be reduced.
