Basis of the setup is you match the Project Settings to the Settings that you shot
with your camera.
(Let us know what the camera settings are and someone will advise on the next step)
Tell us about your external drive . If its connected as ESATA you will be fine. If USB or firewire...probably not.
Setting up PPRO is about a lot of other stuff as well.
Supply full details about your hardware and system.
24F is actually wrapped in 30i, so use HDV 1080i30
I have a gateway E4100 with windows XP not much storage 100gb, my external hard drive is a Iomega Prestige 1 TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive, is where I was hoping to store my video files.
Sounds like I am going to need to upgrade my internal hard drive? Any recommmendations?
Minimum is two internal SATA 7200 disks, recommended is at least 3 SATA internals and USB externals are fine for archiving.
I would relegate the USB 2.0 external to archiving media files ONLY. First, the connection is much too slow to edit to/from, and many have had major issues with Read/Write errors, especially Delayed Write Failures.
I use many FW-800's, and they work well for my SD Projects. If I were not so heavily invested in the FW-800's, I'd definitely go to eSATA externals, and will be including those on my new workstation, along with FW-800 for my legacy externals.
Good luck, and I second Harm's suggestion of an absolute minimum of 2x SATA's, with 3x being even better.
So let me please make sure I understand this correctly.
I can use this
Western Digital My DVR Expander 1 TB eSATA Desktop External Hard Drive
hard drive with a esata cable and I can put my clips on here and edit from it? With my software on my internal hard drive.
Thnaks for all your help.
That should not be a problem.
Thank you very much for all your help.
