I capture HD video from my Sony HDR-HC9 using the Sony capture utility. The Sony capture utility can divide the capture into datestamp clips, while Premiere Capture just does it as one file (If I am wrong about this please let me know).
I want to know what project preset I should use with these files. I want to edit HD at the best fidelity possible since I want to be able to export to various media types from DV mpg (for my cable access shows), youtube, DVD, and blue ray.
I just bought a Sony VPC-F1190X with Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 installed. So far it works beautifully with the m2t files with the HDV 1080i30(60i) preset or with the ACH-I 100 1080i60.
