Try it and you know it.
You can put multiple sources with different formats in a single sequence.
Okay thanks, I'm not too familiar with Premiere yet so I'll try it and see what happens. What I was thinking was that if I'm on the DSLR setting I might not get as good a playback or does it just not matter anymore with CS5?
I have been testing in an AVCHD 1920i 29.97 sequence with AVCHD1920i 29.97 and 1920P 60, XDCAM-EX 1920i 25, HDV 1440i 25 and DV PAL intermixed in the same time line without any problems. BTW GoPro is recognized as AVCHD in CS5.
GoPro is mp4, so that would be a XDCAM EX preset.
CS5 is not interpreting it right.
That is not really relevant, as long as it plays and can be edited and exported. That is what matters.
Keep in mind that all these wrappers can contain a multitude of formats internally.
Secondly, Karl was talking about the Flip, not the GoPro.
This is but an observation, but Go-Pro must have had a big marketing push lately, as this is about the 8th Go-Pro thread one either PrPro, or PrE fora, within the month of May. Seems to be a very popular choice nowadays. Before now, I can only recall perhaps 2 other threads on those cameras. Maybe I should have bought stock!
Good luck, and please report how well it all works for you,
If it is not relevant a XDCAM EX preset will do just fine, it plays the file natively.
GoPro is the same format as the Flip and many more.
Okay thanks for all the info. I have just been using the HDV setting and it has been working fine with my pics @ 15fps and my 720p @30. I haven't even used the gopro at 1080p but i will try later.
I know that the GoPro is H.264 and mp4, no idea what the flip thing is.
Yeah the Gopro has taken off. Don't know if you have seen the footage you get from it but its pretty good. At a first glance of the camera you might just disregard it but once you've seen the results they sell them self. I think just form showing people the video results they all want one.
I've had mine for 4 Months now but until I got CS5 it has been a pain to edit and have just been using iMovie which is fine but limited when you want to use AE and PrPro. I had to convert each file to Apple pro res and a 200MB file went to 2GB. CS5 is a big improvement just for that reason.
should of bought stock too. You can almost double the price of them if you sell them in OZ or NZ. I bought mine in OZ so i had to pay extra....
