Greetings to all,
My apologies if I'm posting this question in the wrong section. I'm still using Premiere CS4 but I'm doing all the homework before upgrading. I'm acquiring a Panasonic camera that uses AVCHD format. I will be using 1080p @ 30fps. I will also be shooting with a Canon DSLR 7D which record at 1080p 30fps but delivers on H.264 in Quicktime files.
When I'm going to start a new project, what format should I use for the project? The preformats for DSLR or for AVCHD?
I would choose a presets for the footage you have the most of.
Ì think you will have no trouble mixing.
My CS5 is on order so I don't know details... but I've read here about a "new item" button (or some name similar to that) in CS5, where you just drag a file out of the bin and drop it on the button, and a new sequence is created with all the correct settings
