Video from still cameras like this usually needs to be converted --ideally to DV-AVIs -- before it can be used in Premiere Elements, as we discuss in the FAQs to the right of this forum.
If this video is an MPEG, you can convert it with MPEG Streamclip.
If it is an MOV, you can convert it with Super or Quicktime Pro.
Note that your camera does include its own video editing software -- software that's designed to work with this type of video. It may be a good alternative to Premiere Elements, if you'd prefer not to have to convert.
I guess I would like to convert to a HD format if possible since DV format is lower resolution.
If I would convert to a HD format which format should I choose to work best in PreEl?
the camera has resolution 1280 x 720 and 30 frames /sec if that matters.
That can be a bit more challenging, since most converters don't convert to HD -- or at least to an HD format that's compatible with Premiere Elements.
Maybe someone else knows of a product that does.
anyone who knows:
which format is the best for HD in PrEl?
a converter that can convert to HD format good for PrEl from digital Camera HD /MP4 format 1280x720?
What output formats are available from the editing software included with the camera, Jan?
