Okay, I found out in my previous post that my SONY M15U HDV deck doesn't play nice with Premiere CS5 on account of Premiere not being able to capture via FW 800 and my Mac Pro only having FW 800 ports.
Therefore, since Final Cut Pro can import via FW 800 I am forced to import with FCP and then drop it into Premiere. (Yes, I am saving up for an AJA card, but until then, this is my lot).
My question is then, am I alright capturing into Pro Res with FCP and then using that in Premiere or am I better off using a different codec? Thanks much!
ProRes is fine. Do a short test, obviously, before you capture hours of footage.
