I am working on a 90-120 minute video that is comprised of a couple of different projects. To combine the projects I would like to render each project then use the rendered video to compile the larger project.
The source video comes from a Canon HF20, Full HD 1920X1080 30P.
Which preset should I use on the smaller projects to render out each of those that will allow for the best quality / editability ?
There will be some editing in the final project, but it will mostly just be transitions, titles etc.
The utlimate target is BD and HD streaming.
Forgot to mention, this is PRE 8.
You'll want to create a project that uses the AVCHD 1920x1080i settings, of course, to gather your raw video.
But, if you'd like to export them to a hi-def format that's ultimately easier to edit, use Share/Computer/MPEG using the 1440x1080 preset. This will produce a file that will edit natively in a project using the HDV project preset.
