Seeking advice on how to smoothly and *losslessly* import/ingest iphone4 footage into PPro CS5.
You import it... that's it. Premiere will (or should) work with the file natively, so no need to do anything out of the ordinary.
To create a sequence for it, just drag one of the clips to the New Item button at the bottom of the Project Panel; a new sequence will be created that matches the footage. Edit away...
Wow. Thanks Colin.
When I follow your approach, I don't get the same "sequence preset" dialog box popping up.
FU question, though, the motion is frequently jagged. Is there a way to smooth out/increase the quality of the rendering? I have 16gb ram, Mac Pro. which is able to handle iPhone video rending fine in quicktime. (I've tried rendering for "performance" and "memory" but both seem to produce, eh results.).

Make sure your Playback Resolution is set to "Full" and not "1/2." To do this, click the Output button in the Program Monitor (looks like a Venn diagram with three overlapping circles). That usually smooths out playback on footage like this.
great. exactly what I needed - motion is now smooth. (now PPro is right there in quality with iMovie 11!).

Yeah... I know what you mean...
My question is more basic.
I plugged in my phone, How do I import into premier?
Thanks for this insight about playback setting. When I first imported, all my footage was getting this blocky stuff happening. But now with playback at Full, all systems go.
And I am using iPhone 5 video.
