I just want to import the edited self contained QuickTime File.?
So just import them; nothing special needs to be done. Both Windows and Mac will import ProRes QuickTimes.
Does one have to set up the sequence first? Is there no automatic process here where Premier recognizes what it has got and offers to adjust the Sequence accordingly.
Nope, just import the clips. Then, you can drag one of the clips to the New Item button at the bottom of the Project Panel (looks like a dog-eared sheet of paper) and a new sequence will be created that matches the parameters of the footage.
While Premier CS5 does a good job of playing back a 6.5 GB 1 minute file, it does not recognize the resolution automatically and so I find the video looking like 4.3.
What is the procedure here. The file is 1920 x 1080 QuickTime Animation with 48Khz stereo sound.
Any time you have a file that isn't being interpreted correctly, just right-click/Cmd-click on it and select Modify > Interpret Footage. You'll want to look at the Pixel Aspect Ratio section, but there are several properties that you can adjust here, if needed.
Works like a charm and I am able to view everything through my matrox HDMi connection! If I now save this file, and export it, does it get changed or does it retain all its original properties?
That will depend entirely on the export settings you choose.
