hdv 1080p25 is just fine. If you do not know which settings to choose drag a file into the New Item icon.
Don't use Match Sequence Settings it does not work quite correct. Choose a preset or set everything manually.
What is the final destination of your footage?
Thanks for the help.
Final destination of footage will be mixed, sometimes Blu-ray, other times (when less that 25mins) a regular DVD as AVCHD using Encore to build a Blu-ray image and ImgBurn to create the DVD.
Which preset would you suggest for the export? I noticed there are some HDTV ones... would one of these be best and if so which? I think chosing a preset would more than likely mean I would have to tweak something or other and therefor making a custom one. It would be useful to know though if a Preset would work for my needs and that i was getting the best output possible.
Just as a matter for the look of the film. I have heard a lot about the Programme 6 preset on the Sony Z5 and used this along with the 25P setting. I think the footage looks good but doesn't soften much or give the yellowish tint you kinda associate with Film. If anyone has a better experience with the presets within the camera, be good to know.
Thanks again for your help
Blu-ray cannot handle 25p at any resolution. If you wish to shoot at 25 fps, shoot interlaced. If you wish to shoot progressive, shoot 720p/50.
