i just got a new Camcorder (Sony HDR-CX 155) that shoots images in 1080p quality. I'm new to the CS 5 (but i've used CS3 a while ago) and I don't know what settings to set up when opening a new project. I want to cut a video in 1080p without losing any quality from importing or rendering.
Anyone out there who can help me with the Presets?
Don't worry about presets. It doesn't matter. When you want to create a sequence drag one of your source files to the new sequence button and it will create a sequence that matches the footage, rather than you trying to figure it out.
When you create a new project you are presented
with a menu of sequence settings to choose from.
You can skip this step by hitting "Cancel", then import your media
and create the type of sequence that best suits your footage.
This 'drag and drop' shortcut is just that... a shortcut.
It does not always work perfectly in all circumstances.
And to best understand what is happening, watch this:
