Import your AE clips and then use 'New Sequence from Clip' by right clicking on the clip in the project panel. That ensures your sequence settings match your source material.
HDV is not the correct setting but irrelevant since you are not capturing. AVC-Intra is not likely to be the correct setting either.
Whenever you edit GOP formats, you will lose quality because it needs to be recompressed and definitely when you change resolution, change duration etc. You may be better off with exporting with Lagarith or UT from AE and importing that into PR, because it preserves quality better than H.264, since these codecs are visually lossless.
Thank you Harm,
I can't find the Lagarith and UT codec in my AE..Can I somehow to include it in output formats? Will this lossless codecs increase the output file size?
What would you recomrnt to use instead of AVC-Intra for video captured from screen?
Lagarith and UT can be found by using your best friend, Google.
The size will be much larger, but who cares?
What format does your screen capture program use? Try to avoid conversions as much as possible, since every conversion costs quality.
I need that video to be streamed from the website, so the file size should be really decreased for that, but of course I still want the quality
The screenR (screen capture tool) output is mp4 format, so I'm not sure what I need to use for Sequence preset..

Size is only relevant on final export, not during intermediate steps like going from AE to PR.
Size on final export is determined by duration x bitrate x framerate. Lower size means lower quality. So you have to find a balance between duration, bitrate and framerate to get the quality you need.
Ok, I see,
then I need to begin from the lossless screen capture..
thanks Harm a lot for your answers and patience
