    New to Premiere Pro CS5.5


      Hello all,

      Recently moved up to CS5.5 from PE8 and hoping for some advise before starting my main project.

      Project will be approx 1hr long, wish to be able to burn finished product to DVD as well as Blu Ray. Most footage has been shot so far with Sony HDR-CX handycams, AVCHD set on FH,( should i be using FX?). Also have some footage shot with a standard DV camera and would like to use both in project?

      Am i able to create project with 5.1 SS and still use footage with 2 channel stereo also?

      Have been playing around a bit editing with some success, until it comes to burning to DVD, suspect i have a setting wrong, starting out tutorials watched seem to say don't bother setting up the project settings at start?

      My main questions to date are - should i set the required settings at the start of my project? and if so what settings should i choose for desired end products?  Also what settings should i choose when saving to hard drive for burning to DVD and then BR discs?

      Thanks in advance for any help.
