Use any of the sequence presets available that you feel comfortable with.
Actually my question is not about sequence presets, it's about what file formats are most prefereable for import in Premiere.
Depends on his camera.

>his Cannon camera
Which camera, and what are the specifications of the files from that camera?
I have a Canon Vixia HFS100 so use an AVCHD project that matches my video
Other Canon cameras, especially DSLR or other digital still cameras that also do video, use H.264 in a MOV wrapper
My CS5.0.3 works with both the MTS files from my Vixia, and the MOV files I have tested from other Canon models
You should have no problems with video from his camera... screen capture is a different issue
For WMV, I did a forum search for "webinar wmv" (without the " ") and found a few results
Bottom line... WMV is really not good as an edit source... read the 3 links just above for some ideas on how to edit or convert
Also, some other reading about screen capture in general

Thanks John and thanks Harm
Thanks again to everyone
A work around is to re-encode using freemake (rather impressive free program). It seems to do most formats.
