      I’m shooting a short year-end program for a preschool that I’ll edit in Premiere Pro and burn to DVD for parents. My camcorder is a Sony HDR-CX900. My format options appear to be “Standard Quality” and “High Quality” AVCHD. My frame options are 60i, 60p and 24p.

      These may seem like dumb questions, but:

      1. Will Premiere Pro handle AVCHD ok? I’ve only ever used camcorders that save in mp4.
      2. I’m new to this 60p/i thing. I’ve only ever worked with 30. If my final product is DVD, which frame rate should I shoot in? Will it downconvert?

      According to the specs on B&H’s website, that camera offers 30p as well. https://bhpho.to/2o47NBG DVDs are viewed on television sets so shoot at 30p.

      Premiere (after version 5.0) can handle AVCHD. If you use Adobe Encore for DVD authoring and creation, it will output the DVD standard.
