    Hi Robert,

    I’m shooting in HDV, with Premiere Pro CS4.

    I wanted to have the very best format since I am working on a project/documentary which will be sold in stores.

    What do you recommand ?

    Hi Earl,

    If I may ask, what would be your process to downconvert from HD to SD ?

    Is there a software dedicated to something like that ? BTW, I use PPro CS4.

    Thank’s for your knowledgeable input!

    Thank you very much Ken!

    Is there any difference between PCI & PCI Express ?

    Yes, you are right, I’m gearing up for hi-def. I recently did a documentary shot with my very good (but not HD) camcorder (Panasonix PV-GS300) which I simply love, but once I saw the result on my HD TV, I wanted to throw it away! I’ll let few months go by to see the prices going down on HD Camcorder.

    Yes, I was thinking about buying a video card with 512MB on it. With my luck, the very next day I’ll buy it, there’s gonna be a 1G Video card on the market! πŸ™‚

    So basically, you mean that you must have Premiere (or any other NLE) on one drive and your project and data on a different drive ? Does that make such a big diff in rendering/saving/working with the project timewise ?

    Thnak you for any advice, young man!

    Hi MSmart!

    I downloaded a copy of it. Looks like a freeware which can do a lot!

    But the thing is that my original file is about 500Megs. When I convert in MPEG-II it comes donw to a 5 or 7Megs file and the output is very compressed… Where in the program can I tell it to only convert, do not compress anything since I want the best quality for my new file… ?

    Thnak’s for your help! (I keep trying different settings)

    Absolute Video Converter

    IMTOO video converter

    Total Video Player

    Total Video Converter

    Some of them have the options to keep the same ration, or not resize, but it doesn’t work…

    Thank you gentlemen!

    My camcorder (Panasonic PV-GS300) DOES record in widescreen mode as well!

    So, that makes things easier, eh ?

    Thank’s again for your inputs!

    Hi!

    The title says it all πŸ™‚

    Can the sound functions of Premiere Pro 2 simulate this or I’d need an external sound software like Audacity and/or Goldwave ?

    Thank you in advance! πŸ™‚

    Hi Compusolver!

    >you can use the motion feature of the video effects window to rock the >image this way and that

    Yes, I’m using Premire Pro 2.0 but I might be lost, but I didn’t find that in the effect window.

    Can you be more precise ?

    Thank you!
