Newbie with HV20: m2t or mpeg capture? I'm shooting HDV 1080 60i.
I'm using Premiere Pro CS3. And I'm new to it.
I've fiddled with the presets. When I capture I get .mpeg files: not .m2t (or .m2ts?) files as many of you. They still look pretty good if your player is color adjusted properly: just like the ones many of you have posted in the HV20 forum.
(A note for all of you who want to optimze your HV20 clip viewing: make sure whatever player you're viewing them on is properly color adjusted. Seems like whether I use VLC or Windows Media Player or Nero, etc. each one looks more or less different.)
Am I losing anything by capturing in .mpeg?
Also all of the different files I've tried to output look like crap. I'm guessing that for some reason they're all being output as DV.
Because I'm new to Premiere Pro CS3 I must have started my project with the wrong presets and they are carrying over giving me the crummy output.
