I'm getting confused with the capture process of high def footage. I'll explain & maybe someone can help.
I shot the footage with a Sony HVR V1 in high def mode.
When I come to capture it in my PC via firewire, in Pinnacle Ultimate I have the following options.
Pal Progressive Widescreen
I'm not sure what I should select in Pinnacle.
In Adobe Premiere CS3 I don't get any option to change anything.
I select Capture - Settings & change Capture Settings to HDV Capture.
Then in Project Settings - General I have the following settings which are all greyed, ie can't be changed.
Editing Mode: DV Pal
Timebase: 25.00 frames/second
Frame Size: 720 horizontal 576 vertical 16:9
And some other stuff.
So as far as I understand 720x576 doesn't equate to high def?
Can someone take a bit of time to explain to me, it would be much appreciated.
