    Default Rendering Formats

    Not really a problem but more of a question to everyone.
    I've been experimenting with different formats whilst rendering from After Effects CS3 & Premiere Pro CS3 but have decided on a favourite format yet. What do you all export to?
    I'm primarily shooting in true 16:9 widescreen format on a Sony PDX-10 and capturing in .avi with Premiere Pro CS3.
    I've heard a lot of good about Quicktime but never actually used it myself as a format.

    Thanks!

    I think you meant to say in your post you haven't decided on a favourite format yet? It all depends on what you want to do with the video after you've finished editing it. Do you want to play it back on the computer, burn it to dvd, stick it on Youtube. Each one will benefit from a particular file format to either make the filesize smaller or keep the quality as high as possible. So you can possibly end up with 3 or 4 favourites and not just one.

    Hey Nikosony...yes sorry about that =] I guess that I'm looking mainly for a high quality format used to store the videos on my PC / Mac. I guess that I just use .mpg2 for DVD burning as that is what Encore is set to default as.
    Thanks!

    my personal opinion is that as long as u're using adobe, u should stick to .avi
    if later u shift to avid, then u should start thinking about .mov (quicktime)
