I've shot a whole web series on HQ 1080/50i so we have the best of both worlds for a 720p web download and DVD export. (Your thoughts?)
Anyway, now I just want to optimize these 101 videos for the web in the most efficient way possible.
They only need a trim, a cross dissolve and possibly some will want a colour grade.
Any ideas would be better than what I am currently doing-
Premiere CS3 -one clip at a time! 3 hour render per 1080i video, then export to web format(!!)
What can batch process/make my life easier?
I have a reasonably capable old edit suite, don't mind trialing a new NLE package if neccessary (Is Edius much better for these tasks?)
(System: AMD 4400+ x2, I'm able to playback 1080p in Premiere's timeline with no drops if I set it up right)
The videos are between 1 minute and 4 minutes long.
Thanks very much,
