hello all. Im from croatia and this is my first post here so hello to everyone.)
I have a footage that has been filmed recently with Panasonic P2 HDV camera. It has been edited and all at it is meant to be sent to a range of foreign film festivals. It is the croatian film so i have to put the english subtitles in. What I want to do is this: it si original 16:9 footage but i want to export it so it has black line on top an bottom for more film-like effect. So, I would have to export it in uncompressed avi format so i dont lose quality, and then import it back into premiere so i can write subtitles on the bottom black line. So, I am asking all you pro´s is that the right thing to do or will I lose the quality by doing that? Is there an easier way to do so since there are only 5 dialogue sentences in the film?
question no.2: what is the best premiere plugin where there are different film looks so i can decide how do i want it to look before sending it to color correction?
