    Default I need help with import/export settings

    I have a question about import and export in Premiere Pro CS5.
    I have some 1920*1080 .mov-files shot with canon eos 500d.
    What is the best import setting for premiere pro cs5?
    What is the best export setting from premiere pro (to adobe encore) to dvd?
    The film is going to be projected on to a big screen. How do I get the best quality for this?
    I would very much appreciate your help!

    Hi tamvibberstoft, it appears that your camera takes 1920x1080 video, but only at 20fps. This is non-standard, so merely import the files and drop the first one onto the "New Item" button at the bottom of the project panel and a new sequence will be created. This way, you don't have to worry about getting the settings perfectly correct before importing, it will be done automatically. Next time, you should shoot 720p as the video will then be standard at 30fps.

    After you finish editing, go to File > Export > Media and choose the preset for DVD here (it's actually Adobe Media Encoder). It should be 720x480 and make sure you select the widescreen option for DVD.

    If you are going to project the DVD, it may not be of the highest quality as its frame size is around 1/6 the size of your original HD. A better option would be to create a Blu-ray Disc or create a H.264 file and play it directly off your computer to the projector.
