This is my first question to any forum.
I have captured my first 6 home videos using Premiere Pro 1.5 and am just testing what is the best encoding settings to use before I capture my other 50 odd tapes.
I have captured them as PAL 720x576 at 25fps,48000HZ 16 bit stereo.
The videos combined is 1hr 30min long.
I read everywhere that it is better to choose 2 pass so I chose the following.
PAL DV 4x3 High Quality 4mb VBR 2 Pass.
I let it run for about 6hrs and it showed that it had only completed a third of the encoding. Am I doing something wrong?
Should I use a different setting. I saw a similar on
e with Progressive Scan.
Would that be better.
Am I just waffling on too much.....
Any assistance would be muchly appreciated so I can actually start editing some footage.
I am running Windows XP Pro on a Toshiba laptop.
Intel Pentium 4-M CPU 2.20GHz with 512mb RAM.
Intel 82852/82855 GM/GME Graphics Controller.
