I've only fairly recently entered into the world of Premiere Pro video editing and as you'd expect I have a query (or two...)
I have been editing footage taken on a Panasonic mini DV cam (NV GS120) via Adobe PPro; kind of getting to grips with the basics (trimming/audio adding/effects etc) but there's obviously a great deal more to this programme (de-interlacing??? - should I worry about this at the current stage?)
My current issue is with exporting the footage I have edited together in the timeline as a viewable file (say as a .movs file or .avi).
I have 5 minute chunks of footage (for a client) but this is taking 4 hours! to export/render across...is this normal? I'd hate to think how long it takes to export a short film in this manner! My PC is relatively fast (1.2ghz) and was built less than a year ago...or is it purely down to the fact dv footage takes up a massive amount of resources/space?
The other query (I'm sure there will be more however ) is that the sequence clips seem to be saving themselves as files (i.e. 5/6 second clips taking up 9mb 'ish') - doesn't this mean that the moive is being saved twice? Once for the export (999mb for 5 mins footage for example) then the same again for the individual sequences??
Really hope somebody can shed light on this!
