    Default Adobe Premiere 2 importing High Definition HD

    Hello everyone

    Re: Adobe Premiere 2 importing High Definition HD

    I am using Premiere Pro 2 trying to import my HD film footage from my Sony HC3.
    The problem is I get is a slight jagged edge to any motion.

    Is the problem due to the way the film has been imported?

    My capture settings used are:

    Editing Mode HDV 1080i
    Time base 25fps
    Frame size 1440 x 1080

    Capture Format HDV Capture.

    Can anyone advise what Im doing wrong?

    Many thanks

    From your brief description this sounds supsiciously like it's an interlacing issue.

    This has been discussed many times but in short....

    You have likely recorded an interlaced video clip on your camera and imported into your project. no problem there. Yet you are attempting to view it on a NON_interlaced monitor. Hence the jagged edge on movement.

    You can either choose to de-interlace the footage if you are ultimately going to view it on a computer monitor or you can simply leave it and export your final movie as interlaced and build a DVD to watch on your TV where it will look fine - unless you get the field order wrong like I did recently. D'oh!

    Default Thanks Alan

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    My video clip was recorded in 1080i (Sony HDR-HC3E) which I assume is interlaced.

    Cineform Aspect HD
    After further investigation the problem looks very similar to that on the cineform website (but not as bad)
    http://www.cineform.com/products/Son.../CineFrame.htm

    Should I ultimately re-capture my footage using Apsect HD.

    De-interlace the footage.
    How do you de-interlace the footage?

    Export Video
    How does the export feature in Adobe compare with other 3rd parties. What would you recommend?

    I plan to watch my HDVs through a Media Centre PC connected to a LCD TV.

    Many thanks for looking.

    That would indeed be an interlacing issue then. When you export your movie. Be it as a WMV or as An AVI or as MPEG2 (if you are making a DVD) then the export settings will have a de-interlace option. Use that. The export will likely take alittle longer but you'll remove the problem. But, like I saidm don;t bother if you are ultimately going to make a DVD to TV viewing. That already wants an interlaced signal so de-interlacing will make it worse.
