Thread: Mini-DV format settings.

  1. #1

    Smile Mini-DV format settings.

    Hello,
    it is my first message in this place.

    I have 5-6 20 minutes "films" in my experience baggage.

    I'm planning to dedicate more efforts in this direction and learn how to edit video on Pro, Semi-Pro editing programs, like Premiere for example.

    I have encountered one problem from the beginning.

    The problem is unclear(at least for me) specification of my camcorder.
    Premiere 1.5 demands from me to set frame rate(==recording format) for my video project from the start.
    I don't know what frame rate my camcorder use. I have Panasonic NV-GS25 Mini-DV.
    Specification says:
    "Recording format: Mini DV(Consumer-use digital video SD format)"
    1)What does it mean? What exact parameters of this format?
    And what settings in Premiere will satisfy this format?

    2)Premiere has a lot of settings for D1 and DV formats, but no settings for Mini-DV.
    How can I customize project settings.

    Thanks a lot for those who may help me.

    Use the PAL DV settings.
    That's 720x576 frame size, 25 fps, AVI type 1.

    It's best to keep all your work as DV AVI. You can use an open-source tool such as TMPGEnc to convert the final product into MPEG-2 for DVD authoring, or you can use the Adobe solution: Encore DVD to make the whole thing.
    Cheers!
