Chapter 2. Starting a Project > Custom Project Settings

Custom Project Settings

One could argue that the greatest advantage of the DV format is not its high quality or affordability, but its ease of use. DV is digitized in the camera, it can be transferred to a hard drive over a single cable, it contains timecode, and it uses a consistent standard. For these reasons, DV users don’t usually customize their project settings, they simply choose the appropriate DV preset and move on. (They can also skip this section.)

Unlike DV, which uses a relatively universal codec (method of storing and playing back video), capture cards generally use their own unique codec. If you’re using an analog video capture card, chances are it comes with its own software, including a saved preset that you can load into Premiere’s Load Settings dialog box. These users can rely on the documentation that comes with their capture device, and will seldom stray from the settings designed for it.
