Chapter 2. Starting a Project > Specifying Project Settings

Specifying Project Settings

For the vast majority of users, the default preset specifies the most appropriate settings. However, you might set a different default if you aren’t using the dominant video standard for your region (see the sidebar “NTSC and PAL”). And although most folks shoot video in the standard format (4:3 aspect ratio), some cameras shoot in a widescreen format (16:9 aspect ratio). In these instances, go to the Setup dialog box to change the default preset.

You can also create your own setting presets; but because Premiere Elements is designed to work with DV projects, your choices are limited. Except for the video standard (NTSC or PAL) and the image aspect ratio (standard 4:3, or widescreen 16:9), you aren’t permitted to set the fundamental characteristics of the video and audio—which could deviate from the DV standard.
