Workshop

Review the questions and answers in this section to try to sharpen your Premiere setup skills. And take a few moments to tackle my short quiz.

Q&A

Q1:I use a DV camcorder but I'm going to record my project on a VHS tape. Should I select NTSC Video for Windows project settings?
A1: No. Because your original source video is DV, it's best to select DV-NTSC Standard 48 KHz. You want to select project settings that match the source material. Later when you “export” your project to tape or some other playback media, you can alter the output settings to match that medium.
Q2:I shot all my footage on DV but I want to include a couple Video for Windows (VfW) clips I downloaded from the Internet. Do I need to make any adjustments to my project settings.
A2: Probably not. But when you edit those VfW clips into your project, you may have to compensate for changes in aspect ratios and resolution (they probably will lookdistorted on a 4:3 aspect ration NTSC TV screen) and their quality will be noticeably poor compared to your DV. You might consider putting them in a window or a box rather than display them in the final project as full-screen images (see Hour 16, “Tips, Tricks, and Techniques—Part 1”).
