premiere Pro capture format

I'm shooting HD footage and capturing to an HD project in CS3 but it is looking very grainy. I notice it saves my captured clips as mpegs, should it be saving as mpeg2 or mpeg4 to get better quality, if possible? I am a newbie, but still I used the default project settings for an HD project so I thought it would at least look better than 8mm footage!

Thanks

Exactly what preset are you using? You are not using the trial version, right? To do HDV, Premiere needs to be bought, paid for, and activated.

This should be in the Premiere forum.

No, it should go in Attend the World Premiere, but don't post again... the moderators will move.
