The TV is a JVC I'Art and is not widescreen. As most of my stuff is broadcast on the local access channel, I use it to check titles, and get a better idea of what it looks like on TV.

I do make copies on DVD for distribution, but for broadcast, I output to tape. (back to Mini DV)

I'm using PPro 1.5 and I did do a search, but didn't find an answer that fit my particular question. I'd hate to have to resize every clip especially since I'm just guessing at the correct size.

Anyway, thanks for the reply. It's good to know there are people out there willing to help, even if I find out I can't do what I want to do. ;-)

Wow! That thing must have cost an arm and a leg! - - - It did! I used to have three of each.

You might want to check the manual for your TV to see if it has a feature to letterbox widescreen content. Looking at the JVC web site I see that some of their analog TVs have this feature. Being a smaller model, though, there is probably less chance of this feature being included. Doesn't hurt to check, anyways.

EDIT: By the way, so you have a better idea of what to look for, JVC is calling the feature "16:9 Anamorphic DVD Mode."

external monitor

how do you set up an external monitor (i.e. a TV!) for use with premiere pro? i would like to use a CRT TV to preview footage.

specifically, i would like to know what kind of connecting cable do you use? i understand the cable needs to go from the video card to the TV, but how does it attach? scart cable? do you need certain drivers for it to work?

ps i am in England, therefore PAL

Hi Jon,

If you have a hardware accelerator card i.e. Matrox RTX100, Pinnacle DV500, Canopus etc then you simply hook up your monitor via the RCA phono connections (Composite + L&R audio) or via S-video + Phono L&R audio on the braekout box.

If you only have a SCART connection on your TV then you need a Phono to SCART adapter (about 5).

If you don't have any hardware acceleration (i.e. you are running in software only mode). Then you can connect your DV camera (provided it is able to do analog pass-thru)to your firewire port (Make sure the camera is in VCR mode) and then connect the analog outputs on the camera (S-video, phono etc) to your TV. You also need to make sure that Premiere is set to Preview via firewire.

Hope this helps!

Ps nice to see a few more guys from the UK!

Not exactly what you asked but relevant to the project trimer feature.....

I don't recommend running the project trimer feature unless you are absolutely sure you are done with video editing. If you have to go back and adjust clips your screwed if there is not enough video left either side of the clip.

Software for video encoding

Hi Everyone
I am looking for an all around video encoder software. One that will convert other video files to AVI or AVI to other video files. I use Premiere Pro 1.5 and sometimes I run across a file that PPro won't accept. I did a search on Google and came across this product.

Easy Video Converter. Sounds as if it will do all that I would like. However if anyone knows of a better software please let me know. Thank you for your help

Well Procoder is very high quality and very powerful, but it's nearly 20X the price of the software you've linked to - ouch!

Depending on what it is you want to open and recode, you may find Virtualdubmod helpful. It's freeware and can open mpeg1, mpeg2 and vob files, in addition to various flavors of avi.

My tutorials are available online for $25 per month. You can probably get After Effects, Photoshop and Premiere Pro all in the same month and then cancel if you plan it right.

I would reccomend using Procoder Express. Costs about $60 and it is excellent.

Darn it!

I've used the Mackie with a trial of Vegas and it works superbly but I think I'm right in saying it's the only NLE in its price class that does support it. I'm currently deciding which package to get and I'm pretty surprised that support for these kind of surfaces seems so rare. I know that Adobe Audition offers support, which in turn leads me to ask if anyone finds the Audition/Premiere workflow a smooth one, or is it a pain switching between two programs?

Ho hum..

Hi Andy. Some details would be a good start. Where are you at and what is wrong? Have you gone through the Adobe support and followed their steps?
