Footage to Sequence Matchup
Summary: Camera settings and choosing a sequence are causing rendering problems in CS4 Premiere.

Hello All-

I am running into a problem while uploading video onto CS4 Premiere as to which sequence to use. I shoot with my 7D:

1920 x 1080 (1.0) Alpha
29.97 fps
48000Hz - 16 bit- Stereo.

I have been using the HDV 1080p30 preset since I have had the camera and since some of the settings are off I automatically have to render the video, which takes FOREVER (since I am assuming it has to convert the video to the new format).

It has recently been suggested by someone that I should be using AVCHD 1080i30 (60i). He said AVC is the faster version of HDV by Sony. So I have recently tried this sequence, but when I drop in the video to the timeline it still has a yellow bar over it confirming that the video needs to be rendered. Although the settings look identical to what I am shooting it still is giving me problems.

Note: I am using a MAC. I also am no guru on computers or camera settings. I have been doing this for a couple of months and this is one problem that needs to be fixed. I love to shoot video but when it takes 2 days for me to edit a 3 minute clip, there is no motivation.

Thanks in Advance for your help

You are trying to work with the following source video specification according to your post:

1920 x 1080 (1.0) Alpha
29.97 fps
48000Hz - 16 bit- Stereo.

The HDV format is 1440 pixels wide so every frame must be downsized from 1920 to 1440 which requires rendering. AVCHD 1080i30 (60i) requires conversion from progressive to interlaced so it also needs rendering. You should try AVCHD1080p30 which is 1920 by 1080 progressive and matches your source video.
