  • 59.94i or 50i and presets questions...

    Hi,
    I'm just starting to use my recently purchased Edius NX Express system with Pro version 4.5. The hardest thing I find is figuring out what presets I need to use. I'm working right now with standard def mini dv footage. I don't know crap when it comes to specs and technical stuff and I don't understand the difference between 59.94i and 50i. It gives me the option to capture in either of these and I'm not sure what is the best one to use for the footage I'm working with.

    I also have a Canon XH a1 which I will be using HDV footage from and I'll need to know the presets to use for a project for that as well. Also, if I want to work with that HDV footage on the timeline in HD, do I then have the option to master that project to file in SD as well? I'd like to eventually be able to make SD and HD dvd's of the same project, if that is possible.

    I don't find the Edius manual to be helpful with this at all. Everything I read seems to assume you already understand all these specifications. I don't so if someone could break it down into laments terms, I'd really appreciate the help. Thanks in advance.

      EasyEdit gave you the answer.

      But, what I would recommend to you is to just take an afternoon and read posts on the forum.
      If you don't know about frame rates, do a search on frame rates.
      If you don't know about HD to SD downconversion, do a search for that.
      This forum is full of information. Take a little time to get acquainted with the product. Trust me, it will not come to you over night. We all make mistakes and trial and error will get you the biggest net gain of information of all.

      Once you get a grasp of the equipment and a basic knowledge of the software, it will be much easier for us to help you in the long run.
      At least we will have a framework from which to base our answers.

      The manual should, as far as I can remember, give you the basic frame rate setups for HD.
      Good luck.
