Im pretty new to this equipment.

My old setup: Cannon XL1 - Adobe PP CS3 - PC

I just got all the new equipment this week.

Did I do right? Is grabbing files from memory card as simples as taking the card out of the camera and putting it in my Macbook pro?

Any other general tips? Any advice so that I don't make rookie mistakes or pick up bad habits?

Mac specs:

2.66, intel core 2 duo
4GB

I'd copy the cards to another hard drive and keep that as your backup before bringing into Premiere first. But yeah basically it's that simple.

Noah,

When I import the AVCHD files, they are playing with some pixelation in PP. Any idea why? Could the AVCHD just be too much for my machine to handle?

Noah,

Im shooting a 1/2 day event tomorrow. I'll be shooting at a Museum. shooting A speaker, a couple short interviews and some broll footage.

I'll then need to put together a a 2 to 3 minute web video and then a slightly longer version on for a DVD.

Im not sure if I should shoot it 720p or 1080p or what frame rate? How do you know? any tips?

Your advice in the past has been great.

-Jim
