I've been a member for years and finally editing my own feature length doc with premiere pro.
Thank you all for sharing such great information and building this community.
My biggest questions right now
1. Which canvas should I be editing on? (4k? 2k? 1920x1080? what's the standard for festivals and broadcast?)
2. Since I could edit with 1/4 res, is it really beneficial creating proxies?
3. Will my MacBook Pro be strong enough to handle big exports?
4. Is there a guide to avoid big mistakes? suggest workflows?

Create a sequence that matches your largest delivery size.
[Leo Ratner]"2. Since I could edit with 1/4 res, is it really beneficial creating proxies?"
yes. Proxies help with overall speed and efficiency if editing on a less powerful computer like your MBP.
[Leo Ratner]"3. Will my MacBook Pro be strong enough to handle big exports? "
No. If it's going to be a 4k film, upgrade your edit computer or use proxies if an upgrade isn't possible.
[Leo Ratner]"4. Is there a guide to avoid big mistakes? suggest workflows?"
Use the workflow guide that's best suited for your media format. i.e., if the film is going to be shot on Red search out the Red Premiere workflow guide from their site.
