[Carsten Orlt] "Could you explain how it does work when you put 5 different codecs into one sequence? Will the final output switch on the fly between the different codecs or does it convert everything on the fly to a chosen master codec? I always thought you need a final render in the end at least?"

From Premiere Pro's POV, there is no 'codec'. It's working space is resolution independent so it doesn't matter. When you choose a sequence preset, it makes the frame rate, frame size, aspect ratio etc. conform to what you tell it to, but you don't need to necessarily put that kind of media into the sequence. I'll let McGavran or an Adobe engineer correct me here if I'm in error.

Premiere Pro seeks to make frame rate, codec, aspect ratio etc. unimportant to the editor. you should be able to mix any codec that we understand on the timeline regardless of how different it is from your sequence preset.

The only area where we've had problems is when delivering outputs for broadcasters to iTunes deliverables. When you mix certain formats together on export there are small interlacing issues we've experienced in the past. My understanding is that we have addressed those with CS6 and I'm looking to hear back from my broadcast customers about this specific thing.

Final output is what you make it. The idea is that you never render ever while editing. You only render when you want to make final outputs. So, the PRemiere Pro timeline has 5 different codecs on the timeline and you want to make an OP1a, an H264 and an Animation output. You would select those three output types and Adobe Media Encoder would generate them from the Premiere Pro timeline.

Hopefully, this makes sense and I'm answering your questions. Let me know if I missed something.
