1080 p footage workflow CS4
on Feb 11, 2011 at 11:09:47 am

I am trying to get a workflow for some 1080 50p footage from a Panasonic SD 700.
I use cs 4 premier and AE cs 4

I Edit in Premier with the sequence at 25 fms progressive as there is no option for 50 progressive.
I want to know this. I want to output to format that keeps the 1080 1920 and is 25fms per second. With every very combination that I try the final render is of a very degraded quality. I have tried using intermediate raw footage and also rendering directly from the premier sequence at 25 fms progressive. I also bought footage directly into AE and made a composition with this footage then tried a variety of render options.
Ideally I would like to output to a pal format from a quick time conversion. I need to submits for a competition and they prefer "quicktime Pal data dvd" Is there something that I am doing wrong? I am not an absolute novice and so am a bit at a loss.

To recap 1080 1920 25fms progressive through AE then final output to what format to maintain quality?
If not using 50p as in cs5 or other software is there shooting in that format in the first place othere than having that footage for a later date/edit?

Thanks in advance

Use Adobe Media Encoder to render out your project. You can open a AE project in AME and render to MPEG2 for 1920x1080p 25 fps. This should give you a good quality output.
