GH2: working on MTS files in Premiere 5.5 - best settings?


Recommended Posts

    I am working in Premiere 5.5 on many .MTS files from a recent trip and at this stage just want to clean them up into various chunks of suitable footage that I will use later and/or upload to a stock footage site. The footage was shot with the 44Mbit hack for the GH2 and I am not sure what combination of settings to use in Premiere 5.5.

At the moment I have chosen Quicktime from the format box and am using the H.264  codec. This gives me about 30% larger files than the original .MTS file and they seem to play back OK.

Previous combinations to this (like Motion jpg A), yielded ridiculously large files, like 880 mb for 21 s of footage.

Can any one tell me if there is an [u]ideal combination of settings[/u] in Premiere 5.5 to use for GH2 footage, to retain the highest quality?

Other settings in Premiere are 1920x1080, square pixels, frame rate 23.976 etc. Any other boxes I need to check or uncheck or tweak?

thanks for your attention.
