I have files that have the following settings:


Codec: DX50
Name: DivX5.x/6.x
Pics: 29.97 fps
Frames: 29.97
kbps: 999
QF:0.096


Audio:
Codec:0x0050 MPEG-1 Layer 2
Info: 48000Hz 112 kb/s tot , Stereo

I want to bring the file into Adobe Premiere Pro CS 4. Which setting should I use when I do the conversion?

Thanks,

Sean

I would recommend using the following settings:


Custom MPEG4

Keep Source File Dimensions
Video Compressor: Intel H.264
Frame Rate 29.97
Bitrate 1024 kbps
Aspect Ratio: Match the input footage

Audio Compressor: MPEG-4 Audio
Frequency 48000 Hz
Bitrate 112 kbps
Stereo

By following these instructions, you will keep as much of the quality of the original video as possible without making the file size larger than necessary.

When I do that the dimensions of the output file in Premiere are tiny. How do I fix this?

It sounds as if you are saying that the dimensions of the video are too small. In our suggestions for conversion, we asked you to use "Keep Source File Dimensions". If you selected this option, the video that you are importing has exactly the same dimensions as your original video.

To increase the frame size of your video, open the Custom MPEG 4 Properties and select "Change Dimensions". Use the Video Dimensions drop-down to select a larger size. Be sure to leave "Lock Aspect Ratio" checked, to avoid changing the appearance of your video.
