Chad Perkins: As I mentioned in the last movie, I prefer to use Premiere because I can just …bring in H.264 files and just get to editing them. …But you may prefer a different editing system or you may prefer to transcode your files …anyway, so that they run smoother even in Premiere. …If you're using Adobe products, you might want to use the Adobe Media Encoder. And you …can just drag and drop files from your computer's operating system, either Explorer or the Finder …on the Mac, just drag them here and then you could change the format through this drop down …and you could change or use a series of presets.…
You could also change where you are going to save it, and whenever you're ready you …just click the Play button. …And whatever files you have loaded here into this window, will render one after another. …Now as I mentioned, the H.264 files that most DSLRs create are really tough on editing systems. …Even with Premiere, if you start adding a bunch of effects, it's going to start slowing things down. …
