I have been slowly figuring out how to do things with Premiere and learned I can encode my footage with media encoder so the edit is a lot smoother. My question is how do I know what dnxhd setting to encode my footage in? When I was making a new preset to do it there are a bunch of dnxhd settings like 10 bit, 12 bit, 444 how do I know which one to use? Thanks
Picking good settings for editing are key, but as you've noticed there is still a lot to choose from.
What platform are you on? (Mac/Windows)
Do you need to be cross-platform in your workflow?
When it comes time to delivering your videos, where are they going? Social Media? Corporate/Industrial Video? Film festivals? TV spots?
Are you doing effects work and/or color correction?
As long as you pick something that that meets or exceeds what you need for your delivery settings, you're in good shape.
I am using Windows. As of now I do not need to be cross-platform but am planning on buying a macbook in the future and will need to know how to do it then. My videos are currently only going to youtube and I am doing some effects and color corrections.
Also I use a variety of cameras. I use a Canon 70D, Gopro, DJI Mavic, and Note 8 phone. I mostly shoot in 1080 24fps. But sometimes do 720 at 240fps on the Note 8 and 1080 at 120fps on the mavic.
