Hello,

I'm new to Premiere Pro CC 2020 and I have two related questions.

 

#1

I'm on a Windows 10 machine and I'm learning the ropes with creating transcoded files. When I set the Ingest drop-down menu to Transcode, I don't know what Preset to use. Is there one that is optimal for Windows?

 

#2

If I'm understanding correctly, the reason to transcode in the first place is to convert the footage to a format that is less likely to cause system performance issues. Of the first half dozen presets in the list, only Match Source H.264 High Bitrate produced a smaller file size than the original. The other choices generated files that ballooned in size compared to the original. How does a larger files size equate to better performance? I would think it would be the opposite.

It's only an island if you look at it from the water.
