  1. When capturing should the timecode be a round number so that the frame is ok, or can i stop the time at any point i like? Say for eg the footage ends at 00:20:14:03, is it ok to stop it there of should i end it at 00:20:14:00 ?
    I think i have seen that in PremiereCS5 there are some issues when ending the "out" at non round numbers!
    Do i make sense? Is everyone understanding my point?

    Depends on what codec you are capturing with: I-frame codecs (DV, Cineform, ProRes, Lagarith, etc) you can start & stop anywhere, Inter-frame codecs - when used interframe (MPEG2, DivX, AVC, WMV9, etc) depend on the app as to whether it handles the orphans frames in the GOP correctly (IP-type frames should be OK regardless, but IBBP-type can be problematic, PARTICUARLY open-GOP).

    Premiere is not alone in this, all apps that cap + work with Interframe codecs would have to do special handling in order to manage them correctly. However, Premiere, as well as most other pro and semi-pro NLEs are probably built EXPECTING to use I-frame (or simple short-GOP) codecs for capture & edit.

    Possibly. What capture codec are you using?

    Well, it would help if you actually told us the setup/connections, apps, settings, etc. that you are using. You mention Premiere, but I can't tell if that is your capping app or editing app, or neither or both.

    If you have already done some and want to know what it turned out as, get a MediaInfo readout (you could post the detailed text information here).

  8. Download the one for your OS version.

    Mentioning you are on a Mac, and posting in the Mac sub-forum is really important. There are far fewer tools available.

  9. So what exactly does MediaInfo do?

    It gives you info about your media. You can find much of the same data in the premiere project window.
