Questions related to video editing
I'm not sure if this is the right place to post my question, as this forum is for photography and not videography, but I've found it so helpful I wonder if anyone can help me anyway.
I'm just getting into video editing with the videos I take on my Canon 500D. I'm stuck on the settings to use for the video editing project (I'm using kdenlive):
If I shoot 1920x10800, the 500D manual says 20 frames per second. Does this mean I should stick to 20 frames per second for the video I make in kdenlive?
For 1280x720, it says 30 fps, so no difficulties there. 30 fps, not 29.97, right?
Also, the 500D manual doesn't mention interlaced vs. progressive. I just about understand what these terms mean now, but I don't know which settings to use in kdenlive. Mostly I'm posting stuff to youtube, but I like full quality copies left on my computer.
