Stop Motion Animation (2) : LUSENET : Editing DV Films : One Thread

I'm thinking of purchasing the new Sony VAIO system, the PCV-R538DS, along with the DCR TRV-900 to do some clay animation. The TRV-900 is the only camera I can find that will take close to single frames (it's single frame feature actually takes the equivalent of 4 frames per second). I only need two of those frames for each shot. Is there a way thru Adobe Premiere 5.1 to take out the extra two frames? And can I playback those frames to DV tape at 30 frames per second? Thanks for your help!

either you take out the two frames manually or check up what it gives if you stick all the frames together (4 frames a second), lets say you have 15 seconds of footage=15*4=60 frames - you want al this frames in 1 second as yo need only the half of the frames. So you put the clip speed on 1500% and then you make sure you have the video setting on 30fps.
