Use Compressor. Convert to whatever you want.

All the best,

Tom

I agree....In your settings you already have a bunch of presets. Go to the Settings Tab, Apple, Other Workflows, Advanced Format Conversions, Standard Definition.

Best of luck.

Lerato,

I'll ask: Why? You can mix HD and SD footage in a timeline; SD has a lower demand than HD.....

But again, understanding the why is valuable for advice.

Best,
