Shot in 1920X1080 AVC Intra 100 P2 23.98 delivering to 720X480 WMV letter boxed.
Will be using Episode to generate the final WMV file.
Planning to edit everything in 1920 Pro Res and down-convert at the end. Is this the way to achieve the best quality or would it be better to edit in an SD format from the beginning.
Worried about getting fuzzy text when down converting.
Lots of graphic and text in this project.
thank you

Your key concern seems to be graphics. Personally I'd avoid downconverting graphics if possible.

If you're ONLY doing SD delivery then edit in SD. BTW editing HD in SD timeline gives you the advantage of being able to reposition video, create pseudo camera moves, etc.

You could edit in HD and then downconvert that to SD and add the graphics in an SD timeline as well.

I'd always recommend doing a quick test before investing a lot of time in completing a project to find the workflow is less then ideal.
