4K Video workflow for HDV Output?

I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this -- and I welcome recommendations -- but here's what we're looking at:

Because we ultimately output to HDV, producers figured they could shoot 4K and get a second, blown-up shot out of one piece of media with no loss of resolution (in this case a medium close up and a forehead-to-chin close up). Sounds reasonable, but they didn't figure out the workflow in advance. They ultimately got a kid to output two versions from Premiere, so we ended up with two pieces of media, but it took forever.

Is anyone else out there doing this? Does anyone have a better workflow?

Hi, Dudley:

I'm guessing you mean that you are editing an HD 1920x1080 project, not actually mastering to the HDV codec. I shoot in 4K and edit in a 1080 timeline quite often. In a nutshell, I just edit my 4K material scaled to fit the 1080 frame, then when the edits are done, I go back and scale up the clips I want to "punch in" on. This happens right in the timeline––no need to render out an extra piece of media. I edit on FCPX, but it should be a very similar process in Premiere Pro as well. You do need a system that can handle the 4K though!
