1280 x 720 for short film

Guys,

I am filming my (no budget) short film on a 7d and I am sticking with 1280 x 720 60p only for the reason that it is painful for me to edit full 1920x 1080 on my 4gig windows laptop in Adobe Premiere. (lots of render crashes, slow rendering..just painful).

So with that said switching is not really an option (since I have already filmed the first quarter of the film in 1280).

My question is HOW MUCH LOSS will i see when I go to display in a small movie theater. Will it be so noticeable that I am booed out of the theater and called an amateur? or is 1280 not such a terrible way to go?

If you get booed out of the theater, it won't be because you shot in 720 instead of 1080. It will be because your story sucks. Make sure your story doesn't suck.

I shoot at 1080p but edit in DVD resolution, then render in full HD.
Works a treat if your system is less than ideal!

oh? Daniel could you walk me through the steps of doing that? I edit with Premiere and I am not sure which setting would be DVD ( I went to open a new file now to see my options, I am not sure which one would allow DVD?

I usually edit in HDV

I'd ask this on the Adobe forum. Bottom line is there are many ways to 'edit offline' so that you'll have an easier workflow editing but still be able to do your final output in 1080p. There's no reason to limit yourself to 720p just for the sake of a little better editing performance.

Proxy editing (editing in smaller resolutions) in Premiere is quite easy. Batch transcode all your footage to your desired editing resolution. Edit your footage in an appropriate Premiere project. Open the locked edit in an HD project, set all of your source footage to offline and relink it with the FullHD files. A bit time consuming, but works quite well.

Really? In Vegas you just click whatever resolution in a drop down list, edit, then put it back to HD and you're done haha! Goodness!

I think, with Premiere CS5 it's possible to change resolution of any sequence any time.
Maybe I misunderstood your post, but that hasn't anything to do with proxy-editing, has it? You still have to relink the low-res clips to the high-res videos...

Is this possible in Final Cut? Could you guide me the steps. Thanks! :)
