Use Kona 2 card or blow up video?
on Jan 9, 2008 at 8:37:00 pm

I'm editing a project in FCP in a 720p sequence. the SD video I'm using has already been digitized, however, it was not digitized through the Kona 2 card for up convert for 720p HD. I've been told that scaling the SD video up in FCP to 150 percent will give me the proper video size for the sequence. It's the proper size but is this the correct way in doing this?
What is the Kona card doing when set to up-convert 525i29.97 to 720p59.94? Is the Kona card line doubling or just scaling up the video so the scaled SD video doesn't have to be rendered in the HD sequence ( not to mention the 4:3 pillarbox, anamorphic, etc... options)
I have captured some test footage that was captured with the proper settings on the Kona card control panel and ran it next to the scaled up SD video and there really isn't much or any comparison.
Is there something that the Kona card is doing that I'm not seeing or realizing?
