I need to edit a project shot in the above format at HD resolution.
For speed of editing and monitoring on my old MC 4.5 I would like to edit in PAL DV420. (The final use will be SD)
Can anyone recommend: 1. The best QT resolution to convert the AVCHD to in order to maximise the DV quality, including if possible the resolution, bitrate, field order etc. 2. The best Avid export setting to produce a QT at full DV resolution.
OK I've gone ahead with default settings for the ingest and am not very happy with the quality, but at least I've been able to get on with the edit. So I'm hoping I can treat this as an off-line and re-ingest at better (DV) quality for a final conform - so suggestions for import & export settings will be most welcome.
