Combining HD & SD in a timeline

Dear All,

We need guidance to combine Standard Definition (SD) and High Definition (HD) video in a single FCP timeline. All footage was shot on a Panasonic HVX-200, the crucial difference being that the first 30 hours were shot in 16:9 24P SD on mini DV tape and the other 70 hours were shot in 720 (24P) HD on P2 cards. Can these two formats be combined in a timeline? Do we first need to up-res the SD or downscale the HD? Please advise!

Thanks in advance.

Best wishes,


JP

What is your mastering format? HD or SD? If HD, then convert all the SD to HD. Best to have a capture card that does this, like the AJA Kona LHi or Matrox MXO2.
