Mixing 720p in 1080i sequence
on Apr 2, 2010 at 8:24:11 am

I am adding 720p mts footage into a HDV 1080i sequence by importing through L&T (fcp 7) and it seems to play ok alongside the HDV footage. Do I need to change the 1280 x 720p files into 1080 x 1440?

you'll have a lot fewer issues if you make everything the same, less rendering and fewer calls for help later when things aren't quite "right."

I agree with Robb. You can use Compressor to convert and make sure you enable Frame Controls. Choose the Best quality settings for re-sizing and if the frame rate has to be converted choose Best for that, too. While I've never used it, ClipWrap might also help.

John,
Just glanced at ClipWrap, looks interesting. Fortunately I don't have to deal with rogue codecs very much at all.
