Dear fellows, I'm receiving some footages from a client to be edited and make a SD DVD.
The footages are 640x480, square, some 25 fps and some 30 fps. Is it ok for a SD DVD (720x480), take everything to FCP, edit as they are and render the sequences with AIC or PRORES 422, changing their frame sizes to 720x480 with 29,97 fps and interlaced ?
Sorry if it seems a silly question.
PS: Why do we have so many codecs and frame sizes in the world … lol ?
