Mixing anamorphic 1280x1080 with 1920x1080?
on Mar 3, 2011 at 10:22:03 pm

So I've got a mixed batch of footage from two cameras, and I was wondering if anyone had any experience to share in regards to mixing anamorphic 1280x1080p and 1920x1080p. The anamorphic was shot on an HPX500, the 1920 shot on HDX900.

So, my current plan is to get all the footage into FCP, do my edit, and during the export set the appropriate aspect ratio and resolution, etc.

But are there best practices here I'm missing? Is there anyway I should pre-treat these files before the edit? Really I'm just curious if there's anything I'm missing or anything I could do to better match these up. Thanks for all the help. Don't have much experience matching multiple cameras for the same edit (just lucky the cameras are at least somewhat similar).

That is great but I do not understand why when you delete 1/3 of the information that the quality would not suffer accordingly.
Enjoy

It does suffer. 1280x1080 footage is noticeably softer. But as it's moving images it's pretty forgiving. Just don't work in a 1280x1080 seq. Graphics will have considerable stairstepping. Work in 1920x1080 pro res seq.

Bret;
Thanks, if I am understanding you I should up res the 1280 to 1920.

No. Just put it in the timeline. That's the format. It saves on data rate by sacrificing horizontal resolution.
