I also have copies of the files as H.264 in their respective resolutions.
In terms of the actual editing, nothing too crazy; Just a couple transitions and that's it. The final destination is the web, maintaining the best quality, and possibly SD DVD.
My question is what would be the best workflow? I understand that there's going to be quite a bit of upconverting and downconverting. Maybe encoding 720p prores versions of everything, editing that, and compressing 720p H.264? What do you guys think?
