sequence settings and frame size

Which sequence setting is appropriate? ProRes 1280x720 or 960x720

I am working with 4 types of footage:
DVC Pro 720p60 (59.94 fps, frame size 960x720)
DVC Pro 720p30 (29.97 fps, frame size 960x720)
DVC Pro 720p24 (23 fps, frame size 960x720)
ProRes (59.94 fps, frame size 1280x720 - transcoded from original format h264 cannon footage)
the primary formats are in DVC PRO 720P60 (40%) and the ProRes (45%)

I have done several test ProRes sequences in both 1280X720 w/square pixel, and 960x720 w/ hd 960x720 pixel.
exported through compressor set at HD DVD: H.264 60 Min.

I am having difficulty seeing the difference. is there one that is better suited for my delivery and better work flow?

primary release is HD DVD
there will be a significant amount of slowmo and I will most likely use twixtor.

thank you for any insight

ProRes 1280x720 would be best...

But HD DVD delivery? You know that is a dead format, right? It isn't BluRay...it is the one that BluRay beat out...HD DVD is the Toshiba Format that lost...

Thank you for the answer, and the clarification on HD/blueray.

I am currently working on each step of the work flow at this point and I am just an amateur trying to keep up with technology.
So, are there any issues with FCP 6.0.6 and trying to deliver to a blueray final product?

You will need a third party encoder for BluRay with FCP 6. Toast 10 or similar.

Oh...and a BluRay burner. The drive in FCP doesn't burn BluRay.
