Default footage: DV50 PAL 16:9. Adding up GoPro Hero - what format is best?
on Sep 21, 2012 at 9:08:50 am

Our camera records DV50 (HPX500). Native dimension 720x576 (1024x576)@25fps

We have a GoPro as backup, recording 1920x1080@25fps, progressive.

Now, what format would be the best for mixed playback?

I can export (either using MPEG Streamclip of QT 7) to a variety of format, but I don't have unlimited disk.
Saving as DV50 (same as default footage) is one option, but how does the progressive->interlaced thing work?

Perhaps it's better so stick with ProRes LT?

Any tips are greatly appreciated!

When you want to figure out the resolution you want, you need to start at the end.

What do you need to DELIVER: SD or HD? This will determine your sequence settings.

If you need HD, you should know that your SD camera's footage won't look as good as the HD footage.

We'll stay in SD, since that is our default format.

Downconverting to DV50 is perhaps one way to go? But what about going from progressive to interlaced?

And if so, what tool does the best job?

Convert the GoPro to Prores.
Will work well on a DV50 sequence.

[Niklas Wikman] "But what about going from progressive to interlaced?"
Progressive stuff has no problem on an interlaced sequence. No the otherway around.

Try MPGstreamclip to transcode and downconvert at once. You can make the footage 1020x576 SQ pixels, so will fit.
