HVX200 and 5dmkII footage in 1080p timeline
on May 14, 2013 at 5:07:24 pm

Hello everybody,

I have just finished a backstage shooting using my old Panasonic HVX200E @ 1080/25p and a 5dMkII @ 1080/25p. The 5D footage was transcoded to ProRes 422HQ.
Now I have to match the HVX and 5D footage in the same FInal Cut Pro 7 timeline: due the fact that HVX footage is 1440x1080 and 5D is 1980x1080, what's the best timeline setting?

The project is meant for the HD web (YouTube and Vimeo) but ther's a high probability that a BluRay will be produced later.

Thank you very much for helping!

ProRes HQ 1920x1080. The DVCPRO HD will fill it fine.

Thank you Shane, this is how I actually edit the footage and on my reference monitor it looks really fine to me. I was in doubt if uprezzing 1440 to 1920 would loose quality.

It's not really uprezzing...it's stretching pixels to fill the gap. Slightly softer image...but it still holds up.
