Is it better to convert DVCPRO HD footage to prores? If the answer is yes, how can I do it if I don't have a capture card? Compressor? Drop the DVCPRO HD footage in a prores sequence and render?

I made some research on the Cow but haven't found the answer to my question.

Thanks

I've not heard of a lot of people converting to ProRes. I think most edit in a DVCProHD timeline. We've always edited our shows in a DVCProHD timeline and have been happy with the results.

As John indicated, it's not necessary to convert your footage to ProRes.

If you are going to implement still images, graphics, and/or motion graphics simply change your timeline compressor to ProRes (not ProResHQ) in your Sequence Settings. If this causes you to render all the time, wait until you are ready for final output to change your timeline compressor to ProRes.

The only time it will be beneficial to convert to ProRes is when working with Color, but even then, the ProRes conversion won't take place until you render out of Color, not before going to color.
