I'm a newb to this forum (1st post actually) so if I have posted my question in the wrong area my apologies, I'll be happy to yank and repost, just let me know where.
Here's my issue:
I have a shoot coming up and we will be using 4 different cameras (I don't like it either but there's no changing it):
- Sony Z1U's
- Sony EX1's
- JVC GYHM 700's
- Panasonic P2 (unknown model number as of yet)
This footage needs to be streamlined into a single project in FCP 7. My question is, what are the best settings to avoid hiccups?
My immediate thoughts were to set a sequence at 1920 x 1080 HD and let FCP upconvert the HDV material. I'd also like to think that FCP could handle the different codecs as well, but I'm concerned about quality loss.
