Hi I have a question.
I'm editing an interview shot by HDV using FCP 7.
I want to insert various old materials on that.
The materials are not HDV so I converted them using MPEG.
I wonder if there is the best way to keep their ratio and work with them on HDV sequence without rendering everytime.
Try to use ProRes codecs for all editing purposes unless you have to work w/ files coming straight from camera. Conventional wisdom is to capture HDV as is but change sequence codec to ProRes. It's more productive had you to mix video w/ different resolution if they'd all ProRes files.
