I have a project mostly shot on DVCProHD 720p60/23.98 and I have additional footage from a Canon DSLR shot at 1080/23.98.

Should I use Compressor to transcode toProRes 422 and edit on a ProRes 422 timeline?

How big of a majority is the footage? If it's 90% DVCPRO HD, and 10% DSLR, I say convert the DSLR to ProRes, but edit in the DVCPRO HD sequence.

Thanks for the quick response.

I don't know what the percentage will turn out to be, but I'd guess it will be DVCPro 75%.

Is there much difference between editing in DVCPro and ProRes with these mixed sources?

DVCPRO HD is 8-bit, and anamorphic. ProRes is 10 bit and full raster. Both are 422.

ProRes is the better option, but it all depends on what you will be delivering, and how much rendering ou want to do. You can work fine without rendering, but before you export or to watch at full quality, you'll have to render.
