As you have an Adrenaline system I would personally stay in HD until the last possible moment. It will use more space, obviously, but any resizing you do will be sharper and just generally DNxHD holds up better than DV420 once you start doing any effects and colour correction. I am trying to think whether if you switch the project to an SD format but leave the footage as is without transcoding, Avid still accesses the res of the HD file when resizing. Maybe someone else knows? If this is the case then you could just switch the project to SD, do a mixdown of the sequence and you'd be ready to play out. Otherwise, you might try exporting a QT Ref of your HD sequence, then switching to SD and importing the QT Ref.
