Hi everyone. Hope you're well. I'm sure this is pretty simple, but I'm just wanting to make sure. If I shot a project on the 7D at 1920 24p, but I'm only planning on it being on a standard def dvd or vimeo or youtube, how would I go about editing the footage as 720? I've had friends who have said that they've edited their projects at a lower resolution since there's no quality loss and if they didn't plan on going to blu ray, then why bother with the big footage. Is this a specific preset situation? Or something else? Thanks!
Edit in a project that matches your video, down-rez when you export for DVD
I always recommend setting up the Project to perfectly match the Source Footage, editing it natively, and then doing the down-rezzing at Export.

Ah, I see. Thanks very much. That's much easier.
