I would still work at the regular resolution of your clips though. You would be really complicating the process by working at SD or 720. Just keep the resolution the same 1920x1080 23.976, but instead of 10bit, capture to a low res format. I don't know if you are mac or pc, so that would be helpful. If you were on a mac, I would say to use a codec like ProResProxy.
That said, I believe Premiere won't let you capture to these formats directly in its capture window. So you may need to capture in another app, like final cut 7, then bring footage into Premiere. Or perhaps you could capture in your capture cards native capture tool, like the one included with the AJA kona cards.
Thanks. I read that, but it looks as if you'd have to manually unlink or re-link on a PER CLIP basis. Is there a way to batch digitize a timeline in a different resolution from what it was cut in?

You could always use project manager.
So you do your whole edit at a lower resolution. Save out a simplified
version of your project with just your final timeline (extra step to
keep it a bit more organized). Go to project-project manager. Select
create a new trimmed project.
Then click make offline. Then you can include handles or not ( i think
you may be able to specify this on your final recapture, but if not
you'd want to do it here).
Then open your new offline project, and batch capture all of the offline
That sounds promising, thanks. I'm new to CS6 after years on Avid DS. There are still many mysteries.
Yeah, just make sure when you recpature, to specify the proper settings you want to capture in. Do a quick 1 or 2 clip test before testing the whole edit in this workflow.
Honestly, I'd get the necessary disk storage with an Areca controller, set them up in a very fast RAID 3.
Not really practical or cost effective as I'd need a 200 TB array just for this job.
