I am editing an HDV project and I was hoping to "export to movie" some of my sequences in full resolution (i.e. 1920x1080) in order to start a new project in which to assemble all of the sections. Although I will ultimately export in SD for DVD, I want to have a big 1920x1080 video file of the project to put on either DigiBeta or HDCAM for projecting in a theater.
Aside from the fact that it takes forever to export (over an hour for a minute of footage) I'm finding that there is a slight drop in quality and/or something "funny" about the exported movies - it's hard to explain other than to say that things aren't as clear.
The export settings that I am using are:
Cinepak Codek by Radius
D1/DV NTSC Widescreen 16:9 (1.2)
Quality - 100% high
Recompress: Maintain Data Rate
Keyframe Every 15 frames
I know this is a bit of an inexperienced newbie question, so thanks in advance for your time.
